Description:

The Urban Teaching Apprenticeship Program at the University of Pennsylvania is recruiting a part-time lecturer to teach the course “Differentiating Instruction for English Language Learners.” This course provides teacher candidates with dispositions and strategies to differentiate instruction for English language learners from culturally diverse populations. It also provides a basis for candidates to collaborate with school staff who support ELL students. Candidates will develop a skill set of inclusive, instructional techniques aligned with the sheltered instruction observation protocol (SIOP), the WIDA assessment framework, and other pedagogies that support language learning in the content areas.

This position is part-time and non-tenure-track and involves in-person teaching; pay is competitive. Applications will be reviewed as soon as they are received and will close once current positions are filled. Due to the volume of applications, only candidates selected for an interview will be contacted. No letters of recommendation are required at this time.

The Urban Teaching Apprenticeship master's program is a practice-focused program that prepares new teachers to enact student-centered learning and to use innovative teaching tools in urban schools, premised on the belief that children are curious, creative, and competent. Coursework and intensive field experiences build on content expertise and support the development of pedagogical content knowledge. Teachers leave the program inspired to use the power of teaching to deepen student learning, transform schools, and increase educational equity.

Vision

 

As engines of knowledge and new ideas, universities have the unique potential to define the future rather than be defined by it; to pioneer change rather than merely manage it. To do so requires a plan both visionary and pragmatic. The Penn Compact 2022 motivates community members to innovate, be radically inclusive, and positively impact their local, national, and global communities. 

 

Penn’s fundamental priorities — increasing access, integrating knowledge and engaging locally, nationally and globally — are supported by the three core values that make us uniquely Penn: inclusion, innovation, and impact.
