Part-Time Positions:

Upper School Adjunct Teacher

Upper School Adjunct Teacher

Passionate about the work you do? Want to share that passion with young people? The Bennett Day Upper School is hiring adjunct teachers for the 2019-2020 school year. Bring your knowledge and experience into the classroom, sharing your passion as an adjunct faculty member in a progressive learning environment. Work with a flexible schedule and explore an opportunity to inspire others. Reporting to our Director of Upper School, you will be a part of a unique and growing school who is looking to change the way students experience school.

 

The Opportunity:

As an adjunct, we have two unique ways to get involved at Bennett Day:

  1. Subject-Based Seminars: You will be teaching a seminar in your area of expertise over the course of 12 weeks (one trimester). This would be considered “traditional” teaching, in the sense that the course will operate much like any high school or college course. The delivery of the seminar will require a mixture of meetings with the class 3 times per week, with each class period running 90 minutes. These meeting times can serve as:
    1. time for clarification based upon common questions that have been received during the week or questions students currently have.
    2. time to give direct instruction.
    3. time to work on an activity with students to reinforce student knowledge.

A typical week would include meeting with students during required times, providing feedback to each student, answering student questions in a timely manner, and managing online coursework.

  1. PBL Subject Teaching: Every student in our school takes a cross curricular, themed, Project Based Learning (PBL) experience every trimester. These PBLs are co-taught by our lead teachers, but require subject-level experts to help plan and implement content in specific areas of need. In this role, you would be bringing your expertise to the team for approximately 10-12 hours each week to:
    1. Help brainstorm and plan content relevant to student interest and content needs
    2. Create learning experiences for students in your subject as it relates to the theme of the PBL
    3. Lead students through activities related to the PBL

Weeks as a PBL Subject teacher may vary in terms of contact time with students and expected duties, depending on the needs of the specific PBL.

For both options, you will also be asked to assess students based on specific demonstrations of skills mapped to our competency-based system. If you are unfamiliar with competency-based learning, here is an article that explains it. We do not use A-F letter grades.

The Salary: $3000/course (each course=one trimester)

Expected Hours Per Week: 10-12

 

QUALIFICATIONS

  • Knowledge of progressive education practices, such as project-based learning or Harkness/Socratic seminars
  • Demonstrated commitment to teaching in a competency-based learning programs
  • Commitment to the continual development of one’s cultural competence
  • Commitment to ongoing professional development
  • 2 years experience working with adolescents (ages 12-20) in an education setting
  • Commitment to attend the on-boarding process so as to become acquainted with Bennett Day’s methods and mission
  • Experience in or strong desire to work in a Project Based Learning environment

STRONGLY DESIRED QUALIFICATIONS

  • Experience designing learning experiences
  • Interest in the Science of the Adolescent Brain/Learning Science
  • Working knowledge of the field of design in education, especially design and systems thinking
  • Working knowledge of one additional language (desired, but not required)

 

On-boarding:

Every adjunct teacher needs to complete a Bennett Day School orientation in order to understand the methods, assessment and pedagogy style employed by the school. This will occur over several days prior to the beginning of the trimester.

On-boarding is a training period to help those new to Bennett Day School to create a meaningful curriculum and assess students in a competency model. Adjuncts will bring their proposals as well as skills they expect students to gain to workshop the creation of coursework with competencies that fit the values of Bennett Day.

Each Bennett Day adjunct teacher must participate in an initial day-long in-person visit to the school to get to know the students.

To Apply:

  1. Submit a proposal relating to your area of interest. The proposal should include:
    1. If you are proposing a stand-alone course, please provide a sample of what your curriculum would look like week-to-week for the entire trimester. (*We understand that things change depending on student needs, but we would like to see an outline of what a student might accomplish), explicit skills a student could obtain by completing this seminar (see our competency map for initial guidance, although you could add your own as well), and a list of deliverables that can be added to a student portfolio
    2. If you are submitting to work on a PBL, please identify your area of expertise that you would bring to the PBL, an identification of the skills you think high school students would gain based on your involvement, and a link to any PBL work you’ve done in the past.
  2. Submit a cover letter and resume that describes your experience, and why you would be a good fit to teach your topic of interest.
