Are you looking for a stimulating summer teaching opportunity—one that will allow you to be part of a growing program, teach a dynamic and exceptional curriculum, work with other talented educators, and work on a beautiful campus that is rich in history and technology?
Lakeside School’s Summer School Programs is currently recruiting for a 9th/10th grade Writing teacher. This course provides training in different modes of writing, particularly analytical writing, to help students at the freshman and sophomore level. Special attention will be paid to critical thinking, organization, clarity, proper use of grammar and punctuation, and citation protocol. Students will study various short works of literature (stories, poems, plays, and essays) to orient writing tasks and will engage in conferencing as well as peer-editing workshops to work through various drafts. This course is not graded; however, there will be about two hours of homework assigned each day. The position will be part time. The class will be offered twice, June 25 – July 13 and July 16 – August 3. For both sessions, the class will meet 8:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. There will be an orientation on Thursday, June 21.
