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 World History teacher . This course is a survey of the formative events, ideas, and conditions of the world from the rise of Islam to the Age of Enlightenment (from the eighth to 18th centuries). Using project-based learning, students will practice the skills necessary for successful historical inquiry: critical reading of a variety of sources, cogent analytical writing, participating successfully in class discussions, engaging in substantive research, and speaking persuasively. Projects include an ancient cultural heritage preservation project, a role-playing “diplomacy challenge” project for early modern empires, and an Art in Context project focusing on the European Renaissance. The course culminates with a student-driven, comprehensive research project. This is a graded course, and students will earn one year of credit for the course. There will be about three hours of homework assigned each day. The position will be part time. The class will run June 25 – August 3, 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., with one additional hour per day of designated office hours. There will be a mandatory orientation on Thursday, June 21.
