US History Teacher
Summer School 2017
Are you looking for a stimulating summer teaching opportunity? One that will afford you the opportunity 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 US History teacher. Course description: James Baldwin asserted that “the great force of history comes from the fact that we carry it within us, are unconsciously controlled by it in many ways, and history is literally present in all that we do.” This course provides students with a foundation for understanding the modern United States in all of its complexity. It also provides a foundation for active citizenship, exploring themes of power, the establishment of a republican form of government, and the intersection of politics and economics. The course is built around essential questions in the study of United States history, such as how foreign policy has changed over the past two centuries. Writing is an important feature of the offering and students will engage in both historical analysis and research projects. 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 26 – August 4, 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. There will be a mandatory orientation on Thursday, June 22.
