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 US Historyteacher . 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 yearlong 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. Motivated students who wish to take the United States AP exam are encouraged to consult their teacher early in the course regarding additional preparation to increase the chances of success. This is a graded course earning one year of credit. 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.
