10th Grade English Teacher (Summer School)
|School Name||Lakeside School|
|City, State||Seattle, WA|
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 10th Grade English teacher. This teacher will be responsible for teaching English 10, a course that explores how authors from diverse international backgrounds have used literature to explore personal, cultural, and national identities as well as related issues of social justice. Students investigate the ways in which literature can be a vehicle for the creation and reflection of cultural and identity, and for the understanding of and resistance to power and privilege. Students hone their expressive skills through a range of analytical, creative, personal and persuasive writing assignments, as well as through public speaking, collaborative assignments and creative projects. Texts include Jhumpa Lahiri’s “Interpreter of Maladies,” Edwidge Danticat’s “The Dew Breaker,” Jeannette Winterson’s “Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?, Trevor Noah’s “Born a Crime,” a play by Shakespeare, and additional novels, short stories, poems and works of nonfiction. This is a graded course earning one year of credit. There will be two to three hours of homework assigned each night. The position will be part time. The class will run June 22 – July 31, 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 18.

The stipend for this position is $7,500. Lunch is included. The course will only run if enough students register. Enrollment will remain open until June 1. If the number of students enrolled is too small on June 1, the course will not run, and, therefore, the stipend will not be paid.
