World History Teacher: Summer School 2019

Position Type Teacher
Start 06/20/2019
School Name Lakeside School
City, State Seattle, WA 
Posted 01/11/2019

Are you looking for a stimulating summer work opportunity - one that will allow you to be part of a growing program, work with talented educators, and enjoy a beautiful campus rich in history and technology? If so, Lakeside School's Summer School program is for you!

Our summer program is currently recruiting for a Word History Teacher. Lakeside Summer School offers for-credit and skill-building courses for students entering grades 9-12.
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 may 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 24 – August 2, 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 20.
