The program lasts over five consecutive Saturdays from January 19th, 2019 through February 16th, 2019 with February 23rd as a snow date. Incumbents attend training, write curriculum, and teach classes to K-5 school age children. Course proposals can be almost any subject, including but not limited to:

Experience teaching K-12 school age children in a classroom setting is strongly preferred, or experience teaching at the university level, as is knowledge of curriculum development and classroom management.
Applicant screening begins September 6th, 2018 but the position will remain open until filled.
Please thoughtfully complete all of the questions for this application in their entirety. Helpful Hints for Course Proposals:
-SEP seeks classes that are not found in the "regular" education coursework. If you wish to teach a more traditional topic (culture classes, astronomy, etc.), find a twist or a new lens for engaging learners with this topic. -Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics classes are always in high demand. Could you integrate any of these areas into your course at some point? -SEP values active and authentic learning. Our curriculum focuses less on "content coverage" and more on depth and engaging these learners with key ideas and principles from various disciplines and fields. -NOTE: This is only a proposal. We just want to find out about your initial ideas - full curriculum development will come later.
