The Center for Educational Partnerships at UC Berkeley seeks qualified temporary non-tenure track, part-time Instructors and Co-Instructors (TSPs) for Summer 2019 to teach summer courses to high school students in various areas of study including Applied and Pure Mathematics; Humanities e.g., Writing, Research, Critical Theory) and Sciences (Physical, Biological and Earth Sciences). The period of employment is June 1 through July 23, 2019. Actual instruction takes place from June 17- July 18, 2019. Instructors for the Pre-College TRIO Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math & Science Program will create and implement engaging and academically rigorous five-week courses for low-income, first-generation-to-college high school students. Class sizes are small (15-20 students) and are taught on the UC Berkeley campus.
The Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math-Science Program are federally funded educational outreach programs serving high school students who are low-income and first-generation-to-college (LIFG). The academic component of the summer programs focuses on social justice, college preparation, and project-based learning. Our motto this year is, 'The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.' (Martin Luther King Jr.) We feel this quote captures our pedagogical aims: leading and guiding our students to become critically aware of their learning environments and how that shapes their pursuit to education.
The UB/UBMS Summer Residential Program provides a select group of nearly 120 students from California, Hawaii and Nevada the opportunity to live in student residence halls and take classes on the UC Berkeley Campus. Students also engage in exciting enrichment activities, academic and college-preparation workshops, and academic field trips. Instruction will take place Monday - Thursday during the day or the evening, contingent upon classroom availability on the UC Berkeley campus.
