The Institute for Education Policy (IEP) within School of Education has developed tools to analyze Social Studies curriculum in terms of the knowledge it offers students, both about the world and about human psychology and the human condition. We conduct this analysis by "mapping" the knowledge domains that are implicit in the selection of the texts to be read. This mapping enables policymakers to see not only the domains of knowledge that are opened up in the reading - and others that are missed - but also to what degree, over what grade span. This is a one-of-a-kind instrument. The Institute is currently in the process of building a database to house information about each text. In the coming months, the process of evaluation should therefore become easier.
SPECIAL NOTE: Multiple positions are available and this position is not benefits-eligible.
Specific Duties & Responsibilities:
Responsibilities require in-depth reviews of Social Studies curricula (either K-5 or grades 6-12), text by text, as follows:
Map every item in the designated grades using our database
Evaluate each item using Likert-scale scores on specific measures
Map the knowledge domains at each level by grade level and then across grade levels
Create a coverage report that illustrates the depth of emphasis a given domains receives across the grade levels
Minimum Qualifications (Mandatory):
2 years of related experience
Special Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:
Committed to a knowledge-based curriculum
Experienced in curriculum design
Have classroom experience in Social Studies
Have depth of knowledge of American, European, and World history
Specific knowledge about cultural relevance and/or the immigrant experience that will contribute not only to an individual evaluation, but also to the larger knowledge-mapping project as a whole, is a highly desirable plus
