Call for teaching artist for a City Studies class on the lottery

Call for teaching artist for a City Studies class on the lottery

We’re seeking a teaching artist to design and implement a 15-session project for high school students at the Bushwick School for Social Justice.

 

This project is part of a multi-year project funded through a grant from the National Science Foundation. CUP is creating curricula using the city as a tool to teach math skills. We are collaborating with MIT and Brooklyn College to develop the curricula, pilot test them at two New York City public high schools, and create educator’s guides for the curricula.

CUP’s project-based curricula enable students to explore fundamental questions about how the city works through collaborative research and design.The first of two curricula, this project will take place in a 10th grade advisory class and will investigate New York’s lottery system. The class will meet in April, 2013, five times a week for three weeks. The class period is from from 10:45 am to 11:30 am. Planning begins immediately, and represents a substantial time commitment. We’re looking for a teaching artist who is enthusiastic about math and very dedicated to collaboratively designing a curriculum with an exciting group of project partners.

CUP teaching artists/designers work with CUP staff and project partners to develop course ideas, schedules, lesson plans, and to document the project. Teaching artists produce a designed final product in collaboration with the students and CUP. The teaching artist will be paid $4050, and there is a separate budget for materials and other project costs.

Applications must be received by Monday, November 26, at 5 pm.

Instructions for applicants:

Please submit a cover letter, a resume, contact information for two references, and a work sample with up to five images of what you consider to be your strongest visual work (not your students’ work). Send materials via email to info@welcometocup.org by Monday, November 26, at 5 pm.

Please send all material as a single PDF. For audio or video work samples, please provide a link. Please use “[YourLastName_YourFirstName] Teaching Artist” to label your PDF and as your email subject line.

No calls please. 

Please address the following in your cover letter:

Why are you interested in this position?

Why are you interested in the topic?

What art and design media are you comfortable working in?

What experience do you have working with high school students, and why do you want to work with high school students?
