Three new calls for City Studies teaching artists

Three new calls for _City Studies_ teaching artists

CUP has three open calls for City Studies teaching artist positions in the spring of 2014.

CUP’s project-based curricula enable students to explore fundamental questions about how the city works through collaborative research and design. 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.

We’re seeking a teaching artist to design and implement a 10-hour in-class project for high school students at the Academy of Urban Planning in Bushwick, Brooklyn.

This project will be part of a mixed grade English as a Second Language beginner’s class, and will investigate their own neighborhood. The teaching artist would help to develop a curriculum that would give the group the motivation and opportunity to speak English in real life situations.
