Call for a teaching artist for project on homelessness

Call for a teaching artist for project on homelessness

We’re looking for a teaching artist to lead an Urban Investigation project for high school students in the summer of 2014.

CUP is seeking a teaching artist to lead an Urban Investigation in the summer of 2014. The teaching artist will work CUP and with high school students from Bronx public high schools to investigate the question “Who decides where homeless people go?”

Urban Investigations are the flagship program of CUP’s youth education work. They are intense project-based curricula that enable students to explore fundamental questions about how the city works through collaborative research and design.

Each Urban Investigation begins with a key question about the city. To find answers, students go beyond standard classroom learning and engage in rigorous field research, visiting real sites, and interviewing decision-makers and stakeholders. Students then collaborate with the teaching artist to produce innovative, engaging works in a variety of media. These projects are taken up by neighborhood organizations and advocacy groups and used to educate others.

Call for teaching artist for Urban Investigation on homeless shelters| Hostos Community College | Bronx

The Urban Investigation will take place in July and August, Mondays through Thursdays from 9 am to 3 pm. The position pays a project stipend of $7000.

Students will investigate “who decides where homeless people go?” Classes will meet at Hostos Community College in the Bronx. The group will also travel throughout the city for interviews.

CUP teaching artists work with CUP staff to develop course ideas, schedules, and lesson plans. Teaching artists are responsible for training students in research and documentation skills, taking students on site visits, and shaping and managing the execution of the final product. There is a separate budget for materials and other project costs.

There is the possibility that this teaching artist position could lead to an adjunct teaching position at Hostos Community College in digital design for the fall semester.

Applications are due by email Wednesday, February 26th at 10 pm
