549 Audubon Ave, T30
Earn a $125,000 salary and join a team of master teachers at The Equity Project (TEP) Charter School, featured in the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and on 60 minutes for its revolutionary teacher salaries and its outstanding results.
Middle School ELA teachers at TEP inspire students with theme-based, close-reading units that incorporate novels, non-fiction texts, and poetry. Independent reading is emphasized throughout the school - with robust classroom libraries in all subject areas (from ELA to Science to Music). Writing instruction is focused around developing 3 long form essays per year (one per trimester), two argumentative pieces that respond to literary or nonfiction texts or topics and one narrative piece. ELA teachers teach their students for 90 minutes per day, which consists of one reading-focused period and one writing-focused period. There are typically 3 ELA teachers per grade-level; this allows each ELA teacher to focus on a smaller subset of students on the grade and gives time for individualized feedback.
Qualifications: This position requires a minimum of 3 years of lead teaching experience, at least 2 of which must have been in 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th or 9th grade classrooms.
