Urban Academy: Opening for Literature Teacher
Urban Academy High School has an opening for a literature teacher to begin in the fall of 2019.
Urban Academy is a small, NYC public high school serving a diverse group of students from all over the city. We are a member of the NY Performance Standards Consortium and have been granted a Regents waiver from the NY State Education Department, which allows us to use Performance Based Assessments as graduation requirements instead of Regents Exams.

Our literature classes focus on textual analysis. Students learn to use the assigned texts to support an argument. Teachers design their own courses and students are given a great deal of choice in which courses they take. Courses are mixed grade.

We are looking for candidates who are interested in designing hands-on curriculum and interested in collaborating with the rest of the faculty in many aspects of the running of the school.
Applicants must be licensed and certified teachers in English. Those with an ENL extension are especially encouraged to apply. Please send resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line"English Position."
