Summer Science Instructor, Phila. Futures

Posted by Philadelphia Futures on April 5, 2022

Philadelphia Futures provides low-income, first-generation-to-college students with the necessary tools, resources, and opportunities for college admission and success. Our direct access programs, Sponsor-A-Scholar (SAS) and College Connection, provide academic enrichment, college guidance, and other services for promising high school students attending Philadelphia’s public, charter, and parochial high schools. Summer Institute is one of the programs that support a successful transition from high school to college for PF Students.

Summer Science Instructor position:

The program will be in-person in Summer 2022. The Science class/lab will be held from 10am-12pm on Fridays, July 8th, 15th, and 22nd. Each class will meet for 2 hours during the first three Fridays of the program. We will hire one instructor for one section of approximately 20-30 students who will concentrate on Biology, Chemistry, and Anatomy. The goal of the class is for the instructor to work with the students in their confidence and skill-building to prepare them for college science courses, using brief lessons and labs. The actual science content is less important than teaching skills for success in lab courses.

It is expected that both the instructor and the students will do work outside of class time, including providing virtual “office hours” during the four-week program.

Responsibilities include: The Science teacher’s responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Collaborating with Philadelphia Futures curriculum and academic specialists to develop, plan, and implement instruction designed to support preparation for college-level science courses.
  • Teaching students once a week in-person in Philadelphia. Content should be interactive and focus on skills for success in college science classes such as Biology, Chemistry, Anatomy & Physiology, etc.
  • Managing Google classroom, providing timely responses to student emails and requests for assistance.
  • Reporting to PF staff once a week on student attendance, assignment completion, and progress.
  • Grading and evaluating student work, including but not limited to submitting weekly and end-of-program reports.
