My name is Melanie Pruit, and am an instructional specialist for Richland Collegiate High School on the Richland College campus in Dallas, TX. A friend of mine at UTD referred me to you. I have an instructional opportunity for an online research methodologies class beginning in January 2018. I thought you might be able to spread the word to any graduate students with a strong background in humanities, especially as that involves writing. Someone with teaching experience is definitely preferred. To clarify, the class is online, the curriculum is already developed, and the target student population would be 11th graders who are concurrently taking college classes. A bachelor degree is required.
If you know, or think you might know, someone who would be interested and could be a suitable candidate, please let me know or have that someone contact me at this email address.
Thanks for your consideration,

After graduation, how will you launch a high-impact career in Nevada?
Historically, high-need students in Nevada have not had equal access to an education that adequately prepares them for college and career. Nevada Teacher Corps trains recent college graduates to become exceptional, certified elementary school teachers. Our fast-paced seven-week summer training program focuses on the essential skills, knowledge, and mindsets that teachers need most to start strong. Fellows will repeatedly practice foundational classroom management and instructional techniques, receive direct feedback from skilled coaches, and must pass a series of evaluations to be eligible to start teaching in the fall.

Apply here – our application deadline is November 6th.

The Department of English seeks qualified individuals for its Lecturer Pool and welcomes applicants at any time. This posting is for the Fall 2017, Spring 2018, and Summer 2018 semesters.
The specific courses involved may vary from semester to semester and openings to teach these courses develop on a periodic basis, depending on departmental teaching needs. The anticipated need is for Lecturers to teach courses that may include: Composition I & II; Sophomore Literature; Tech Writing; Literature Survey Courses in American or British Literature; and upper-division Tech Writing courses.
Candidates should have the terminal degree or equivalent experience in the appropriate field of instruction, whether that be Rhetoric & Composition, English, or Technical and Professional Communication. For the Technical Writing classes, candidates must have the terminal degree, or at least 18 hours of graduate work in Technical & Professional Writing. Candidates with extensive technical writing experience in the business world, but without the graduate work in the field, are welcome to apply. Experience with completely online teaching is a bonus, and be sure to mention that in your introductory contact information.
Please send your CV to Dr. Bruce Krajewski, Chair & Professor, Department of English at the University of Texas at Arlington.

I. Guest Curator for an exhibit honoring the 30th anniversary of the Names Project AIDS Memorial Quilt from The University of North Texas Libraries special collections. Though this is an unpaid position, it will provide some excellent experience. It is time sensitive, as the bulk of the work needs to be completed within the next month and a half (following a recent departure of the former curator). The contact person for this is Agatha Beins of Texas Woman’s University at ABeins@twu.edu.
More from the UNT job description: The guest curator’s essential duties are to pull together research surrounding the exhibit topic, being the Dallas AIDS/HIV crisis and the NAMES Project Foundation (this year marks the 30thanniversary of the initial display of the quilt on the National Mall), in order to create text for the exhibit, as well as help select items to display in the exhibit. In our collections, we hold many collections related to the Dallas LGBT community, and most helpful with this exhibit will be the Resource Center Collection and the Dallas Metroplex Chapter of the NAMES Project Foundation Collection. The text and object selection for the exhibit should go hand in hand to tell a story of the AIDS/HIV crisis in Dallas. Someone from UNT will help to facilitate research, edit text, and select objects, so the guest curator would not have to invest too much time onsite, but they would have to invest some time in the library’s reading room to look through the collections. Once the text and object selection are finalized, UNT will work to create the physical and online exhibits. The guest curator would also be invited to present a lecture about the exhibit and their research, as part of our standard lecture/reception event that we hold each semester, though this is not required.
II. Part-time instructor at Northstar School (private, nonprofit, located in south Arlington). Amanda Guidotti <firstname.lastname@example.org> is the assistant director there, and says it would be a great option for someone working on a dissertation and in need of partial funding.
Here’s her description: Northstar School is seeking a qualified instructor to teach lower school History – one section each of Ancient and Medieval – and upper school History (one section of World). Our classes are very small, with less than ten students per class, and instructors have the freedom to craft their own curriculum. A formal teaching certificate is not required but passion and expertise in your field is a must!
It is a part-time position requiring roughly 4 hours/week in the classroom for each class. Interested parties can submit a resume and cover letter to email@example.com and learn more about the school at www.nsschool.org (although our website is currently under construction).
The History Department at Collin College (Spring Creek Campus, Plano) is seeking part-time instructors for the Fall 2017 term. The qualified candidate will hold an MA/PhD in History or Humanities with 18 hours in History. Collin College serves a diverse and talented student population, and we hold classes at our main campuses and at our dual credit high school locations.
If you would like to work with our students and teach at the college level, please submit an application for “PT – Associate Faculty – History” via CougarHR: http://www.collin.edu/hr/employment After you apply, please contact Dr. Scott Cheney, Interim Associate Dean of Academic Affairs: firstname.lastname@example.org or 972.578.5586.
