Adjunct Teaching Opportunity At College Of Staten Island Cuny
FALL 2013 ADJUNCT TEACHING OPPORTUNITY AT COLLEGE OF STATEN ISLAND CUNY
HST 260, U.S. History, First Encounters to the Present (4 hours; 4 credits). Meets on Saturday mornings from 9:05am-12:20 pm (first class meeting Saturday August 31, 2013).
Course catalog description: “A one semester survey of the United States History. While designed to contribute to the liberal arts general education of CSI students and to the training of history majors, the course will be especially valuable to students intending careers as elementary and middle school social studies teachers, since it is based on the content and skills required of elementary and middle school social studies teachers in New York City and State. Students will collect primary and secondary materials in each of the time periods covered in the elementary school curriculum, including time-lines and maps, and New York State, City, and Staten Island historical materials, thus assembling a portfolio to be used in their social studies classrooms. Emphasis will be on the skills students will foster in their own work as elementary school teachers: thinking, research and writing, interpersonal and group relations, sequencing and chronology, map and globe, and graph and image analytic skills. For history majors and minors, this is designated as a United States History course. (social science) NOTE: Students majoring in SLS must take this course in order to satisfy the social science 200 level requirement.”
Sections of HST 260 are taught in close coordination by a ‘cohort’ of instructors, coordinated by Prof. Zara Anishanslin. Sample syllabi and assignments can be sent to interested candidates upon request.
Qualified candidates should have a minimum of a Master’s Degree in History, American Studies, or a related academic field, and have suitable teaching experience.
