Lawrence Academy has an opening for a full-time history teacher beginning in August, 2019.
The student-centered history curriculum at Lawrence Academy encourages students to do the work of historians. This means they learn to recreate and understand the events in their original context and try to grapple with the historical issues, questions, and decisions of the time period being studied. Candidates must teach students how to use primary source documents, distinguish between fact and opinion, appreciate perspective and point of view, collect and use evidence, and craft effective analytical pieces. Candidates must have a history or history-related background and classroom experience. The ideal candidate will have the ability to teach throughout the history curriculum. Candidates must have a strong academic background and experience working with adolescents in an academic setting is required.
In addition to teaching responsibilities, faculty members are fully involved in the curricular, co-curricular (primarily athletics), and extracurricular programs at the school. Interested candidates should expect to live in a dormitory, but on-campus (non-dorm) or off-campus housing might be an available alternative. All members of the faculty are part of our residential program and have a regular weeknight duty and some weekend duties. For more information about Lawrence Academy, go to www.lacademy.edu.

Candidates from traditionally underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply. Lawrence Academy is interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through their teaching, coaching, advising, and/or residential responsibilities.
