Description of Duties:

Founded in 1980, the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics is a state-supported residential and online high school for students who have demonstrated exceptional talent or interest in science, mathematics, engineering, and technology. Since the school’s inception, the humanities and fine arts have been an integral part of an NCSSM education and have played a key role in helping the institution fulfill its mission to cultivate a new generation of informed, empathetic, engaged, and ethical citizens and leaders. Languages currently offered at NCSSM-Morganton are Arabic, French, and Spanish. To expand and enhance our curricular offerings, we are currently seeking an Instructor of Chinese.

The position is a full-time, ten-month appointment in the Department of Humanities at the NCSSM-Morganton campus, with full benefits through the state of North Carolina. The position reports to the Chair of Humanities, NCSSM-Morganton, and is responsible for providing instruction in Chinese.

The expected teaching assignment is three course sections per semester. Successful candidates will be able to teach a range of courses in Mandarin Chinese, from introductory through advanced levels of the language, using the communicative approach, and will be able to develop multi-level, proficiency-based curricula that provide entry points for students of various proficiencies, including heritage speakers. We look favorably upon a diversity of experience, interests, and background preparation, given that our humanities course offerings include not only World Languages but also American Studies (the core humanities experience for all NCSSM juniors) and a wide range of senior-level cultural studies courses, including African Studies, Asian Studies, Latin American Studies, Western European Cultural Studies, Modern World Fiction, Digital Humanities, Critical Race Theory, Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, Southern Studies, and Literature and Philosophy of the Twentieth Century. Offerings in our Fine Arts program include studio and performance courses in the visual arts, music, and drama. Our program also includes student- and faculty-led seminars and independent studies.

Humanities faculty are responsible for developing and teaching innovative and engaging humanities curricula, with a focus on interdisciplinary studies, in NCSSM’s residential and highly interactive online programs. Faculty should plan on playing an enthusiastic role with colleagues across all campuses of the school in ongoing conversations and collaborations about ideas, goals, pedagogical methods, and authentic assessments in NCSSM’s teaching and learning environment.

Other Responsibilities Include:

Develop and communicate to students clear course objectives and goals;
Plan and develop an instructional program that helps students assimilate specific course content and skills;
Hold office hours and tutorial sessions as outlined by the Department of Humanities;
Regularly monitor and evaluate students’ progress, providing them with resources and feedback on their performance;
Structure and manage an environment conducive to learning;
Model for students responsibility to self and others;
Follow the school’s philosophy, policies, and procedures;
Participate in departmental, faculty, and staff meetings;
Serve on departmental, faculty, and school-wide standing committees;
Write recommendations for as many as 15 students each year, as requested;
Serve as a January-Term sponsor;
Participate in professional development and personal intellectual growth activities;
Participate in one or more of the following activities:
– Provide professional service and engagement in the field;
– Assist students with special projects, independent and individual study, and seminar-based studies;
– Participate in the NCSSM admissions process by recruiting, selecting, and advising prospective students;
– Participate in NCSSM alumni activities;
– Provide assistance for school-sponsored programs and extracurricular activities.

Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:

Applicants should demonstrate a deep understanding of the language and its cultural and historical contexts, a passion for teaching and learning, and a love of ideas, combined with a commitment to serving as mentor and guide for students — both in the classroom and in extracurricular activities. Applicants should be able and willing to use appropriate educational technology to engage students in learning, in both face-to-face and remote settings. Applicants should be dedicated to continual growth, both as teachers and learners. Since all NCSSM faculty and staff are expected to support the intellectual, cultural, emotional, and social growth of students — responsibilities that transcend a traditional high school or college teaching schedule — applicants should bring to the work a keen commitment to participating actively in the multi-dimensional life of the NCSSM community.

Minimum Education and Experience:

A Master’s degree in Chinese or a Master’s degree in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language, or an advanced degree in another relevant field, with a proven track record as an effective and inspiring instructor of Chinese in a proficiency-based, communicative-focused language program.

Desired:

Familiarity with the ACTFL World-Readiness Statements for Learning Languages, Can-Do Statements, and OPI Proficiency Guidelines. Ability to work collaboratively with colleagues to identify students’ needs and develop engaging, practical, and informative courses. Experience and expertise in effective uses of instructional technology. Excellent organizational and collaboration skills. Experience and expertise in working with advanced high school or undergraduate students in the novice, intermediate, and advanced levels of the language and in individualizing instruction to accommodate the range of students’ proficiencies at each level. Interest and ability to develop and teach high-interest topics-based courses that are taught in the target language and grounded in authentic materials.

The ideal candidate will be eager to participate fully in the wide variety of academic and cultural endeavors our school values, offers, and promotes. An exciting feature of NCSSM’s academic calendar is “January-Term,” consisting of two two-week sessions when faculty members lead intensive learning experiences both on and off campus. The ideal candidate will have the interest and ability to develop and lead these sessions on specialized topics that will appeal to NCSSM students. We also offer opportunities for students to travel domestically and abroad during this period; as such, experience in leading student travel groups and/or the willingness to do so is a definite plus.

DEPARTMENT OF CHINESE AND BILINGUAL STUDIES

Professor / Associate Professor in Bilingualism and Communication (Ref. 22042218)

The Department of Chinese and Bilingual Studies (CBS) is one of the constituent departments of the Faculty of Humanities. One of the core missions of CBS is to promote and develop studies of Chinese in multilingual contexts and studies of multilingualism and multiculturalism in Chinese contexts. With over 40 full-time academic and teaching staff members, CBS is a vibrant center for research in the areas of Chinese linguistics, corpus linguistics, language and communication disorders, cognitive neuroscience, bilingual communication, Chinese language education, Chinese language testing, language technology, and translation and interpreting. The Department is also devoted to offering high-quality education programmes at different levels (bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral) in Bilingual Corporate Communication, Chinese Linguistics, Chinese Language Teaching, Speech Therapy, Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language, Translating and Interpreting, as well as Korean/Japanese language and culture courses at bachelor’s level. Within the Department, there is a PolyU-PekingU Research Centre on Chinese Linguistics, a Speech Therapy Unit, a Research Centre for Language, Cognition, and Neuroscience, and a Centre for Translation Studies. More information about the Department may be found at http://www.cbs.polyu.edu.hk/.

Saint Ann’s School (PreK-12, www.saintannsny.org) is a non-religious independent school in Brooklyn, NY seeing a Chinese teacher for a full-time position. We seek someone who is both a passionate teacher and learned scholar, someone thrilled to share that passion with students ranging from grades 7-12, and aims to teach in a flexible, creative environment. Teachers at Saint Ann’s enjoy a great deal of freedom in the classroom and are encouraged to introduce their own scholarly interests to their students within the parameters of the curriculum.

Saint Ann’s teachers are committed to working with students from various backgrounds. Applicants must be committed to meeting students’ individual needs, and also invested in advancing the school’s DEI work, which includes continuous scrutiny of texts, program design, and pedagogical practices, adapting to what the students present in a given moment and over time.

We do not give grades. Instead, twice a year teachers write full-page reports on each student’s progress. This is a big task and not for a reluctant writer, but teachers who invest in our written reports find such descriptions more fruitful and productive than grades. An equitable and individualized approach to evaluating students is expected.

Extensive knowledge in Chinese language, literature, and culture is required, though significant self-study is taken as seriously as advanced degrees. Some experience working with children is helpful, though teaching experience is not a requirement.

The lives of our graduates speak powerfully to the potential of an education based on these principles to ignite a love of learning and sustain creative energy in every field of endeavor. We accomplish this by bringing together talented teachers with creative and motivated students. Seeking to create a community rooted in trust and equity, we invite each other to take risks, pursue knowledge, and celebrate growth. Recently, Saint Ann’s has made a commitment to centering anti-racism in the life of the school.
