iCivics seeks a master educator to join a small team on a big mission: to revolutionize the way students learn about American government and civil society. As we plan to substantially enhance and expand our curriculum offering, we need a one-in-a-million social studies educator – someone who is both a gifted writer and an engaging teacher, and who is just as passionate about civics as we are.
As a Curriculum Associate, you will join the iCivics Curriculum Team to develop new content for our ever-growing middle and high school curriculum. To thrive in this demanding position, you must be a top-notch writer with an excellent command of the English language—but you must be able to translate complex ideas into middle- and high-school-friendly language using an engaging, conversational tone. You’ll also need to be full of creative ideas for developing learning activities and other curriculum resources, based on your experience in education. Finally, you’ll need to be both self-motivated and able to work well with a team that always has so much to do in so little time.
This is a full-time position. We offer a competitive salary and benefits package.
Please send resume, cover letter, and a curricular writing sample, such as a lesson plan, student reading, or other instructional resource to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your last name and the job title in the subject line of your email.
Unfortunately, due to the volume of application packages we receive, we are not able to make personal contact with individuals who are not going to be invited in for interviews.
If you are selected for an interview, we will contact you to schedule a convenient date and time.
This position will be located at iCivics’ main office, which is located in the Inman Square area of Cambridge, MA.
