Instructional Support 2018 Standards Training Facilitator, K-12 ELA & Math + Leadership

Instruction Partners
 Indianapolis, Indiana, United States

Job Description

This is a contract position requiring three in-person days in the spring (as well as roughly 10 hours of virtual work) and is based in Indianapolis, IN.

The application deadline is January 26, 2018.

 

Who We Are:

Instruction Partners is a team of educators guided by a simple belief: you should be able to walk into any classroom and see every student engaged in the kind of challenging, inspiring, and supportive learning that will open doors and help them reach their potential. We believe this vision can be a reality for every child, in every classroom, in every school, in every district.

 

What We Do:

We believe if we can unlock the practical actions that have powered student growth and translate it into effective support for educators, we can get better faster, together, and make every classroom a place of great learning that prepares students for successful, rewarding lives. We do this by working shoulder-to-shoulder with teachers and leaders to improve the quality of instruction in core academics. Specializing in small schools and districts, we work in two ways: through partnerships with districts and schools to assess and pursue options for instructional improvement, and by providing teachers and leaders with targeted support to solve the real-world instructional challenges they face in their classrooms.

 

Position Description:

This spring, Instruction Partners is launching a three-part training series on the Indiana standards and instructional shifts. The goal of this training is to build Indianapolis instructional leaders’ understanding of the standards and underlying content to ensure students consistently receive rigorous instruction.

We are looking for local Indianapolis practitioners to help co-facilitate each of the five tracks we plan on offering: K-5 Math, 6-12 Math, K-5 ELA, 6-12 ELA, and a CAO/Leadership track.

We are seeking current educators, ideally classroom teachers or instructional coaches, with experience in leading professional development or other learning experiences for adults. We are looking for candidates who know their content deeply, have a strong command and understanding of the rigor and expectations of the standards, and are passionate about helping other educators.

 

Responsibilities:

  • Facilitate professional development sessions for three days from February-April 2018
  • Participate in three one-hour training sessions in preparation for facilitation
  • Review predesigned training materials, including PowerPoints, facilitator notes, and digital and print participant materials

 

Candidate Qualifications and Traits:

  • 3+ years of experience as a teacher, with a record of success achieving clearly-defined outcomes and improving student learning
  • 3+ years as an instructional coach or content developer, with a record of success achieving clearly-defined outcomes and improving student learning
  • Experience leading adult learning experiences
  • Passion for supporting teachers through building their knowledge of the standards and shifts
  • Deep belief in the ability of all students to meet high expectations
  • Deep knowledge of content and pedagogy in candidates’ chosen track
  • Deep understanding of the rigorous academic standards, assessments, and instructional implications
  • Detail orientation, organization, and follow-through
