Teacher English Teacher

The CUBE School
 Denver, Denver County, Colorado, United States

Job Description

Who are we?

The CUBE is a high school opening in August 2019 serving an intentionally diverse student body.  We will open with a ninth grade and build out, one grade per year, to a full 9-12 high school.   We teach most of our courses as topic-based, six-week, co-taught, interdisciplinary classes.   Our innovative teaching method prepares learners to achieve at the highest academic levels, while also learning to think deeply, solve challenges, and practice creativity with compassion and empathy. When students graduate from our school, they not only have a solid foundation of knowledge, they also have the hands-on skills and the ability to convey their learning that will allow them to excel in their future.

The success of this model depends on passionate teachers who love working with kids. We aim to teach knowledge and passion, skills and character. And that means that we, as a staff, are knowledgable, passionate, skilled, and character-driven. It means that we love the subject we teach, and it means we love integrating it into the fabric of other content areas as well. It means we look for the biology in pizza-making, the physics in mountain biking, and the literary references in TV shows. Our staff members continually ask themselves the question, “what’s best for kids?”

What are we looking for?

The CUBE is looking for a language arts teacher who shares our belief that learning happens everywhere.  Reading happens everywhere.  Writing happens everywhere.  Speaking and listening happen everywhere.  The CUBE is committed to building a curriculum that fosters connections among disciplines and interdisciplinary fields, and it is through language that we seek to move past fragmented learning and towards connection-making. Rather than teaching English or Literature in a content silo, the CUBE offers topic-based contextualized Mash-ups in which students are engaged in making meaning through a dynamic process of questioning, problem posing and solving, and critical thinking.  The following areas of study are synthesized and enhanced through the Project-Based Learning approach:  classic and modern literature; social studies, science, creative and academic writing; and public speaking.
