Adjunct Assistant/Associate/Professor (Open Rank): Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Program: EDUC 673 | University of Southern California (USC) - Military Veterans

at HERC - Southern California

Los Angeles, California

The mission of the USC Rossier School of Education is to prepare leaders to achieve educational equity through practice, research and policy. We work to improve learning opportunities and outcomes in urban settings and to address disparities that affect historically marginalized groups. We teach our students to value and respect the cultural context of the communities in which they work and to interrogate the systems of power that shape policies and practices. Through innovative thinking and research, we strive to solve the most intractable educational problems. The MAT Program is seeking an instructor/student-teaching supervisor in teacher education combined with English methods and student-teaching courses to teach EDUC 673-  English - Applications of Curriculum and Pedagogy, Part A . The course is designed for candidates to apply content knowledge of ELA using pedagogical approaches that promote complex, rigorous, and appropriately challenging learning. The courseâ??s goals are to facilitate teacher candidatesâ?? pedagogical approaches to engage secondary students in dialogic discussion, culturally situated skills development, problem-posing inquiry, and other competencies in ELA. The goal is for candidates to develop a practice that enables learners to become collaborative and independent problem-solvers, as well as critical and creative thinkers. Antiracist pedagogy reframes Eurocentric approaches to planning, teaching, and assessing to include and value Black, Indigenous, and People of Colorâ??s (BIPOC) perspectives and knowledge. Instructors are expected to engage teacher-candidates in planning curriculum and lessons, enacting practice to realize the USC Rossier Mission Statement, assessing students for equity, and engaging in critical reflective practice to deepen understanding of the relationship between teaching and learning. The course meets weekly for 2.5 hours of instruction in curriculum and pedagogy for secondary Language Arts (ELA) teacher-candidates. In addition to the weekly course meetings and other expected duties of teaching a graduate course, instructors: meet weekly for one hour in a course meeting to collaborate in alignment across all sections of the courses, view teacher-candidates classroom videos (as their student-teacher fieldwork supervisor) to provide guidance for more effective pedagogy aligned with the course goals (see above) and USC Rossierâ??s Mission Statement, communicate regularly with teacher-candidates via email, zoom meetings, and phone, assess teacher-candidates assignments, communicate and meet with teacher-candidates fieldwork teachers (guiding teachers) a minimum of three times over the course of the semester. Adjunct Faculty: USC reserves the â??Adjunct Facultyâ?? appointment for faculty teaching less than full-time at USC, who are employed full-time in a primary profession or career elsewhere. Adjunct faculty may teach one class each semester (summer, fall and spring). USC is an equal-opportunity educator and employer, proudly pluralistic and firmly committed to providing equal opportunity for outstanding persons of every race, gender, creed and background. The university particularly encourages members of underrepresented groups, veterans and individuals with disabilities to apply. USC will make reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals with known disabilities unless doing so would result in an undue hardship.
