2016 January Science Teaching Opportunities
The Science Teaching Fellowship and the Interterm High School Science Teaching Internship give Smith undergraduate STEM majors, opportunities to try teaching science in a local school over the January break. The Fellowship program places up to ten fellows in grades k-8 in a range of science disciplines, and the internship program places up to ten undergraduates in Northampton High School biology classes to teach an established lesson. Participants in both programs will complete a 4-session series of classes in October and November, Thursday evenings, to prepare for their teaching assignments.
There is a common application for both teaching opportunities here. The deadline for completed applications is October 2. If you have Fellowship questions, contact Tom Gralinski, Sabin Reed 130 or Wright Hall 020. If you have Internship questions, contact Lou Ann Bierwert, Ford Hall 112.
The Gloria and Wilma School for Organizers
The Gloria and Wilma School for Organizers brings some 50 activists from around the US together at Smith College to explore the potential of using history as a tool to strengthen social justice movements. The School launches the two-year Steinem Initiative, which will "put history into action" by weaving evidence of our foremothers' insights and experiences into current activist work and future movement strategy.
