Some knowledge of the Central European region and history is highly beneficial as is the experience in curriculum planning and development.
Students in Years 1, 2 and 3 (aged 15-18) study English Writing and Rhetoric as part of our unique LEAF Academy curriculum. We are looking for someone to take them on the journey from forming more complex sentences to a good argumentative paragraph, all the way to different types of essays and individual research. They continue their English path either by taking AP English Composition or AP English Literature.
We consider ourselves to be a community of learners where the learning happens for all parties concerned. Our lessons are student-centred and focus on developing students’ own thinking strategies and quality questioning. We use visible thinking techniques and other innovative teaching approaches that allow adaptation to different students’ needs. Learners focus on their individual growth that is recorded in an assessment that stems from competency-based rubrics. Students are encouraged to reflect on their work as well as the work of the teacher and to make connections to real life.
