Do you have experience working with K-8 kids? Are you a scholar of science and math history? 

We are searching for an individual to deliver our rich compendium of math and science curriculum to a small group of students in the San Francisco Bay Area and to write lesson plan units based on the micro-school teaching. 

The role will require 8 to 12 hours per week of teaching in Palo Alto and the rest is curriculum edit, design, and format. 

The primary thrusts: Devise learning objectives for students, deliver the content, run exciting labs, make evaluations based on a portfolio of work, work with the students to drive deep comprehension of great math and science concepts, write lesson plan units.

The overarching goal: Facilitate engaging, challenge-based science and math programs, with experiments and projects that lead to a meaningful understanding of the world.

At QuantumCamp, we build curriculum by contemplating how scientists and mathematicians truly acquire knowledge and advance their field. What experiments and activities are necessary to discover a new idea? This is the question that drives our curriculum design.

Quite naturally then, the experience of students is supremely authentic; they are discovering profound science and math ideas, about which most educators lecture. They come to own these ideas for themselves and in turn, confidence and engagement spring forth. 

SPECIFIC ROLES


  1. Lead learning groups of 2-5 students around the Bay Area.

  2. Develop customized learning plans, tethered to the standards, for each individual student.

  3. Thoroughly prepare for and deliver amazing math and science lessons on a weekly basis to several groups of students. 

  4. Write detailed evaluation reports based on learning objectives established in the learning plans.

  5. Send weekly reports to students and families.

  6. Contribute to making an educational and societal impact in the United States and beyond as more individuals and groups incorporate QC’s math and science curriculum modules. 

EXPECTATIONS AND ATTRIBUTES


  • You love science, math, and kids! You are commanding, knowledgeable, and energetic. You have experience in the classroom. You are continually seeking to design better labs and better explanations. You are highly organized and have reverence for the impact of the classroom environment on learning. 

  • You are compelled to help students with their academic, social, and emotional growth, and have the skills and experience to keep your classroom focused on learning with minimal distractions. 

CONSIDERATIONS


  • Your science acumen permits you to discuss and run experiments, like the photoelectric effect, which enables you to run an experiment based course on the origin of the Bohr Model of the atom.

  • You believe 10-year-olds can learn calculus.

  • You know elementary, middle school, and high school students can and should be tracking the process of doing science along with actually doing the science.

  • You are at home working with 6 year olds struggling with the concept of the negative side of the number line. You empathize with the fact that negative numbers are an intriguing human concept!

  • You know 8, 9, and 10 year olds can and should be doing advanced experiments in zoology, botany, electricity, and chemistry.

  • You would like to facilitate an intuitive discovery of the laws of motion for 6 and 7 year olds.

  • You know and appreciate NGSS and Common Core. 

REQUIRED EXPERIENCE


  1. You are educated on various pedagogies and learning models - Montessori, social constructivism, flipped classroom, etc. 

  2. You are highly organized and meet deadlines.

  3. 1+ years experience working with groups of students between 1st and 12th grade, in either conventional or alternative education formats 

COMPENSATION 

Very competitive rate dependent on experience.

APPLICATION PROCESS

CALIFORNIA magazine is seeking full-time interns to work on our award-winning quarterly print publication and general interest website starting in August 2020. Are you enthusiastic about getting coffee?! Running errands?! Doing senseless busy work for no pay that won’t help your career in the future?!

That’s great! But do it on your own time, because it won’t happen when you’re a CALIFORNIA magazine intern.

Some might say we have a revolutionary perspective that an internship shouldn’t be a waste of time, that interns should do work that excites them, and that they should leave with clips and experience that will set them up for a career in journalism. And we’d like to think it works! Some of our past interns have gone on to write for such publications as the New York Times, L.A. Times, Mother Jones, Buzzfeed, Wired.com, and Nature.

That could be you someday. We want it to be you someday. 

CALIFORNIA is an editorially independent general interest mag that covers the news, issues, discoveries, and people of the University of California, Berkeley. The print magazine is published four times a year with a readership of 95,000, and the website posts fresh news every week.

As an intern, it’ll be your job to stay true to this mission whilst hunting down stories, juggling hectic deadlines, and otherwise writing your journalism-loving heart out!

WHAT YOU’LL DO:


  • Pitch, research and write stories for both the print and online mag

  • Interview sources, ask tough questions, be a bonafide professional reporter

  • Go out into the field to find stories worth writing about

  • Post finished pieces to the website using Drupal CMS

  • Transcribe interviews

  • Track down images/artwork and obtain permissions for them (and, if you’ve got the skills, shoot photos and make some artwork yourself)

  • Fact-check stories (call sources, track down documents, be ruthless in your pursuit of truth)

  • Edit and proof pages (sharpen those copy-editing skills)

  • Write headlines and story descriptions for print and online

  • Post stories to social media with catchy subtitles to pull readers in

  • Attend weekly editorial meetings to pitch stories and shoot the breeze with your new favorite editors

  • Learn writing fundamentals, tips and tricks of the trade from CALIFORNIA mag’s finest

  • Have fun!

QUALIFICATIONS: 


  • A sense of humor: We take our journalism very seriously, but usually not ourselves. It’s wisecracks galore up in the CALIFORNIA mag office. We joke. We make puns. We quip it—and quip it good. Come prepared to banter with the best of ‘em!

  • Proven ability to report and write things accurately, smartly, and concisely

  • Basic knowledge of HTML

  • Some social media knowhow (working knowledge of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram)

  • Basic photo editing skills (knowledge of Adobe Photoshop is a plus)

  • The talent to think critically and listen effectively

  • The ability to work cooperatively and independently (We’re here to guide you, but we also like to let our interns learn some things on the fly, and on their own)

  • A burning desire to master the magical art of journalism! 

The internship lasts three months with a monthly stipend of $800. If applicable (meaning that we think you do a great job and you like it here) there’s a possibility for the internship to be extended for another three months.If all of this sounds like your kind of thing…

APPLY: But no phone calls, please! Send your resume, cover letter, and three non-academic writing samples by email to californiamag@alumni.berkeley.edu with “editorial intern” in the subject. The samples don’t need to be published, but we ask that at least one of them demonstrate journalistic ability (research and reporting skills).
