Beloit College - Positions in Teaching Arabic
Summer Teaching Positions in Arabic
June 10 - August 7, 2009
Senior instructors and graduate teaching assistants are needed for Beloit College’s summer intensive Arabic program (June 10 - August 7, 2009). In 2009, we expect to offer first- through third-year Arabic. Each level, with enrollments of ten students, has one instructor and one graduate teaching assistant. Instructors collaborate with each other, the language coordinator, and the CLS director on curriculum, syllabi, and instruction. Duties include classroom teaching and evaluation, and assistance with organizing cultural activities for the program. Instructors will be expected to live on campus (single occupancy), share lunch and dinner with the students in the dining commons, and be available to students evenings and weekends.
Minimum qualifications for senior instructors include an M.A., teaching experience preferably in an immersion environment, native or near-native proficiency in Arabic, and advanced proficiency in English. An advanced degree in Arabic, applied linguistics, or foreign language education is desirable. For graduate teaching assistants, an M.A. in progress is required. Salary is competitive, and includes room and board. Employment is contingent upon new employees providing documents verifying U.S. citizenship or, for non-citizens, documents verifying legal permission to work in the United States.
Send letter of application, curriculum vitae, and list of three references to Patricia L. Zody, Center for Language Studies, Beloit College, 700 College Street, Beloit WI 53511. Applications will not be accepted by e-mail. Review of applications will begin on October 31, 2008, and will continue until positions are filled.
