Job Description

Uncommon Middle School History teachers work in grade level teams and departments to push students towards being self-guided learners. Our teachers develop subject mastery and have a keen sense of the socio-emotional changes middle school students experience. History classes aim to empower students' voices and develop them into global citizens by emphasizing textual analysis, analytical writing, and discourse. Teachers also use engaging instructional strategies to make history come alive! At the conclusion of eighth grade, students are prepared for the academic autonomy and college preparatory focus of our high schools.


1.     Instruction

You'll facilitate student-led discourse of historical topics, where students grapple with open-ended guiding questions, engage in peer-to-peer debate, and synthesize arguments.

You'll guide students to understand the author's claim and the power of sourcing while developing the skills of argumentation, corroboration, inquiry, and historiography through primary and secondary source analysis.

You'll teach an in-house curriculum that prioritizes the diverse histories of Indigenous peoples, African Americans, women, ancient cultures, and the impact all of these groups have had on the development of the United States.

You'll build an inclusive and safe environment where students are empowered to use their voices to express evidence-based opinions and perspectives.

2.     Data Analysis

You'll meet weekly with your principal and/or instructional coach to analyze and respond to trends in student work samples and assessments.

You'll learn and implement strategies to differentiate instruction for all learners in your classroom.

3.     School Culture

You’ll build positive relationships with students to ensure they feel seen, loved, and heard.

You’ll partner with students’ families to ensure appropriate resources are available to support their child's learning needs.

You'll engage in practice-based professional development, mentorship, and coaching sessions.

You'll participate in weekly, school-wide meetings to cultivate community, model our core values, and encourage student achievement.

You'll partner with your grade level team to develop academic goals and practice instructional strategies
