World History Teacher (Upper School)
St. Albans School of Washington, D.C., is seeking an Upper School world history teacher to begin in Fall 2019. The position involves teaching four sections of modern world history to either tenth or twelfth graders, a course that emphasizes the historical developments that contributed to the making of the modern world by examining such topics as exploration and global interactions, religious conflicts, nationalism and imperialism, revolutions both cultural and military, world wars and genocide, decolonization, and the themes and debates of modernization and globalization. Strong candidates will exhibit the ability to think about and articulate historical developments both large and small; awaken in students an understanding of the political, social, and intellectual intersections of people and culture; teach with imagination and vigor; develop in students strong critical thinking and writing skills; collaborate with colleagues in the history department; and be an active member of the school community. Other duties may include advising students, coaching, or supervising some other extracurricular activity. A background—and ability to teach electives—in African, Asian, Middle Eastern, or Latin American history is a distinct advantage. A bachelor’s degree and classroom experience are required, an advanced degree in history preferred.
