We're looking for amazing educators to fill the following positions:

We are seeking a skilled secondary ELA teacher to create additional writing units to add to our existing secondary writing units.

Teach 4 the Heart currently sells 4 writing units (argumentative essay, compare/contrast, historical fiction, and process paper). We have a unique and effective system for teaching the writing process to secondary students. Your job would be to use our existing process and templates to create additional writing unit(s) for other types of writing such as paraphrases, poetry, personal narrative, etc.

Job Responsibilities Include:

  • Writing all parts of the writing unit including teachers' instructions, information for students, graphic organizers, scaffolded instructions for students, rewriting and editing checklists, grading forms, and an example paper.
  • Proofreading the unit to ensure there are no typos or grammatical errors
  • Laying out the unit in a logical and appealing matter using the pattern of our pre-designed templates (this will most likely be done in Microsoft Word)

The Ideal Candidate would...

  • Have experience teaching writing in either middle school or high school
  • Possess strong writing and proofreading skills
  • Have the ability to break up complex processes into smaller tasks that students can easily manage. As well as be able to explain them in a way students can easily understand
  • Either already have a working knowledge of Microsoft Word or have the ability to quickly get yourself up to speed on the basic features. Also be able to create your own graphic organizers if needed.
  • Be comfortable with technology & confident in your ability to figure out new software or online programs. We will be using programs such as Microsoft Word, Google Docs, and AdobePDF, and you need to be able to use these programs without much assistance.
  • Have the time available to complete projects in a reasonable amount of time

Estimated Hours:

This position will most likely be project-based, meaning that we will discuss a project and set the due dates together.

Note that we may initially assign smaller tasks to gauge your skills and choose a final candidate. 

Location:

This will be a virtual position, meaning you can work from home - or basically anywhere with a reliable internet connection. I prefer someone from North America so that are in similar time zones and can communicate more easily, but I will consider applicants from other locations.

Compensation:

You will be paid per project. Rates will be discussed & determined during the application process.

  • Teaching sample: Take one of the projects above and write out an explanation of its key features as you would want them to appear in a handout you would give your students explaining the genre to them. (For example, if I chose historical fiction, I would explain to students what historical fiction is as well as its key elements and the process used to write a historical fiction piece.)
