Valor Collegiate Academies is seeking an exceptional High School AP Research teacher who is excited to share our mission of academic excellence and empowering scholars to live inspired and purposeful lives.
A teaching career at Valor is multifaceted and our teachers grow to become extraordinary educators, mentors, and leaders. As a lead teacher, you will deliver high-quality instruction by implementing a rigorous curriculum and data-driven preparation. You will collaborate weekly with teachers and instructional leaders to examine student data and lesson plans to ensure high academic rigor. As a mentor, you will guide a diverse group of scholars through positive character development using Valor’s Compass model, support scholars in achieving academic goals, and build close relationships with your mentees’ families. As a leader, you will play an integral role in shaping our high school’s growth and performance, leaving a lasting impact on our scholars’ experiences, and on a larger scale, the Valor community.
ABOUT THE COURSE
AP Research, the second course in the AP Capstone experience, allows students to deeply explore an academic topic, problem, issue, or idea of individual interest. Students design, plan, and implement a yearlong investigation to address a research question. Through this inquiry, they further the skills they acquired in the AP Seminar course by learning research methodology, employing ethical research practices, and accessing, analyzing, and synthesizing information. Students reflect on their skill development, document their processes, and curate the artifacts of their scholarly work through a process and reflection portfolio.
Launching a new AP course is a great deal of work and a large commitment – especially one that we hope will be a pillar for our high school program and that will provide core argumentation foundations for other advanced coursework in the humanities. Below, we have outlined what we anticipate will be requirements (and ideal but optional engagements) of year one of the course.
