Seeking two experienced teachers or education professionals for an stimulating five-week, 30 hours/week summer position developing lesson plans to help bring information about the Red Hills Region and local ecology into local classrooms. This summer employment opportunity is part of the Red Hills Region Outreach & Education Program of Tall Timbers Research Station & Land Conservancy, located in Leon County, Florida
Successful candidates will lead the development of research and standards based lessons and activities for use in grade 9-12 classrooms. This is a new effort and we are seeking creative and motivated educators to work collaboratively to craft the arc of the lessons, shape their structure, and adapt content to best meet the needs of teachers and students. The Outreach & Education Coordinator will work closely with you throughout the five-week position and Tall Timbers’ world renowned research and conservation staff will be available for consultations as content experts. Time will be provided for candidates to learn more about the Red Hills Region and the work Tall Timbers is doing to help conserve it.
Lesson plans created during this summer position will be part of the content for teacher workshops in the fall. Pending future grant funding, we would like to add to the available lesson plan topics each summer. The project model is similar to nature based education programs like Project Learning Tree and Project Wild. Our goal is to utilize this model to develop content specific to the Red Hills. This fits into our long-term effort of building support to protect the Red Hills Region’s ecological, scenic, and historical resources.
