Teacher Special Programs (TSP) Pre-College Trio Programs Center for Educational Partnerships

The Center for Educational Partnerships at UC Berkeley seeks qualified temporary non-tenure track, part-time Instructors and Co-Instructors (TSPs) for Summer to lead virtual summer instruction of high school students in the following online summer courses: Mathematics (Algebra II, Precalculus, Calculus); Humanities/Social Science (English, Law, and Political Science), Sciences (Health Sciences, Biology, and Chemistry), Computer Science (C++ and Robotic Engineering), and Creative Arts (Music, Animation, and Storytelling). Actual instruction takes place from June 21- July 29, 2021. Instructors for the Pre-College TRIO Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math & Science Program will create and implement engaging and academically rigorous six-week courses for low-income, first-generation-to-college high school students. Class sizes are small (approximately 15 students) and are taught on the UC Berkeley campus.

The Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math-Science Program are federally funded educational outreach programs serving high school students who are low-income and first-generation-to-college (LIFG). The academic component of the summer programs focuses on social justice, college preparation, and project-based learning. Our motto this year is James Baldwin's quote, "The world is before you, and you need not take it or leave it as it was when you came in. We feel this quote captures our pedagogical aim to empower our students to be leaders and the social change agents the current climate of the world demands.

The UB/UBMS Virtual Summer Program provides a select group of nearly 100 students from California, Hawaii and Nevada the opportunity to engage in academic and career preparatory content in addition to college advising. Students also engage in exciting enrichment activities, academic and college-preparation workshops, and virtual field trips. Instruction will take place Monday - Friday, please see tentative schedules at the end of the document.

We are seeking outstanding instructors (TSPs) who can teach high school courses for the Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math & Science Summer Program.
