Williams Elementary Outreach – Summer 2016
What’s in the job?
Williams Elementary Outreach hires three students for a nine-week summer internship. During this internship, the first two weeks are devoted to revising existing curriculum units and the next seven weeks are dedicated to developing new curriculum units with a week break in the middle spent working as lab instructors at the Williams College Summer Science Lab. WEO interns work in pairs with interns from MCLA to develop and revise curriculum units. Throughout the summer the interns receive guidance and support from faculty and staff at Williams, MCLA, and North Adams Public Schools. This work is done through Teaching to Learn, a four-year NSF-funded grant. From 2014 through 2018, students from Williams and MCLA will develop curriculum during the summer, which will be implemented in the North Adams School district during the year.
