T2L Curriculum Development Internship Application

Teach to Learn Curriculum Development Summer Internship

Position Description

The Teach to Learn (T2L) program is a partnership between Williams College, MCLA, and North Adams Public Schools (NAPS). T2L is designed to impact the science learning experiences of undergraduate students by engaging them in a summer-long experience to develop and revise science units for K-6 classrooms.

T2L interns will work with faculty and staff from MCLA and Williams, as well as NAPS teachers and administrators, to develop, test and revise science units for use in elementary classrooms. Training is provided and no previous curriculum development experience is required. Interns will meet with NAPS teachers on a bi-weekly basis to share work and receive feedback. We encourage all students to apply regardless of major, and prefer applicants with an interest in teaching and who have strong writing, communication, and organizational skills.

This paid internship is eight weeks long. Room and board are available at Williams College.
