Lecturer in English
University of Pennsylvania
United States


The Urban Teaching Apprenticeship Program at the University of Pennsylvania is recruiting a part-time lecturer to teach the courses “Secondary English Methods” and “Advanced Secondary English Methods.” These courses take a practice-based approach to learning asset-based, student-centered and historically responsive English Language Arts practices for grade 7-12 educators. The courses focus on how literacy practices can and should be situated in the communities where we teach and reflective of our students' identities using an intersectional lens. These courses seek to spark observation, analysis, and reflection that will guide secondary teachers to become lifelong learners who enact antiracist and culturally sustaining pedagogical practices. “Secondary English Methods” is taught as an evening course in the Fall term and “Advanced Secondary English Methods” is taught as an evening course in the Spring term.

This position is part-time and non-tenure-track and involves in-person teaching; pay is competitive. Applications will be reviewed as soon as they are received and will close once current positions are filled. Due to the volume of applications, only candidates selected for an interview will be contacted. No letters of recommendation are required at this time.


We seek applicants with demonstrated commitment to excellence in k-12 teaching in urban schools and to the pursuit of social justice, equity, and inclusion. A master’s degree or doctorate in education or a related field and prior experience in secondary ELA classrooms are required. Experience teaching in urban k-12 schools and in higher education are valued.

Application Instructions

To apply, please submit a detailed curriculum vitae, recent prior teaching evaluations (within the last 3 years), and a cover letter describing your educational and professional background, and how your teaching contributes to excellence in education and practice and to the pursuit of social justice, equity, and inclusion.
