ACT Seeks Teachers For Summer Program
ACT is looking for outstanding secondary schoolteachers to participate in a summer program designed to help develop and evaluate ACT’s test materials and classroom support resources.
ACT’s Visiting Teacher program seeks four teachers from middle school, junior high or high school with experience teaching minority students. The Visiting Teacher Program brings teachers from across the United States to ACT’s national headquarters in Iowa City, Iowa.
During their six-week stay, teachers will use their classroom experience and expertise, including making recommendations to improve the test.
Secondary school science, mathematics and language arts teachers are eligible for the program. Earth/space science teachers and minority teachers are especially encouraged to apply.
The six-week program beings June 19 and runs through July 28, 2006. Teachers will receive a stiped of $5,500 and round-trip transportation between their home and Iowa City. ACT will secure and subsidize housing for the visiting teachers. Teachers will be asked to pay approximately $1,050 for their entire stay.
To apply, teachers need to submit a completed application, available on-line at ACT’s website, www.act.org/path/secondary/visit.html. Teachers will also need to send a current resume and two letters of recommendation. Application materials can be sent to:
