Trinity Washington University invites applications for adjunct faculty for the Fall 2013 semester for its Critical Reading Seminar (CRS) courses for first-year students. The course helps students develop critical reading skills such as paraphrasing, text analysis, identifying authors’ organizational strategies, and evaluating evidence used in texts in a range of disciplines. Critical Reading courses are a foundational element of Trinity’s First-Year Experience; applicants should present a proven record of dynamic, student-centered instruction.
QUALIFICATIONS: Successful candidates should have earned at least a Master’s degree in Reading or a related field. Experience teaching at the college level is desirable.
Adjuncts may teach up to two sections of the courses.
Official transcripts for all degrees earned, sample course syllabi, course evaluations, or other evidence of teaching effectiveness, and contact information for three professional references will be needed if invited to campus for an interview.
Candidates will be asked to conduct a brief teaching demonstration as a part of the interview process. The review of applicants will continue until the positions are filled.
