Women’s History Educator Fellowship (Summer 2020)

Posted: April 3, 2020

The National Women’s History Museum is pleased to announce the opening of a
summer Women’s History Educator Fellowship. This program is open to
elementary or middle school history or social studies teachers for
approximately eight weeks during the summer of 2020.

The Fellow will oversee the National Women’s History Museum’s “For
Educators, By Educator’s” lesson plan project. “For Educators, By
Educators” engages social studies teachers from across the nation who are
eager to help create lesson plans on women’s history in support of the
Museum. The lesson plans, which correspond to topics from our 2018 “Where
are the Women?” study of national social study standards on women’s history
are digitized and made accessible to the public on the Museum’s
continuously growing compendium of digital learning resources found at
www.womenshistory.org.

The Fellow will review submitted lesson plans to ensure that they meet
Common Core and C3 Framework for Social Studies Standard, are historically
accurate, and meet the high standards of the Museum’s learning resource
offerings.

*This position will work remotely for the duration of the fellowship and
applicant must have reliable access to internet. Communication between
Fellow and NWHM Education staff will be conducted via telephone, email and
video conferencing.*

Applicants must be available to work part-time (15-20 hours per week) for 8
weeks, beginning in June 2020 (dates are flexible).

A $1500 stipend is awarded with this fellowship.

Please submit a cover letter and resume to history@womenshistory.org with
the subject line of “Women’s History Educator Fellowship”

*To be considered for Summer 2020, applications must be submitted by 9am
EST on Friday, May 22nd.*
