Teaching assistant position for the 2-week summer course for high school students with Cornelia Pearsall, "Discovering Women's History," which runs from July 7-18 (40 hours per week at $9 per hour). There is an additional week of training with the office of Summer Programs in the week prior to the course (June 23-27, also 40 hours at $9 per hour), as well as a period of course planning (40 hours or fewer at $9 per hour) with Cornelia Pearsall, at a mutually convenient date prior to the course.
Any additional hours will be paid as overtime. The position requires gaining knowledge of collections in the Sophia Smith Collection, the College Archives, the Mortimer Rare Book Room and the Smith College Museum of Art and being able to assist students in using archival materials. The position would satisfy one of the practical experiences for the Archives Concentration.
The student TA could receive room and board in a Smith house with the students for 3 weeks in exchange for some residential responsibilities. Interested? Contact Cornelia Pearsall immediately (email@example.com). Interviews for the position are ongoing and will be filled this spring.
