The Noble Network of Charter Schools

Middle School Humanities Teacher

III. 2017-18 Teaching Chicago, Illinois


Be Noble. Teach Humanities at Gary Comer Middle School.

Gary Comer College Prep Middle School is the only middle school campus of the Noble Network of Charter Schools in Chicago, IL. Seeing as how our scholars are only in middle school, our vision may seem a bit presumptuous, but we are 100% certain that each and every one of our scholars is on the road to and through the college of his/her choice.

We are looking for a 7th Grade Humanities Teacher. Humanities at GCMS is a literacy driven class using informational texts and primary source documents to engage students in relevant historical study and to support informational reading strategies taught in core Reading classes by ELA teachers. The position requires knowledge of Common Core Writing Standards, Illinois Learning Standards for Social Science, and thorough knowledge of teacher-chosen class content (i.e. US History, World History, Current Events, etc.).
