518 Monologues Teaching Artist Application
The Orchard Project is seeking artist-educators with experience teaching playwriting to join our team of Teaching Artists to lead school and community-based workshops as part of The 518 Monologues, a new Orchard Project community initiative.
About the Role
Working collaboratively with Orchard Project staff, Teaching Artists will help develop a flexible curriculum based on the OP’s values and Creative Vocabulary. The Teaching Artists will tailor this curriculum to their individual method and preference in order to lead in-person workshop sessions with 518 participants.
Teaching Artists will work with participating schools and community organizations leading two types of workshops. The first is a four-week long series of monologue writing workshops, with one session per week. The second type of workshop will be just a single accelerated session. (Note: OP Staff will manage all logistics with partner organizations.)
- Experience in a classroom setting is preferred.
- Highly flexible and adaptable to a range of educational situations.
- Must be able to travel independently to schools in the Saratoga Springs and surrounding areas
Winter 2022: Curriculum Development – approx. 2 hours/week
Summer 2022/Fall 2022 – Workshops – approx. 3-5 hours/week, lesson prep included, with some weeks off depending on availability of partner organizations
Capital Region playwrights are strongly encouraged to apply, although submissions will also be accepted from out-of-state applicants as we will also be producing a series of remote, online workshops. The Orchard Project is an equal opportunity employer and encourages applicants of all backgrounds and identities.
All teachers will be paid a competitive hourly rate, including paid time for lesson planning/prep.
