Missouri Scholars Academy seeks faculty
The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education is seeking teachers to work with Missouri's brightest high school students during the 2008 Missouri Scholars Academy.
The Missouri Scholars Academy is a three-week residential program for high school students held each summer at the University of Missouri-Columbia. The program focuses on enhancing participants' academic skills, critical-thinking and problem-solving abilities and deepening their understanding of themselves.
During the program, faculty members will present three hours of instruction six mornings per week, and a one-hour class five afternoons per week. Full-time faculty will be compensated with $2,750 and may choose to stay in housing on the MU campus during the program. Meals will be provided.
Applications must be submitted by Jan. 11, 2008.
