This experiential education is a key aspect of a student’s educational experience.

The ANC Secondary Schools History Department seeks a Teacher Assistant student worker to perform the duties and responsibilities required of this role. Duties include:

  • Careful copy editing skills and an understanding of academic writing to assist with grading and critiquing writing assignments for two sections (about 40 students) of Freshman Ancient History
  • The written work in the course will vary from term to term. Term 1 will include frequent (once every week or two) small writing assignments focused on basic structure and argumentation. Term 2 will shift to larger writing assignments using formal essay structure and citing sources directly from class materials (3 or 4 throughout the term). Term 3 will transition to research, asking students to find sources, evaluate their credibility, and cite them carefully and correctly. This will be a single major research paper with a required outline and a required revision (3 separate assignments).
  • The teacher assistant would be expected to review each assignment, grade them according to a simple rubric, and provide helpful feedback on how to improve on future assignments. Dylan Glenn will work closely with the assistant to determine the amount and type of feedback and to develop a consistent grading scale. The assistant will also be expected to communicate with Dylan about the general strengths and weaknesses of the class as a whole, after each assignment. All assignments should be reviewed and graded within one week of when they were turned in. This can all be done by email, but Dylan will need to meet with the Assistant at the beginning of each term.
  • We anticipate this will be somewhere in the realm of 40 hours of work per term. Given that the curriculum is a work in progress and being taught by Dylan for the first time, all of this is subject to change. Input by the teaching assistant may be useful in shaping how writing in this course is taught.

  • Help with the grading of the larger writing assignments (both analytical essays and creative compositions). The assistant will be asked to analyze the works, assign a grade based upon a rubric, and give written feedback for how to improve on the student’s work, as the students will often have opportunities to rewrite and improve their assignments.
    • As the assignments vary in length and feedback depth, anticipate 15-20 minutes per assignment per student on major reviews and 5-10 minutes for revisions. There will be two major writing assignments each term with both a graded / commented draft and a revised draft. With an estimated 40 students, this works out to around 10-12 hours for major reviews, and 4-7 hours for revisions. This does not include “Office hours.” All in all T.A. should anticipate around 50 hours per trimester, but with clearly defined return dates.
  • While the bulk of the T.A.’s time will be grading and commenting on papers, which can be done in a variety of locations, the T.A. will have some “office hours” when they can meet with the students in case the students have any questions about the feedback, or a student requests to do some one-on-one work. This should be between the hours of 2pm and 4pm. It can be done from my classroom, DeCharms 261, on any weekday other than Wednesday.
  • The T.A. is expected to read, grade, and give feedback within ONE week of receiving the student’s work. There will always be one weekend before the T.A. is asked to return the student’s work. The T.A. and the teacher will work together to work out the due dates.
  • The T.A. will need to meet with the teacher to discuss rubrics and grading policies for each assignment.
