Description

In this role you will research and write articles designed to deepen students’ understanding of core history topics in 3rd-12th grade. You recall the history books you read when you were a student and want to write a different kind of history: one that is engaging, includes the voices of marginalized groups, and connects to big ideas that students care about. You love all things social studies-related and are willing to go the extra mile to ensure that what you write for students is accurate and thoroughly fact-checked. 

You also want to collaborate closely with a small team that is passionate about curriculum and constantly strives to improve by providing and soliciting feedback. You take ownership of your work and are eager to give an article a second pass if it makes the writing better for students.

Responsibilities

  • Research and write articles that cover social studies curriculum standards while engaging students and helping to develop deep understanding of core concepts
  • Revise existing articles to ensure that they are accurate and reflect the experiences of historically marginalized groups
  • Find and excerpt primary sources to be used as DBQs 
  • Fact-check articles, instruction, and curricular units to ensure accuracy and comprehensiveness

Qualifications

  • Experience researching, writing, and fact-checking social studies curriculum for grades 3-12

Application Process

  1. Send your resume, a sample of your writing, and a cover letter explaining how your background connects to this role to jobs@activelylearn.com.
  2. Be prepared to complete a work sample if the team reaches out to you.
