Consultant Opportunities

 

Summary of Positions

Teaching Lab is looking for content consultants available immediately to help with PD facilitation and design, virtual coaching, and site-support work.  

Our professional learning work supports implementation of two, high-quality ELA/Literacy curricula at this time:

  1. EL Education Literacy Curriculum (Grades K-8)

  2. Louisiana ELA Guidebooks 2.0 (Grades 3-12)


Qualifications 

We are looking for content consultants with:

  • Deep content knowledge in ELA/literacy instruction and the CCSS ELA Shifts

  • Experience designing and/or leading professional learning

  • A strong interest in curriculum and curriculum implementation


Roles

There are 4 different areas in which we need support. Consultants may work primarily in one of these 4 areas, but ideal candidates would be able to work across more than one or all 4. Our most acute need is for high-quality facilitators.

  1. PD Facilitation (in-person) – Leading cycles of inquiry for teachers and instructional coaches in districts based on the PD content we design; requires travel to facilitate PD days

  2. Virtual coaching for peer leaders of PD (remote) – Providing phone/video conference support for teachers and instructional coaches who are preparing to lead cycles of inquiry for their peers; includes content, community building, and facilitation support

  3. PD Content Design (remote) - Building PD Modules (PPT’s, agenda, activities, handouts etc.) to support specific curriculum using a cycle of inquiry model

  4. Site management (primarily remote) – Supporting district partners in planning logistics, program design, and delivery for professional learning; may require a small amount of travel depending on district needs
