VIEW JOBS 3/9/2019 12:00:00 AM 2019-06-07T00:00 General Summary: The University of North Georgia is currently accepting applications for Summer Computer Science Instructors for the Upward Bound Summer Program. The University of North Georgia's Upward Bound Programs provides fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance. The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their pre-college performance and, ultimately, in their higher education pursuits. Upward Bound serves high school students from low-income families; and high school students from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor's degree. The goal of Upward Bound is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from institutions of postsecondary education. The Upward Bound Summer Institute hosted on the Dahlonega campus will offer a 3-week residential component for 70-80 rising 10th -12th graders. Participants will take courses in core areas aligned with Georgia school performance measures. Additionally, the UB program will offer elective courses supporting student mastery of key prerequisites (e.g. Algebra I) to ensure success in all STEM fields, including computer science; exposing students to building block skills (such as critical thinking and problem-solving, gained through hands-on, inquiry-based learning); or supporting the development of proficiency in the use of computer applications necessary to transition from user of technologies, particularly computer technologies to a developer of them. These courses will be held Monday – Thursday, 1:30 pm – 5: 00 pm on the UNG Dahlonega campus. The tentative dates for instruction are June 10th – July 2nd, 2019. This position is grant funded.
