Open opportunities for the 2017-18 school year include:

7th Grade Literature (1 Section) — This Middle School level course takes an ELA approach to literature study, combining study of literature, grammar, writing, and vocabulary building.  Literature study focuses on classic works — novels and poetry — seeking to build a deep appreciation for the art of rich storytelling and to move students beyond reading comprehension, introducing them to the ways authors use literary elements to develop a theme.  Students should be taught and challenged to evaluate characters, theme, action, etc., in the light of Biblical standards of goodness, beauty, and truth.  Writing goals include journaling about literature, but begin to focus on building a student’s ability to develop a thesis statement and defend it with facts and good reasoning.  The 7th Grade Literature teacher will work with fellow Literature teachers to ensure continuity of goals and benchmarks, as well as with the Librarian to build on research skills introduced in earlier grades.  Students should develop a sound writing process, including proofreading, primarily for grammar.

This is considered 1 credit of teaching and can be combined with other courses to create a larger part-time position or a full-time position.

8th Grade Literature (1 Section) — This Middle School level course takes an ELA approach to literature study, combining study of literature, grammar, writing, and vocabulary building.  Literature study focuses on classic works — short stories, novels and drama — further developing a student’s ability to read deeply and critically, in addition to building an appreciation for rich storytelling.  Students should be taught and challenged to evaluate characters, theme, action, etc., in the light of Biblical standards of goodness, beauty, and truth.  Writing goals build on those begun in Literature 7, further developing a student’s ability to form an informed opinion and support it persuasively with facts and reason.  The 8th Grade Literature teacher will work with other Literature teachers to ensure continuity of goals and benchmarks, as well as with the Librarian to build on research skills introduced in earlier grades.  Students should further develop a good writing process, including proofreading, primarily for grammar.

This is considered 1 credit of teaching and can be combined with other courses to create a larger part-time position or a full-time position.

American Literature (11th Grade, 1 Section) — The American Literature teacher works in collaboration with the American History teacher in an “omnibus” model.  Literature is studied in the context of its historical period, focusing on the influential works of American Literature — novels, political prose, poetry, short stories, and drama — from the Colonial period to the Modern period.  Goals for writing are geared toward preparing students for their Thesis presentation in their Senior year.  While continuing to develop in students a deep appreciation for rich storytelling and powerful uses of language, instruction should explore the themes unique to the multifaceted American experience, challenging students to “think Biblically” about our national identity.  In collaboration with the American History teacher, the American Literature class should incorporate other cultural elements such as art and architecture, and students should engage in at least one interdisciplinary project, and at least one collaborative project.  The American History teacher will also work with other Literature teachers to ensure continuity of goals and benchmarks.

This is considered 1 credit of teaching and can be combined with other courses to create a larger part-time position or a full-time position.

Modern Literature (12th Grade, 1 Section) — The Modern Literature teacher works in collaboration with the Modern History teacher in an “omnibus” model.  Literature is studied in the context of its historical period, focusing primarily on the influential works —  novels, poetry, short stories, drama, and political propaganda — of the Western world, but includes exposure to Modern Literature of other world cultures.  The Modern Literature teacher works in collaboration with the Modern History teacher (and to a lesser degree with teachers of Theology, Government, Economics, Math, Science, and the Arts, as appropriate) to guide students through the writing of their Senior Thesis, a capstone research project that culminates in a presentation to faculty and staff.  Literature studies focus on themes of Modernism, including the secularization of culture, together with the apologetic voices that have helped demonstrate the “reasonableness” of Christian faith as a cohesive force giving life meaning and purpose.  In collaboration with the Modern History teacher, the Modern Literature class should incorporate other cultural elements such as art and architecture, and students should engage in at least one interdisciplinary project, and at least one collaborative project.  The Modern Literature teacher will also work with other Literature teachers to ensure continuity of goals and benchmarks.

American History (11th Grade, 1 Section) — The American History teacher works in collaboration with the American Literature teacher in an “omnibus” model.  History at Covenant is studied as the story God is telling through real people in real time — the story of Creation, Fall, Redemption, and Restoration / Glorification.  American History, as a “slice” of that all encompassing story, shapes our specific context for living our lives before God to His glory in the time and place He has set us.  Students explore the events that led to the Colonization of North America (including interactions of those Colonists with Native cultures), as well as the the events that led to the development of our nation and government and the important events that have shaped our current American culture. Students are challenged to evaluate people, ideas, actions, and events “through the lens” of God’s story.  In collaboration with the American Literature teacher, the American History class should incorporate other cultural elements such as art and architecture, and students should engage in at least one interdisciplinary project, and at least one collaborative project.  The American History teacher will also work with other History teachers to ensure continuity of goals and benchmarks.

Modern History (12th Grade, 1 Section) — The Modern History teacher works in collaboration with the American Literature teacher in an “omnibus” model.  History at Covenant is studied as the story God is telling through real people in real time — the story of Creation, Fall, Redemption, and Restoration / Glorification.  Students explore the major events that shaped Western culture, beginning with Age of Exploration and Enlightenment, and moving through the aftermath of World War II, with exposure to historical developments in other world cultures.  The Modern History teacher works assists the Modern Literature teacher with guiding students through the development of their Senior Thesis. Students are challenged to evaluate people, ideas, actions, and events “through the lens” of God’s story.  In collaboration with the Modern Literature teacher, the Modern History class should incorporate other cultural elements such as art and architecture, and students should engage in at least one interdisciplinary project, and at least one collaborative project.  The Modern History teacher will also work with other History teachers to ensure continuity of goals and benchmarks.

7th Grade Math (1 Section) — The Math 7 teacher serves those students who need extra practice and support in math concepts and skills in preparation for Pre Algebra or other higher maths.  These are primarily 7th grade students, but occasionally we find that in-coming students need remedial support to ensure a good math foundation for higher math studies.  Math at Covenant is taught as “a way to study God’s creation through numbers,” a tool for discovering and making things rooted in concrete reality.  Ideally, instruction equips students to “think mathematically,” with the ability to “play” with numbers, appreciate the beauty and pattern in math, and confidently employ a variety of strategies for problem solving.  The Math 7 teacher will work collaboratively with other Math teachers to ensure continuity of goals and benchmarks.

Substitute Teachers — We are always taking applications for substitute teachers for every grade level.
