Position: Documentarian
Overview

Graduate NYC! (GNYC) is a collaborative effort of the New York City Department of Education (DOE), the City University of New York (CUNY), and various community-based organizations to improve high school and college outcomes for all New York City students. GNYC convenes and engages the local college success community while leading projects that are intended to catalyze and support efforts within and across institutions to increase college degree completion. The work of GNYC is built upon the belief that a college degree can be a driver of social mobility and financial stability, particularly for low-income young people, and ensuring more young people complete them is critical to the long-term health of this city. .

 

GNYC focuses its efforts within four primary impact areas, which include:

  • Data sharing, research & policy
  • College awareness, planning & advisement (NYC College Line)
  • Identifying, disseminating & scaling best practices in college readiness and completion, in partnership with community organizations
  • Academic readiness & curriculum alignment

 

Position Description:

The documentarian will primarily be responsible for attending and documenting workshops and summarizing their developments for the NYC Collaborative Curriculum Revision Project (CCRP). Workshop participants include high school and higher education faculty members and librarians. Workshops serve the purpose of helping participants collaboratively revise high school curriculum from the point of a common understanding of the educational challenges related to high school and college. The documentarian will take detailed notes during workshop sessions and summarize events in formal notes to help participants maintain coherent connections between sessions and provide an objective view of workshop developments. Documentarians report to the GNYC Project Manager.

 

Academic readiness and curriculum alignment: One of GNYC’s key areas of impact is through leadership in academic readiness and curricular alignment between K-12 and college. High rates of remediation locally and nationally are indicative of the need for improved alignment between high school and college curriculum. The CCRP was developed as a result of alignment projects resulting from GNYC’s Curriculum Alignment Project (2012-13), pilot projects with the CUNY Centers for Teaching & Learning (2013-14), and ongoing alignment efforts led by the DOE-CUNY Library Collaborative.

The NYC Collaborative Curriculum Revision Project (CCRP): This project addresses the needs of three deeply interrelated audiences—librarians, educators, and students—through a new model of collaborative curriculum revision that changes educational practice by creating alliances across institutional and disciplinary boundaries. Many students who do graduate fail to meet college and career readiness measures. Since 2010 the need to improve college readiness has prompted 45 states, including New York, to adopt the Common Core State Standards (www.corestandards.org). It has also prompted numerous library initiatives, including the formation of the DOE-CUNY Library Collaborative. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) is not a curriculum, even as advocates acknowledge they hope CCSS will prompt pedagogical change. Yet unlike curricular “packages,” where high school teachers are handed a product they have no investment in, this model enables them to generate their own college-readiness aligned curriculum. It does so by bringing together the expertise of subject teachers, writing instructors, and librarians on both sides of the high school and college divide.

 

Primary Responsibilities

  • Document and summarize workshop developments
  • Highlight best practices in collaborative inquiry through effective use of seminar style discussion techniques
  • Maintain close communication with Project Manager, Facilitator, and teams from DOE and CUNY
  • Attend meetings with DOE and CUNY advisors to share information
  • Contribute to the preparation of a final report highlighting the success and challenges of the series of workshops
  • Participate in an exit interview to provide reflection on process and to identify best documentarian practices

 

Qualifications & Core Competencies

Required

  • Excellent note-taking skills
  • Pursuing a Master’s degree in education or related field
  • Expert knowledge in current HS education reform efforts (Common Core State Standards), interrelationship between critical thinking and writing, and college research assignments
  • A commitment to supporting college readiness & success for all students and addressing achievement gaps; dedication to the mission of the CCRP
  • Excellent interpersonal, organizational, and written and verbal communication skills
  • Strong analytical ability
  • Demonstrated ability to multi-task and produce deliverables within given deadlines
  • Proven capacity to work with multiple and diverse constituencies to achieve a common agenda
  • Ability to thrive in a small team environment as part of a much larger system
  • Ability to take direction and work as part of a team, as well as to take initiative and work independently
  • Experience working with teachers, librarians, faculty, curriculum developers, and/or administrators at the K-12 level and college level
  • Willingness to travel to multiple project sites in New York City
  • Computer skills should include MS Office suite (Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint)

 

Salary: Rate of $25/hr (24-36 hour commitment)

Project Duration: January-June 2015 with possible assignment in Fall 2015 term

 

To Apply:

Applications will be accepted through October 15, 2014.

Please submit a resume and targeted cover letter, outlining how your skills, experience, and interests meet the qualifications of the position described here to the attention of Sharae Brown, Project Manager at Graduate NYC! at GNYCemployment@gmail.com.

Please put “CCRP Documentarian” in the subject line.

Please also state how you learned of this job opportunity.
