Four U.S. teachers sought to help with government-sanctioned progressive high-school experiment in China

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Media Giraffe Project conference alum Stephen Wilmarth is seeking to hire four U.S. teachers to spend a minimum of one year in China as part of a government-sanctioned effort to experiment with innovative teaching methods focused on 21st-century, technology-enabled learning.

He’s looking for teachers with degrees in math, science, engineering, art, history, psychology or economics qualified to teach rigorous Advanced Placement and other academic subjects. The goal, he says, is “create a liberal education model along the lines of a tip U.S. college-preparatory academy.”

The program is within the No. 1 High School Affiliated with Central China Normal University (the nation’s top teacher-education institution) in Wuhan, Hibei Province. You can view either both a FAQ sheet and a posting notice about the opportunities, which include details about pay, living and working conditions for what Wilmarth says “is now becoming one of China’s boldest experiments in education reform.”
