DESCRIPTION:

At UA Unison, students are successful when instruction is progressive, structured, standards based, coherent and accountable, through the coherent implementation of learning formats–routinized activities with specific rules and roles for students and teachers. These formats don't spell out the content that should be taught. Instead, they provide teachers with support in structuring time and space and establishing patterns of social interaction within their classrooms. The learning formats specify the roles, rules and responsibilities that participants adhere to in order to learn content, providing the structure necessary to make a progressive model successful. We believe in the progressive ideal that students learn best when they are responsible for their own learning and finding purpose in their work, and seek to assure engagement by allowing students maximum autonomy. Whenever possible, students choose topics, content, texts, and collaborators for curriculum activities based on interest. Teachers are responsible to ensure students exceed learning standards at a differentiated pace through thorough data collection and analysis, intentional coaching of social/emotional skills, and cultivation of joint intentions.

We are committed to professional development during the day. Such activities may include multiple two week co-teaching residencies with the principal, assistant principal and coach, inquiry based workshops where data such as student performance data and classroom video is collaboratively examined, peer observation and feedback, and collaborative examination of relevant professional literature.

Maintaining an organized, print rich classroom environment.
Creating a safe and supportive learning environment with routines and structures that align to the school's core values and social emotional learning model.
Assessing and responding to student learning and social behavior through data collection and record management systems designated in Learning Cultures model. Conference and group instruction records must be submitted weekly.

Collaborating on an inter-disciplinary planning and teaching team with an emphasis on analyzing student performance data and planning responsive instruction and intervention, and taking leadership roles on teams and committees.
Initiating and maintaining student enrichment activities that promote student leadership and exposure to new experiences and cultures.
Teaching in long instructional blocks to facilitate independent work time, small and large group instruction, conferences, and whole class shares.
Conducting one on one learning conferences with all students at least twice monthly during the school day.
Meeting with every student in small group instruction at least twice weekly during the school day.
Developing an individual growth plan in collaboration with the Principal, Assistant Principal and/or coach that will monitor progress and assess his/her effectiveness in enhancing student achievement.

Who We Are

Longview School is like no other.

While Longview School certainly has a rigorous pre-K through 12th grade academic program, what makes Longview unique is our supportive community where each student knows and is known by every teacher. In our small classes (3-10 students), teachers make the curriculum relevant by connecting their subjects to the students' lives. Combined with a hands-on educational approach, this inspires students to love learning. Beyond academics, Longview empowers students to become independent and responsible as they participate in our democratically-governed school with a student-led judicial system. Longview's focus on educating the whole child, academically and personally, gives our graduates an undeniable advantage as they transition to college.

The above is what we say about the school, but Longview is of course much more. It is a place created by teachers who were successful in traditional academic settings, but who believe that education is not filling students' heads with information, but is about learning to become successful adults. For us, success is measured first and foremost by being able to lead happy lives. Not the sort of happiness that comes with seeming perfection on the outside while there is endless turmoil on the inside. No, the kind of happiness that comes from people knowing themselves well enough to be able to guide their lives towards happiness. The kind of happiness that comes when people have learned the skills to have some control over themselves and their world, having tested their mettle in a safe, supportive environment so that they leave school ready to face what comes next. The kind of happiness possessed by people who have learned independence and responsibility, at the same time that they have learned how to form meaningful and supportive relationships with peers and teachers. If this is the sort of school you want not only to be a part of, but to have an active role in helping to create, then maybe we have a place for you.

Longview combines aspects of the Sudbury School model with more traditional academic education. So how does that work?

We have 2 educational tracks: the Sudbury track and the Academic track. Each family--parents and kids together--chooses which track is right for the child. On the Academic track, students take classes in English, math, science and social studies, in addition to electives. On the Sudbury track, students are able to choose how to fill their time at school. They can take as many or as few classes as they choose, or help to create classes in areas of their special interests. Although the classes cover fairly traditional content, there is a constant focus on hands-on learning and making the material relevant to students' lives.

Regardless of their track, all students participate in the other aspects of a Sudbury education, which include participation in:

-a truly democratic school (run by School Meeting in which every student and each staff member get one vote);

-a student-run judicial system to resolve conflicts among all community members;

-a system of clerkship jobs in which students share in the real-world work of running and maintaining a school;

-an internship system placing kids in real job settings;

-a student-run chore system in which students take responsibility for keeping the school neat each day.

To learn more about our school, check out our website at www.longviewschool.org.

What We Need

We are looking for an intern who is truly excited by our innovative model and who is nearly bursting with passion for democratic education. The right person should have knowledge and skills in at least one of the following areas: Writing and/or ESL

Candidates might include

-a young person who is not sure what to do in life, but knows that s/he has a lot to give;

-a person with real-life skills who wants to apply her/hisknowledge through teaching;

-someone who is new to teaching and can't imagine working in a traditional school;

-a parent who is unwilling to send her/his child(ren) to public school and wants to be a part of their education;

-someone retired from teaching who can't stay away from education but won't stand for any other place than a school in which the kids are empowered;

-someone who is uniquely qualified for reasons we haven't yet considered.

Team players are a must, as we all wear many hats.

What We're Offering

Compensation will include some of the below depending on the particular circumstances of each candidate:

1) A monthly stipend ($750 to $1,000);

2) Housing near the school (stipend of $750 if housing is included);

3) A barter arrangement for being able to enroll a child/children in the school;

4) The possibility of greater employment in future school years.

How to Apply

Look over our website (www.longviewschool.org). Watch the videos in our Guided Introduction. Then write a letter of interest. Send in your letter and resume by email to info @ longviewschool.org or by mail to Longview School, 83 Main Street, Brewster, NY 10509.

Salary: $1,000.00 /month

No, the kind of happiness that comes from people knowing themselves well enough to be able to guide their lives towards happiness. The kind of happiness that comes when people have learned the skills to have some control over themselves and their world, having tested their mettle in a safe, supportive environment so that they leave school ready to face what comes next. The kind of happiness possessed by people who have learned independence and responsibility, at the same time that they have learned how to form meaningful and supportive relationships with peers and teachers. If this is the sort of school you want not only to be a part of, but to have an active role in helping to create, then maybe we have a place for you.

Longview combines aspects of the Sudbury School model with more traditional academic education. So how does that work?

We have 2 educational tracks: the Sudbury track and the Academic track. Each family--parents and kids together--chooses which track is right for the child. On the Academic track, students take classes in English, math, science and social studies, in addition to electives. On the Sudbury track, students are able to choose how to fill their time at school. They can take as many or as few classes as they choose, or help to create classes in areas of their special interests. Although the classes cover fairly traditional content, there is a constant focus on hands-on learning and making the material relevant to students' lives.

Regardless of their track, all students participate in the other aspects of a Sudbury education, which include participation in:

-a truly democratic school (run by School Meeting in which every student and each staff member get one vote);
-a student-run judicial system to resolve conflicts among all community members;
-a system of clerkship jobs in which students share in the real-world work of running and maintaining a school;
-an internship system placing kids in real job settings;
-a student-run chore system in which students take responsibility for keeping the school neat each day.

To learn more about our school, check out our website at www.longviewschool.org.


What We Need

We are looking for an intern who is truly excited by our innovative model and who is nearly bursting with passion for democratic education. The right person should have knowledge and skills in Computer Science. A willingness/ability to help with ESL and PE classes would also be a plus.

Candidates might include

-a young person who is not sure what to do in life, but knows that s/he has a lot to give;
-a person with real-life skills who wants to apply her/his knowledge through teaching;
-someone who is new to teaching and can't imagine working in a traditional school;
-a parent who is unwilling to send her/his child(ren) to public school and wants to be a part of their education;
-someone retired from teaching who can't stay away from education but won't stand for any other place than a school in which the kids are empowered;
-someone who is uniquely qualified for reasons we haven't yet considered.

Team players are a must, as we all wear many hats.

What We're Offering

Compensation will include some of the below depending on the particular circumstances of each candidate:

1) A monthly stipend ($500 to $1,000);

2) Housing near the school;

3) A barter arrangement for being able to enroll a child/children in the school;

4) The possibility of greater employment in future school years.
