Summer Opportunities For Our Students

Paid Summer Teaching and PD Opportunity: High School and College Readiness Courses
This summer, RIDE will be offering four classes to prepare rising 9th and 12th graders for their Mathematics and English Language Arts classes next year. The courses include social-emotional tools and strategies designed to promote growth mindset, sense of belonging, meaningful collaboration, metacognitive awareness, and the use of learning strategies. Each course will be fully online, involving both synchronous and asynchronous activities. Participating teachers (current secondary certified high school math, or math adjacent, and English or social sciences, teachers) will be prepared and supported to effectively teach the courses through professional development from Carnegie/WestEd the week of June 22-29, and will receive ongoing support from master teachers over the summer. The course itself will run from June 29-August 21 and all teachers will teach two sections (morning and afternoon) for a total of 22 hours (prep time, instruction, and grading) per week. The stipend for teaching any of the Readiness courses this summer will be $7,520. If you are interested in teaching one of these courses, please complete this form by Wednesday, June 17 and learn more about the courses here.

Attention students! Get up to $750 to take a Math or ELA class this Summer

If you are going to be in 9th or 12th grade in September, sign up here to take a fully online Math or ELA class for eight weeks from June 29 - August 21 and get paid up to $750 for completing assignments! You can choose to attend either a morning or afternoon virtual session every day for 30 minutes with the whole class, and will then complete assignments in small groups and independently. The Math courses will focus on making sure you are caught up and ready for class in September, and the ELA courses will be reading comedian Trevor Noah’s Born a Crime.
