BAM (The Brooklyn Academy of Music) Education and Humanities seeks experienced curriculum writers and/or content specialists to collaborate in the development of a robust music history curriculum that supports the newly devised Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science and Technology.
The focus of the curriculum, which may be broken down into seven units/chapters, will be determined in consultation with BAM staff, and will trace the development of recorded music and the advances in technology that most impacted the growth and dissemination of American music in all its diversity.
Some possible unit/chapter topics might be "America Begins to Roar (1877-1929)," "The A-Bomb to Rock 'n' Roll (1955-1969)," and "The Digital Age," among others. Writers will be required to demonstrate expertise in specific genres and periods of American music in its cultural and historical context, and, if possible, provide BAM with previously published articles and works.
The ideal candidate should have a Masters or Ph.D., in Education and/or Musicology or Music History, extensive writing experience, and possess a strong interest in American music, music education and New Media. BAM is especially interested in candidates who are willing to work cooperatively with other writers, scholars and educators with the potential to continue on with this on-going project.
This is a part-time, curriculum writing position, which will end on June 30, 2013, when final text is due to BAM Education. Individuals will be paid per chapter. The fees range between 3K and 4k per chapter, commensurate with experience and the extent of the contribution to the project.
