Steps

  1. Fill out an application (doc) by the deadline below. Tell us about yourself and sketch out your class plans!

  2. Send your application to splashchicago@gmail.com.

  3. Come to a 20 minute interview with 2-3 Splash! board members. We'll ask you to talk in more detail about your class proposal, how you plan to make your class accessible and exciting for students, your motivations for teaching with us, and your teaching style.

  4. We may ask you to come to a short teaching interview! We'll ask you to teach a 5-minute sample of your class, and then we'll talk about it.

  5. If you're accepted, we'll then ask you to come to 3 teacher training sessions. In the past, teachers have found these very useful. They generally include practicing teaching part of your class to your fellow teachers, attending a mock Cascade class and working one-on-one with a board member to revise your lesson plan.

Notes

Please keep in mind that Splash! Chicago serves to protect the well-being of our high school students, parents, schools and the University of Chicago. Given our responsibility to these entities, occasionally we may ask teachers to modify their classes. Topics that raise concerns include those that may inadvertently promote sex, violence, drug use, etc. Please don’t hesitate to notify us if you think your class may push the boundaries of what is traditionally acceptable of minors to learn. We look forward to working with you!
