Apply for Teach For India Fellowship

Apply for Teach For India Fellowship

Offered by: Teach For India

Key Dates:
Two application deadlines: December 1, 2008 and February 1, 2009.

Teach For India Fellows:

The Teach For India Fellowship will probably be the most challenging experience of a Fellow’s life and likely the most transformational. As a teacher, every day will give Fellows multiple opportunities to confront and tackle challenges, motivate diverse stakeholders to work hard toward a shared vision, create and adjust plans to move further towards goals and gain the confidence they need to succeed.
Role of TFI Fellows

Every Teach For India Fellow will have two main responsibilities, through which he/she will learn leadership skills in a hands-on, results-driven environment.

Classroom Instructional Leadership
Fellows will be full-time teachers in English-medium government or low-income private schools for two consecutive academic years (June through April). Fellows are expected to lead students in their classrooms toward academic achievement that defies traditional expectations. Fellows will foster this achievement by getting to know their students in and out of the classroom; creating instructional plans to match the whole class’s and individual student’s needs; delivering instruction in an engaging manner; working with other teachers, administrators and community members to build skills and obtain resources for the classroom; and administering and analyzing assessments to ensure that students are progressing towards their academic goals.

Classroom/Community Transformation Project
In the second year of the Fellowship, in addition to teaching, Fellows will implement a project in the school and/or students’ community. The project will seek to tackle a principal challenge to students’ achievement. To carry out this project effectively, Fellows will research and plan the project; amass resources necessary to implement the project; invest students, families, teachers, administrators and/or community members to help implement the project; and troubleshoot the project in its execution phase.
