The successful candidate will teach courses in composition, literature, and humanities to secondlanguage learners. All of the courses at CGE are taught completely in English and accredited by Broward and other partner institutions. Teaching responsibilities include a 5/5 teaching load of courses such as ESL Advanced Composition I & II, English Composition I & II, Introduction to Literature, and a variety of humanities offerings.
