Job Description Summary

The School of Sciences and Humanities at Wentworth Institute of Technology has a regular need for Adjunct Faculty to teach College English.

There will be possible need in Spring 2024 which starts January 9th, more in Fall 2024 (term starts in early September).


The adjunct faculty member is responsible for:
  • Preparing a syllabus for the course and distributing the syllabus to the students, based on recommendation of the School of Sciences and Humanities and the provost office
  • Teaching courses in collaboration with the course coordinator
  • Preparing quizzes, lab, and exams.
  • Grading assignments and exams in a timely manner

English Sequence: English 1, English 2, English 0900

English I – An introduction to college-level academic writing and research. Instruction focuses on critical reading and analysis, composing and revising strategies, writing for varied rhetorical purposes, critical thinking, information literacy, and writing from sources.

English II – A sequel to English I in which students will continue to develop their writing and research skills and will study four Western cultural movements – the Enlightenment, Romanticism, Modernism, and Postmodernism – which will provide them with the cultural and historical framework necessary for beginning their humanities and social science electives. Students will explore these movements through the critical reading of a range of texts, including fiction, poetry, drama, philosophy, political theory, cultural history and theory, aesthetic criticism and theory, and the personal essay.

English 0900 — This course promotes basic English language skills and writing practice in which less than adequately prepared students may upgrade their readiness for college-level study through improved reading, writing, speaking and listening.
