BASIS International School Guangzhou is seeking qualified candidates for an AP Human Geography Teacher for the coming school year!

BASIS International teachers are knowledgeable, passionate, and believe in transforming education. As part of a uniquely collaborative and professional teaching community, BASIS International teachers motivate students to reach their highest potential, while also elevating their skills through peer collaboration and a culture where learning is of the greatest importance.

As an AP Human Geography Teacher, it is primarily your responsibility to develop engaging, content-rich subject-specific lesson plans and to teach creative thinking and problem-solving. You also have the opportunity to collaborate with other BASIS International teachers to create interdisciplinary lessons with other subjects the students are studying, such as history or science.

Students will explore how humans have understood, used, and changed the surface of Earth. They will use the tools and thinking processes of geographers to examine patterns of human population, migration, and land use.

Primary Job Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Prepare subject-specific lessons in AP Human Geography.
  • Provide subject instruction on a higher level than grade standard, in an interactive learning environment and deliver exceptional results for all students.
  • Implement BASIS Curriculum by designing effective and creative lessons and assessments to ensure students' education is at an internationally competitive level.
  • Collaborate with other BASIS International teachers to form a community of smart, talented, and interesting people who are passionate about education and readily willing to work in a professional, academic environment.
  • Tutor students in content-specific knowledge and skills to heighten the trajectory of students’ academic and career success.
  • Manage student behavior to foster academic achievement, personal responsibility, intellect, and individuality in all students.
