New Trier High School in Winnetka, Illinois, is seeking a dynamic, progressive leader to chair our Modern & Classical Department (MCL), staffed by 39 MCL Department teachers (including the Chair) and two support staff members. Department leadership is shared with the MCL Department Coordinator who is located on the Northfield Campus. The Modern and Classical Languages (MCL) Department recognizes that at the heart of language learning is the ability to communicate. Communication promotes understanding, tolerance and respect for others. The curricula in the MCL Department are shifting to better meet the needs of New Trier students and to align with the World- Readiness Standards. The department offers seven languages with a range of courses, from first year to Advanced Placement. Some courses are taught as multiple ability groups, while others are mixed-level courses. New Trier students complete an average of 3.4 years of language study. Courses in MCL are built around thematic units and essential questions with some classes using textbooks and others teacher created materials. Teachers in the MCL Department collaborate to determine common course objectives and to develop materials. Teachers use a variety of methods, including mobile learning experiences, to reach the common course goals. The MCL facilities include department offices, classrooms, and three Multimedia Language Labs that are staffed by technology specialists. The MCL Department Chair will work with other stakeholders as a member of the Winnetka Campus Leadership Team.
