Cheap Textbook website for CUNY students

February 28, 2012

I’m a Junior at Baruch College and part of, a nonprofit
website that allows CUNY students to buy and sell textbooks between each
other for free. The site was founded by a group of recent Baruch graduates
who wanted to give something back and help other CUNY students save money.
The site works like Craigslist, where it is completely free to use and we
have over 400 student registrations with close to 600 textbooks posted so
far. Using Flierguy, students save more than 50% on textbook prices as
there is no middlemen (college bookstore) so students can sell their old
textbooks that’s collecting dust on their shelf and find other students who
are on a tight budget and really need to buy textbooks at cheap prices. So,
I just wanted to write to you and ask if you could please share this with
your students. I know they can benefit greatly from this free service and
with your help, we can help let more students know about our site!

PAID INTERNSHIP-Museum of Jewish Heritage-A Living Memorial to the Holocaust

February 27, 2012


PAID INTERNSHIP ­ Learn, Teach, and Inspire

The Lipper Internship brings together graduate and undergraduate students
from across the Northeast to train in New York City for a semester-long
internship in museum education. As a Lipper Intern you will come to the
Museum in New York City for ten days to learn the moving story of 20th
century Jewish life and the Holocaust. Upon returning to your college
campus for the semester, you will teach students in local classrooms and
lead them on trips to the Museum. Through the Lipper Internship, college
undergraduate and graduate participants of all ages and backgrounds will
inspire students across the Northeast with universal messages of memory,
justice, and hope.

How does the program work?
· Training: Prior to the fall or spring semester, Interns attend an
intensive ten-day training period at the Museum in New York City. During
training, Interns meet with Museum staff, hear testimony from Holocaust
survivors, and learn methods for teaching from artifacts in the Museum¹s
collection. Lodging is provided, if necessary.

· Teaching: Following training, Interns teach with a partner at a
minimum of three public schools (middle and/or high schools) in their
college region. Each school participates in a three-part program, including
an introductory lesson in the classroom, a visit to the Museum, and a final
classroom discussion about the lessons of the program. Interns receive a
stipend and are reimbursed for travel expenses.

Am I eligible?
· Will you be enrolled in a degree-granting program during the
semester you wish to participate in the internship?

· Is your college within a four-hour driving distance from New York

· Do you have a minimum of one week day per week entirely free to
commit to the program?

· Completed application (available at:
<> ), including
application page, essays, resumé, letter of recommendation (may be sent
separately), and a copy of your transcript (may be sent separately).

The application deadline for the fall semester is April 1, 2012 (training in
late August). The application deadline for the spring semester is November
1, 2012 (training in early January).

Graduating Art Historians? Get an internship in Museum Education at the Brooklyn Museum to launch your career

February 27, 2012

10-month Museum Education Internship at Brooklyn Museum Application Deadline March 31, 2012

Brooklyn Museum is offering full-time, ten-month internship positions in Museum Education from September 6, 2012 through June 20, 2013. The Museum’s Education Division has long been a pioneer in museum education, designing creative interpretive programs that address the needs of diverse audiences. Intern educators receive intensive training in museum education pedagogy and practice from Museum staff members who monitor, observe, and guide their professional development. Intern Educators lead the majority of the Museum’s guided gallery visits for school groups and play an integral role in the planning and implementation of educational programs for school, youth and family, or adult audiences. Regularly scheduled workshops introduce Intern Educators to other Brooklyn Museum departments and education programs at other New York City institutions. Interns receive a stipend of $15,273 (subject to payroll taxes), health insurance, and NYC public transportation for the duration of the internship.

Applicants should be college graduates with an interest in working with diverse museum audiences and/or teaching from art objects. Intern Educators are required to work full-time, including one weekend day. All applicants must be eligible to work in the United States and are responsible for securing their own immigration documents. The Museum will not sponsor immigrant visa applications, although in the past, Intern educators have worked with international student organizations to secure non-immigrant visas. Proof of the applicant’s ability to work in the United States must be submitted to the Museum before the start of work.

Candidates are invited to apply to work as School, Youth and Family Programs Intern Educators (SYFP) or Adult and School Programs Intern Educators (ASP):

School, Youth and Family Programs Intern Educators (SYFP) service the community through a variety of programs including guided gallery visits for school groups, drop-in weekend programs for families, and art-making classes. By working with these audiences in the Museum’s galleries and assisting in program planning and the development of educational materials, SYFP Intern Educators gain valuable experiences that prepare them for a variety of professions.

Adult and School Programs Intern Educators (ASP) assist in all aspects of expanding the Museum’s local adult audiences, including researching, programming, marketing, and logistical support, as well as teaching guided gallery visits for school groups. The Adult Programs (AP) Department develops programs such as gallery talks, workshops, lectures, film and performing arts series for special exhibitions and the permanent collection.

To apply for the ten-month Museum Education Internship Program send one envelope containing a résumé, statement of interest (including your preference for SYFP or ASP placement, and two signed and sealed letters of recommendation) to:

Education Intern Coordinator

Gallery Maum is pleased to present a joint exhibition named ‘CONNECTIONS.’
Life is about being connected, especially as humans we interact with each
other and our environment.
As artists we try to connect to the deeper meanings of life using our chosen
medium and often connect things that appear initially opposed to each other.
All of the five artists are connected in these aspirations.
We invite the viewer to experience such connections through our artwork.
