This course meets for 2 periods a day with an early release so students can attend off-campus. This program gives students a “hands on” opportunity to explore a career in education. Following several weeks of orientation on educational theories/philosophies and issues in education, including discipline, instructional methodology, school law, confidentiality and characteristics of the school aged child, students are placed with a cooperating teacher in a primary, intermediate, junior high or middle school for two hours a day, four days a week. One day a week the interns remain at their home school to discuss experiences, share insights, problem solve with one another and develop a portfolio.
