The purpose of the Elementary Internships is to provide an opportunity for initial candidates to obtain experience in the teaching and assessment of social studies, reading and language arts, mathematics, and science.

The purpose of the Early Childhood Unified (ECU) Internships is to provide an opportunity for candidates to obtain experience in the teaching and assessment of art, music, health/P.E., social studies, language development, math and science.

Beginning Fall 2016, ECU and Special Education minors will be required to take TESP 360: Principles of Instruction in Special Ed & Clinical Immersion Birth-Grade 12 as an internship course in addition to other required internships.

Pedagogic skills like management of a classroom, making adjustments for individual student needs, utilizing developmentally appropriate practices, and reflecting on performance are enhanced under the supervision of education faculty and quality mentor teachers.
