OVERVIEW

FORMS

The Secondary Teacher Education Program (STEP) culminates in a twelve credit yearlong teaching internship, SED455.  This internship includes both classes and field experiences.  The internship is organized around public school calendars and divides the year into approximately four quarters.  During the first half of the year (roughly corresponding to the first public school semester and the university fall semester) interns are required to be at their school placement for approximately one half day, each day, and to assume instructional responsibility for two classes by about the start of the second marking period (assuming a four marking period calendar).  Students then intern full-time during the Oakland University winter semester (corresponding to the third public school marking period in a four marking period system).  Although they are encouraged to take advantage of all school activities associated with their districts, students are required to be at school only during the stated times.  Students are permitted to work during the internship year at any and all times they are not committed to the field experiences or associated classes.

SED 455 requires daily attendance in the field during the entire internship year, including half day participation at school for August through December and full day participation during Oakland’s winter semester, January through April. During this year, your schedule is determined by the calendar of the district to which you are assigned. You begin when they begin, and have vacations when theirs are scheduled.

During your student teaching internship, you have the opportunity to work with a cooperating teacher who will model expectations for you. You will gradually take over the one subject or one hour at a time and teach independently for the winter semester.

To continue to improve, talk about what went well and ways to overcome areas that didn't go as well as you had hoped. The relationship with your cooperating teacher is critical to your internship. Put suggestions into practice right away. Learn what you need to stop doing and what you need to do more in order to be successful.

Remember to be prepared with lesson plans by Thursday of the week prior to teaching the lessons. Do your best to stay at school until all materials are prepared for the following day. Participate in the school setting as a teacher would during your internship.

Supervisors
During your student teaching internship, you will have a supervisor from Oakland University to help guide you. You will communicate with your supervisor at least weekly, sharing a reflection about your work. During seminars, you will have time to talk with your supervisor. Five or more visits to the classroom will be made by your supervisor. He or she will talk with you about what they observed and will talk with your cooperating teacher as well. Take time to learn from your supervisor’s experience and incorporate suggestions that are shared.
