OVERVIEW

Student Teaching Internship, EED455 serves as the capstone course for 12 credits.  It entails a full semester assignment to a school district and cooperating teacher. This assignment is full days, every day. During this time period, 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.

All placements for the student teaching internship will require an interview with the cooperating teacher prior to the beginning of the final field placement.  The placements must be arranged through the Director of School and Field Services since that is the arrangement that has been made with districts.  In the elementary program, generally students have their final field placement with their potential cooperating teacher for the internship the following semester.

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 classroom one subject at a time and teach independently for five weeks.

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 student teaching. 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.
