EDUC7590: Special Education Internship

Credits 4

This course is an extended period of applied study under the supervision of an on-site supervisor with the support of a graduate faculty member, and it includes a seminar. Two options will be available. The first option is a traditional one-term student teaching experience with a cooperating teacher. The second option is designed to accommodate the intern who is currently employed as a Special Education Teacher while working to obtain certification. The intern may take a semester of intensive supervision in the classroom in which he/she is teaching (in-classroom placement) and an additional two weeks of observations in other special education classrooms/settings (out-of-classroom requirement). The out-of-classroom requirement may be scheduled within the semester of in-class interning.
