Phase III: Professional Internship
Entry into Phase III requires the following criteria.
Application for Internship
If for some reason you did not apply for intent to internship when applying to the program, you must do so before being accepted into Phase III. If you intend to intern during a fall semester, you must apply for internship no later than September 30 the previous fall semester (i.e., if you intend to intern Fall 2011, you will apply for internship by September 30, 2010). If you intend to intern during a spring semester, you must apply for internship no later than January 30 the previous spring semester (i.e., if you intend to intern Spring 2012, you will apply for internship by January 30, 2011).
Registration into Phase III courses requires successful completion of all Phase II requirements: grades of "B-" or higher in all Phase II Professional Studies courses, full admission to the Teacher Education Program, successful completion of all required PRAXIS exams and the Progress Conference, and formal acceptance into internship.
During Phase III Internship, you will become a member of a close-knit cadre of teacher interns, professors, and on-site teacher educators (OSTEs) as you study educational design, facilitation, and assessment. Throughout most of the sixteen weeks of this semester, you will work as a team member with your experienced, on-site teacher educator (OSTE) to plan, deliver, and evaluate secondary school instruction daily. You will be enrolled in ED 460/461: Professional Internship and ED 452: Professional Seminar. Your college supervisor and OSTE(s) will evaluate you in a variety of ways throughout your internship. In special situations, some distant site internships may be available; you may wish to visit with your education advisor regarding your circumstances, the requirements, and process.
