EFLD 405 - Internship

Required of all elementary students in all programs leading to a BEd or a BEAD. Can be taken either semester although usually taken in the fall semester for a total of 16 weeks.

Building from EFLD 311, EFLD 405 referred to as "Internship Practicum" is a 16 week course of intensive full-time teaching under the supervision of a cooperating teacher and faculty advisor.

* Interns take responsibility for teaching and assessing one curriculum area from the very start of the practicum.
* Gradually the intern accepts more responsibility for all curricula and classroom management with a three week block being designated as intern full-time teaching with ancillary responsibilities.
* The intern and cooperating teacher participate in a one and a half day seminar to hone a variety of skills, to set up a contract of responsibilities and to coordinate the calendar for the internship.
* Throughout the practicum the intern and cooperating teacher communicate on all aspects of the intern's professional and personal development with emphasis on pedagogical skills, professional competencies and demeanour, management and interactions with students, staff, parents and community

PREREQUISITES: Completion of pre-internship year and EFLD 311. Permission from the Program Area is required to register.
