EDU 526 - Internship and Seminar I


Prerequisites: None
The internship and accompanying seminar form the backbone of the year-long teacher residency experience. This experience is divided into Fall (EDU 526) and Spring (EDU 606 ) segments. In EDU 526, student interns work in classrooms with their cooperating teachers four full days/week. Weekly seminar meetings provide a framework for examining the philosophical underpinnings necessary for making meaning of everyday classroom experiences and teaching practices. The curriculum is based on the Rhode Island Professional Teaching Standards (RIPTS) and the Gordon School Guiding Principles of Multicultural Practice, and progress is measured using the continuum of teacher development. Time is built in for reflection and guided inquiry, applications of theory learned in course work, and discussion of data and other forms of evidence gathered in classrooms. Interns are encouraged to pose and answer questions, and develop and refine their practice.
