This course is designed to introduce the pre-service teacher to the climate and culture, expectations, activities, professional skills, and personal attributes of effective teachers in public schools. Students participate in a part-time clinical experience in a school-based classroom setting while completing co-requisite coursework at SSC.

Emphasis is placed on Reading, ESOL, competencies of the FTCE certification examinations, and the FEAPs. Supervising teachers and SSC coordinators observe the intern and provide feedback on their performance. The course involves a minimum of 14 hours per week of directed and supervised field experience in an approved school setting.
