EDUC 4140 Student Teaching Internship/Seminar and Portfolio Assessment

The internship is a full-semester teaching experience in a field placement. It is designed to apply learning about professional knowledge, humanistic practices, and reflective thinking to classroom situations on a full-time basis for one semester. Students are observed a minimum of eight times by a University supervisor who regularly reviews student journals. A once a week, one hour and forty minute seminar accompanies the internship and has three goals: 1) discussion and reflection of current issues and students’ teaching experiences, while brainstorming solutions to classroom problems; 2) creation of an e-portfolio; for K-5, students link artifacts to ten New Jersey Teaching Standards and are guided in writing reflective statements for each standard; for P-3, students link artifacts to the NAEYC teaching standards; the Seminar instructor provides evaluates and provides feedback on each portfolio using a rubric; and 3) career development information is also made available (e.g., resume writing, interviewing skills, organizing credential files). Students will be charged an additional Student Teaching Fee when enrolling in this course.
