Year-long Internship


The year-long internship provides candidates an opportunity to experience multiple facets of professional teaching through two structures:

  1. Following a school district calendar starting at the beginning of the K-12 academic year (this means candidates start when teacher workdays are scheduled in August and follow the district calendar through late April); 
  2. Remaining in one placement/school for both semesters (some K-12 content areas must change grade levels thus have a different placement for Internship II).


Information for university supervisors, mentor teachers, and teacher candidates is available in the Year-long Internship Handbook (under "Handbooks and Guides" at /ceshs/rex/handbooks-and-forms.aspx).


Internship I and Internship II evaluations are key assessments. These are updated annually and posted at /ceshs/rex/handbooks-and-forms.aspx under "Midterm and Final Evaluations." Lesson plan templates for each program area are also posted at this link.
