Physical Education Internship

All teacher candidates in physical education are required by the state of South Carolina to complete field-based experiences. At Winthrop, these experiences are comprised of two components. The first places students in appropriate level classrooms one or two days per week over a 14-week period in observation and tutorial roles. The second consist of 60 full days of student teaching under the guidance of a certified teacher. Teacher candidates in physical education split their internship between two different levels during the 14 week experience. All teacher candidates spend seven weeks at the k-5 level with the second seven weeks in either the middle or secondary levels.
