EXPR 422: Professional Internship Field Experience

The extended practicum is a period of intensive field study experience where interns are expected to develop and demonstrate program outcomes in the categories of professional, knowledge, instructional and curricular competency. Interns will work with one or more co-operating teachers and will function as professionals-in-training, engaging with students and their families, and working alongside colleagues on a regular and in-depth basis, team-teaching, planning units, lessons and other school-based programs, and progressing toward a full teaching load within their school context. Assessment for internship will address Ministry of Education teacher competency goals within the framework of the Professional Growth Portfolio (PGP).
