MG5960 - Mathematics Teaching Internship

Credits: 1 - 9
This course is repeatable.

This course is the culminating field-based teaching experience for teacher certification students in the Master of Education (MEd) in mathematics or Post Baccalaureate, Middle or Secondary Education programs. Students must have completed early field-based experiences and all coursework for the certification, including any required undergraduate competencies, before taking this course. Teacher candidates pursuing an internship will gradually assume responsibility for a full range of teaching activities encountered in a school situation. Internship provides an opportunity for demonstrating the appropriate professional skills, attitudes and dispositions essential for successful teaching. The teaching field experience is conducted under the supervisory guidance of mentor teacher and university supervisor. An online seminar compliments the experience. Certification candidates who are not pursuing the M.Ed. must have submitted passing scores on the Core Academic Skills for Educators to the College of Graduate Studies office before enrolling. All candidates who will be required to take Praxis II for NH Certification must make arrangements for that testing independently.

Prerequisite(s): Completion of all other program requirements for certification by the beginning of the internship semester; permission of the Coordinator of Teacher Certification and Clinical Experiences; and Mathematics Department Program Coordinator.
