EDU 2100 - Internship in an Ethnically Diverse Setting

Credits: 2
The purpose of the Jan Term Teaching Internship in a Diverse Setting is to provide candidates with an internship experience in a more diverse setting than nearby Professional Development Schools can provide. Field practicum experiences in courses prior to the semester-long student teaching internship, as well as the student teaching internship itself, are scheduled in schools near the McDaniel College campus in order to facilitate transportation logistics. These schools within a reasonable commute distance do not allow for the ethnic diversity in the student population that teachers may encounter during their careers. The Jan Term requirement provides an additional experience that is critical to a teacher’s success in the classrooms of most communities. It also assists candidates in meeting Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (INTASC) Principle 3: The teacher understands how students differ in their approaches to learning and creates instructional opportunities that are adapted to diverse learners and McDaniel College’s Conceptual Framework. Outcome 2: McDaniel College prepares knowledgeable, caring, and reflective practitioners who use their self-awareness and knowledge of diversity to create learning environments that support their belief that all students can learn.
Note: For admitted Education major/minor candidates only.
