Teaching Internship / Early Field Experience

Teaching Internship / Early Field Experience
ACTS336

This course places qualified students who are interested in art and education, in a choice of structured internship positions in kindergarten through twelfth grade (K–12) public school classes. Students observe and assist teachers with a “Single Subject Art Credential” in their classrooms and have significant interactions with students from diverse populations, as required by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing in the state of California. The internship provides an opportunity to expand one’s understanding of education theory in conjunction with the reality of art curricula in the studio/ classroom, and will include shared analysis and debriefings of reflective field annnotations through electronic journal. This internship is also a chance to establish contacts and begin networking with potential mentors in several local public school districts. Required for students in the Teacher Credential Preparation Minor. Can be taken as an elective for all other students (three hours a week in class or in the field).
