This course gives the students the opportunity to observe, practice, and apply skills and techniques at an introductory level. These opportunities will take place in a variety of supervised placements with teachers who model effective teaching practices and implementation of Minnesota state academic content standards for students. Faculty will work with students to choose internship placement at sites set up with contracts through the college. This internship experience is a crucial part of the education program as it gives the students the opportunity to practice and implement skills learned throughout the program.
