Support and Guidance

Support and guidance will be provided for each teacher intern. The instructional team for the collaborative program, including the Intern Director, the Seminar Instructors, and the school-based Support Provider, will offer advisement and support to the teacher interns. In addition, the University Supervisor will visit each teacher intern’s classroom, provide feedback and conduct progress reports and evaluations.

Transfer of Credit

When a candidate transfers from the Traditional Single Subject Credential Program to the Intern Program and has already received credit for SED 554 and SED 554S, those courses will substitute for SED 592 and SED 594S in the Intern Program. This occurs because the Preliminary Teaching Event is completed in both. The candidate would be required to enroll in and pass SED 593 and SED 593S before qualifying for SED 555I and SED 555S.

Similarly, when a candidate transfers from the Intern Program to he Traditional Program and has already received credit for SED 593 and SED 593S and SED 94 and SED 594S, in the Intern Program, the SED 554 and SED 554S are not required in the Traditional Program prior to enrolling in SED 555 and SED 555S. If only SED 593 and SED 593S have been completed in the Intern Program, but not SED 594 and SED 594S, then the candidate will be required to complete the SED 554 and SED 554S in the Traditional Program before qualifying for SED 555 and SED 555S.
