    Internship opportunities

    The reading internship provides practical experience in reading for the pre-service teacher. Students will work directly with K-12 teachers and students in the public schools in large group, small group, and individual settings to connect all aspects of theoretical, campus-based literacy instruction to classroom practice. This course is designed to demonstrate specific skills and strategies in reading relative to program planning, instruction, daily scheduling, record keeping, evaluation, classroom management, communication, ethics and professional development.
