How many days a week should I expect to be in schools for internships?
December 23, 2009
For the “micro internships” that take place at the start of the program, students are expected to spend one full day a week in placements. For the “macro internship” that takes place during the final year of the program, students are expected to spend two full days a week in placements.
Students who are in track II and need to complete the teaching practicum will also spend one full day a week in their practicum placement focused on the teaching requirements.
The exact schedules for internships and the practicum are determined at the start of the internship and are based on an agreement between the student and the supervising mentor counselor/teacher at the school placement.
