About Student Teaching

The student teaching internship is designed to be the culminating professional clinical experience for candidates in teacher education. This is a professional development experience during which the intern works in a school context with students. It provides an opportunity for the intern to assume major responsibility for the full range of teaching in an approved school situation under the guidance of qualified personnel from Idaho State University and the cooperating schools.

The internship is scheduled for a full semester. Candidates should not plan to enroll in any additional coursework during the internship semester. No candidate is permitted to enroll in a correspondence or regularly scheduled course during the semester in which s/he is completing the internship without written permission from the Coordinator of the Office of Field Experience. All programs require 14 credits of internship.

The application process begins one year prior to the semester of student teaching.
