TEACHER INTERN

Course ID: 753353
 
Open to grades: 11 - 12
 
UC/CSU eligibility: None
 
Prerequisites: The following are all considered to determine if a student is eligible to enroll as a TI: 3.0 GPA, on track for A-G, good attendance, completed aid application and completion of Personal Finance Course.
 
This course is designed for students who have exceptional skills and talents in a specific subject area. This course provides students with training in the principles of teaching and adolescent psychology. This will afford them an opportunity to apply their skills as tutors and teaching assistants. Instructors will provide an initial orientation in effective teaching techniques. Interns will be expected to work closely with the instructor to whom they are assigned. Regular tutorial assistance to needy students and occasional assistance with instruction will be a minimum expectation. As the development of skills and knowledge expand, interns may take on a greater role. Students must be on target to complete a-g requirements or instructor/admin approval. NOTE: students requesting TI positions must meet all requirements of being a TI, and should have an alternate course chosen in the event that they don't meet eligibility requirements, or if the period and teacher they requested are not available.
