International Study Opportunity
Goals: The goals of the ISO program include the following:
- To demonstrate the interrelatedness of diverse populations (locally, regionally, nationally, and globally).
- To gain a broader perspective on diverse learners, curriculum, and school settings.
- To apply teaching and learning research and theory.
Description: The ISO Option includes three components:
- An eleven-week traditional, accelerated student teaching experience during which time the student teacher must (a) complete a minimum of four-weeks of successful full-day teaching, (b) complete all program-specific student teacher requirements, (c) earn a satisfactory performance in the accelerated student teaching experience.
- A four-week international student teaching experience during which time the student teacher must complete a set of ISO competency activities at a satisfactory level. See list of competencies.
- Presentations of the experience are made to university faculty, school faculty, peers and community.
The official final grade recommendation for the combined components of the ISO Option (“unsatisfactory” or “satisfactory”) will be determined by the student teachers’ level of attainment of the criteria set for the three components of the experience described above.
