Sophia Institute online Teacher Training Certificate Studies Program
Supervising Teacher / Internship Supervisor / Evaluation of Intern Form
The Internship is the actual teaching practice for students enrolled in the Sophia Institute Program and should be closely related to the work which a student is engaged in in the field of education. The purpose of the internship is to enable the student to think reflectively about the work in education, and to assist the student in integrating theory with practice in the field. The internship should achieve the goals set for the student's professional development through reflective processes, through consultation with other teachers, colleagues and the student's mentor, in addition to reading and discussion the student should see and experience the work from new perspectives and will learn both how to value and how to re-evaluate what the student is doing.
What are the Expectations on the Part of Sophia Institute for the Supervising Teacher? Ideally the internship is being arranged with one supervising teacher at the internship site. The supervising teacher introduces the intern to the internship and accompanies the intern during the internship making sure that the intern is informed of all requirements for participation in the day to day activities of the internship site including legal requirements such as background checks, etc.
Sophia Institute will contact the supervising teacher for input after the completion of the internship for the final report and assessment of the internship.
