- LTEC 4740/LTEC 6701 (Instructional Internship - Must enroll in both the fall and spring semesters)
- Completion of ATTD 5900 - Special Problems. This course prepares students for Domains I-IV of the TExES examinations.
For LTEC courses, refer to the LTEC schedule of classes for a list of course availability.
* Pedagogy and Professional Responsibilities (PPR) courses
Once you have accepted a teaching position, you must enroll in your Instructional Internship (LTEC 4740/LTEC 6701) course. The Instructional Internship courses are offered only during the Fall and Spring semesters.
The Instructional Internship is very much like a "student teaching" experience except that you will be the "instructor of record" teaching in your classroom. We will work with you to select a campus-based mentor. A university supervisor will oversee your first year of teaching.
You should be able to complete your required certification courses in one year.
You will need to purchase a Tk20 account.
