This course is the final professional experience in the Sign Language Education program and is a required field experience consisting a minimum of forty-five (45) consecutive teaching hours. During this experience, the student teacher is mentored by a cooperating faculty and by an university supervisor. Students with extensive sign language teaching experience, and with approval of the department, may undertake an on-the-job internship placement. A required seminar is conducted regularly to share teaching challenges, celebrate successes and to exchange useful teaching techniques.
