The Gahanna Undergraduate Internship Program.
Otterbein Coll., Westerville, OH.; Capital Univ., Columbus, OH.
This pilot program represents a joint effort by the community of Gahanna, Ohio Otterbein College, and Capital University to develop a full-year internship within a 4-year baccalaureate program that would involve three students in elementary teacher education from each college. Temporary teaching certificates were obtained for the six interns, who accrued a year towards retirement, and the students were informed of the possibility of their being hired as second-year teachers. Both colleges provide on-site instruction for all interns as well as for those teachers who wish to enroll in the program. Weekly observations by both college coordinators provide for exchanges among the classroom teacher, the intern, and the college coordinator. In-service programs are planned for those involved in the internship as well as for other teachers in the system. (Author/JA)
