Education Internship Extension in PlymouthUnited Kingdom
April 15-May 2
As a supplement to its Education curriculum, the College of Education and Human Performance has developed a study abroad program for UCF students interested in comparative educational methods in Plymouth, UK. This program is an exciting opportunity for UCF undergraduate students to gain firsthand experience in comparative educational methods and differential instruction. The program functions as an extension of the Internship II course (ESE 4941 or ESE 4943). Students will first participate in a required 10 week internship course in the Florida school system, which will then be followed by an additional 3 week observation program with schools in Plymouth. Working in conjunction with the University of St. Mark and St. John in Plymouth and faculty from the UCF College of Education and Human Performance, students will have the opportunity to observe and interact with very diverse classroom environments.
While abroad, participants will engage in observation and classroom instruction within their assigned primary or secondary schools. They also will complete a classroom project associated with their experience while engaging in community and cultural activities. This program is open to undergraduate students who, while in the United Kingdom, will be expected to remain engaged in the program’s experiences and try new things.
