The internship is the most important part of the MAT program. Knowledge learned from coursework is applied to planning, instruction, assessment and other professional situations allowing interns the opportunity to analyze, synthesize, and reflect on their practice. The collaborative work of interns, mentor teachers, university supervisors and university faculty is integral to the process.



This section of the program site provides information and resources for interns, mentor teachers, and university supervisors. Guidelines and procedures for internships and suggestions for effective supervision of interns are also included. Please use the tabs on the left to view materials.
