Update for Fieldwork Internships

We know full-time students are anxious to find out their fieldwork placements, and we have a great group of teachers who are eager to welcome you!  Please be patient as we finalize details.  At orientation, you’ll have a chance to share interests and preferences.  Then you will begin in your schools during the week of September 12.  Please reserve the mornings of that week so you’ll have flexibility in scheduling your first visit.  A supervisor will accompany you initially.

Remember you will arrange your schedule with your cooperating teacher, logging 10-12 hours over four days of the week.  Your time in the classroom will include both reading and writing workshops as well as other literacy related instruction.  Your internship will continue through the semester.

Our students are placed at Teachers College Reading and Writing Project public schools in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, and the Bronx.  All schools are accessible by public transportation.  Please do not request specific schools. During second semester, you will have a complementary fieldwork experience, typically in a different grade and at a different school.

Much more information will be shared soon.
