Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
This course has a required fieldwork component in local K-12 schools, and students are responsible for their own transportation to and from the schools. Students are required to purchase internship liability insurance to participate in this course. Contact University Insurance & Risk Management for details on acquiring the insurance and the current charge. This course is restricted to Foreign Language Education majors.

Students in Foreign Language Education will be certified by the state for teaching k-12.  Currently, students have two field work observation opportunities: ED 204 and ECI 423.  This is not sufficient for students who should have some observation experience at all three levels. This course serves to provide students with the opportunity to observe at a different level after they have completed ED 204 and ECI 204, but before they begin ECI 423, thus allows for graduating seniors to experience teaching at the K-5, 6-8, and 9-12 classroom.
