Intern teachers design lessons to support linguistic diversity

Spring 2017 Boise State Lesson Design SeminarBoise State intern teacher candidates attended a Lesson Design Seminar focused on supporting linguistic diversity on Monday, February 6th at the Meridian Center.

Led by Boise State faculty, the intern teachers learned how to effectively plan for linguistic diversity, academic language support, and EL instruction. Faculty also performed an ‘edudrama’ for the intern teacher group to model a collaborative planning session.

Intern teachers are typically in their first semester of their professional year, and complete a minimum of 380 hours in the classroom. Combined with the student teaching semester, professional year teacher candidates complete a minimum of 1,000 hours in the classroom over the course of the final program year.
