Boise State intern teachers attended a language acquisition seminar focused on supporting linguistic diversity on Monday at the SUB.
Led by Boise State faculty, the teacher candidates discussed how to effectively plan for linguistic diversity, academic language support, and EL instruction. They also practiced using the lens of equity to differentiate instructional design.
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.
