  24. Course Description: This seminar accompanies the graduate internship in mathematics education and provides teacher candidates an opportunity to interact with peers and university faculty regarding classroom experiences.

  25. Please briefly explain why it is necessary and/or desirable to add this course: At present, graduate interns have not been required to enroll in a seminar to accompany their internship. This is in contrast to the undergraduate prospective teachers. The faculty believe that graduate students completing an internship would also benefit

  27. Has this course been offered as Selected Topics/Experimental Topics course? If yes, how many times? none
  28. What qualifications for training and/or experience are necessary to teach this course? (List minimum qualifications for the instructor.) Doctorate in mathematics education
  29. Objectives: 1. The ability to examine and reflect on one's instructional plans;

    2. Familiarity with the responsibilities of teachers (e.g., assessment, classroom management, etc.);

    3. The ability to take part in the school culture (e.g., professional development activities and meetings).
