Program Description:
Student Teach in Costa Rica and Mexico
CR!
 
The student teaching abroad experience is a 15-week long internship in schools abroad that fulfills the student teaching requirement for graduation and recommendation for certification at Oklahoma State University. Student teaching abroad, including experiences in Costa Rica and Mexico, offers an opportunity for pre-service teachers to learn how to teach while providing them with an opportunity to broaden their perspectives on education, culture, and language. It also provides an opportunity for students to develop cross-cultural competence, work with diverse learners, and acquire global skills. Students also have the opportunity to travel and explore their host country as well as neighboring ones.

Since 2003 over two hundred OSU students have performed their student teaching practicum in eitheCosta Ricaor Mexico.The goal of the international internship program is to expand the personal and professional experience of students to enrich their global perspectives as teachers.  In addition, experience student teaching abroad can help students incorporate international experiences in their professional career. Likewise, experience student teaching abroad can increase a student’s employability domestically as school administrators seek teachers who can meet the student needs of culturally diverse classrooms.

  These semester-long internships are available to Elementary and Secondary Education and Health and Human Performance    majors during the last semester of an undergraduate teaching program and fulfill the requirements for teaching certification. Between three and twelve students are placed at a site. Students on this program are required to use a buddy-system and can enjoy traveling on their weekends and breaks. However, travel opportunities in advance or immediately after the internship are limited due to program requirements in Stillwater. EHA faculty accompany students to their teaching sites and return halfway through the internship for observations.
