Application GER 409 Teaching Internship: Fun with German!

*See our "Fun with German" Youtube video below!*

Our extremely successful Internship Program “Fun with German” with local schools has been running since 2003 for advanced students in order to raise more awareness of German language, culture, and thought locally, and to prepare our students for a teaching profession.

In collaboration with Eugene public schools, the Department of German and Scandinavian is excited to offer a German-teaching internship program for dedicated undergraduate majors or minors in German who enjoy working with children and possess a high proficiency in the language. GER 409 students employ new and fundriven teaching approaches in settings from Pre-School through sixth grade levels, and will act as ambassadors for GERSCAN working towards our mission of promoting global citizenship across all curriculums. The program will run through both Winter and Spring terms of 2021. In order to prepare for the assignment, students will receive preparatory training during the Winter Term, followed by 4-5 weeks of teaching during Spring Term, and around the sixth week students will present a report about their teaching experiences. Over two terms, students are expected to earn 4 total credits.
