What is CalStateTEACH Really Like?
Once admitted, you'll receive detailed registration materials explaining a variety of procedures.
You will work in a K-12 classroom either as a student teacher or as an intern or private school teacher.
After your program begins, you will be emailed codes to request your iPad, your apps and your E-Textbooks.
You will attend a day-long Saturday orientation seminar conducted at a location near you. There you'll meet your regional faculty and fellow students. You'll learn everything you need to know in order to get started.
Throughout the program you will log on to the program website to access the online study guide and communicate with fellow candidates and faculty with e-mail, videoconferencing, online discussion forums, chat rooms, and social media.
You will spend about 25-30 hours per week working on CalStateTEACH assignments outside of the work you do teaching in your classroom.
Your assigned CSU faculty member will supervise you at least once a month to observe and assist you. Your on-site mentor is available to help you on a regular basis.
You will complete assignments organized into modules to demonstrate your academic achievements. Your academic, on-line and classroom performance are evaluated by your assigned faculty member. You will also complete a professional website.
