OK guys, fill me in. what do you mean “interns”. My knowledge is of the UK, Canada and Australian systems of teacher education, and we have teacher trainig placements, which is part of your teacher education, so you don’t get paid for it (usually). There’s also the kind of student-teachers / trainee-teachers who do get paid through (problematic) programs like “Teach First” in the UK. But both these kind of programs are on the way towards accreditation (teacher degree). I guess you could call a student-teacher an “intern” but i mean, i think that language is problematic.
) in the notes said they have interns at their school, who refuse to do teacher training (?!) but are paid (!?!)… so like, are they teaching assistants??? which are different. teaching assistants are a real thing. what do you mean, refuse to do their training?? no snark intended, i’m honestly confused and curious.
thanks in advance for the replies!
EDIT/UPDATE: i’ll be responding to some of the notes in the notes (the handle is “phd-teacher”, not iamyourteacher because that’s my primary account, stupid tumblr), so i might have responded to something you said!
