UB Linguistics Department Teaching Internship Opportunity

Posted by Tim on November 21, 2017 in Academics, Honors Experiences, Internships

UB Linguistics Department internship (LIN 496) Would you like to earn UB credit, gain valuable teaching experience, and make a contribution to your community at the same time?  The Department of Linguistics at the University at Buffalo is offering a Teaching Internship for the Spring 2018 semester, which places UB undergraduate students in the Buffalo Public Schools as a teacher’s aide or tutor, to work with children on developing their language and literacy skills.  This internship is open to students from any major and grade level, who are native or near-native speakers of English, and have at least a 2.0 GPA.  For three credits, interns work 112 hours over the course of the semester (about 8-10 hours per week), in a classroom or tutoring room in one of the public schools.  Interns can be placed in an early childhood school, an elementary school, a middle school, or a high school; the children in the schools include Spanish-English bilinguals, inner-city children, and international students.  There are also a very few slots for interns to work with school psychologists, counselors, special ed, etc.  (CDS majors interested in working with an SLP should contact their own department first as we expect that those internships will now be handled through CDS.) To find out more about the Linguistics Department internship, or to request an application, please stop by Dr. David Fertig’s office, 638 Baldy Hall (Fall 2017 office hours: Monday and Friday, 1:30–2:30 p.m.) or e-mail him at: fertig@buffalo.edu.
