Deaf Awareness Club
This club seeks to create a supportive community through exposure to and the exchange of ideas related to the field of deaf education. Members are encouraged to create and take part in volunteer opportunities in order to spread knowledge and awareness about deaf culture.
Prior to their internship experience, all students must have completed the department requirements, which include completing the application for an education internship, maintaining a 2.5 GPA, passing of the state-required general knowledge exam, submitting the portfolio, successfully completing all coursework, and finally, passing all sections of the Florida Teacher Certification Examinations specific to their area of certification.
After all of these requirements have been satisfied, students enter their internship for a period of 16 weeks. The configuration of this internship depends upon the area of certification pursued by the student. Students who are in a single degree and certification area (e.g. elementary education) will be placed in one classroom for a total of sixteen weeks. Students who are in a dual certification program (e.g. deaf education/elementary education) will be placed in one classroom for each certification area for eight weeks each. This means the student will be in an elementary classroom with hearing children for eight weeks and an elementary classroom with deaf children for eight weeks.
