Noyce Scholars and Supervision in COVID-19
The final clinical internship is an intensive period of development, practice, and performance for any teacher candidate in the best of times. The Covid-19 Pandemic presented many challenges during this academic year; imagine what teacher candidates have experienced through all of this. In this video, we hear from one of the USF-Noyce Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) teacher candidates as well as her university supervisor. They each discuss the positive outcomes that emerged as a result of the work to address and rectify the many challenges students have faced, especially in terms of financial concerns. The Pandemic has certainly posed a time of hardship for students and teachers alike. However, through culturally responsive approaches, intentional planning and teaching for equity, and empathy, the teacher candidates not only survived, but they also emerged as skilled mindful classroom science teachers with stronger dedication to enhancing the academic lives of their students.
