      • Three internships (100+ contact hours) are required prior to student teaching.

    • Develop a knowledge base in their specialty area.

Alex and the advisor meet to discuss Alex’s interests, strengths and weaknesses, goals and aspirations, and barriers and limitations. Later in the semester, Alex receives an email from the advisor regarding advising for registration and schedules an appointment online. Alex comes prepared for the advising session but asks for assistance choosing classes. The advisor gives Alex specific suggestions regarding a schedule that matches Alex’s interests, strengths, and goals.
