STUDENT TEACH ABROAD THROUGH COST
Are you student teaching in Fall 2017 or Spring 2018? Have you ever thought about student teaching abroad? EIU is a member of the Consortium for Overseas Student Teaching (COST). COST is a collaboration of 15 colleges and universities in the United States that provides opportunities for quality student teaching experiences with supervision in overseas settings. Eastern is the only member from Illinois. Student teaching overseas offers you the opportunity to not only complete your student teaching requirement, but to do so while living in another country. You will gain an international perspective on education and experience a culture different from that of the United States. Take advantage of this opportunity to teach students in another area of the world and learn from them as they learn from you. Students selected to participate in the COST program will complete one-half of their student teaching in an Illinois school and one-half in an international placement. If you are interested in learning more about the program and/or applying to participate, go the EIU's COST Web page. The deadline for applications for Fall 2017/Spring 2018 student teaching through COST is Oct. 31, 2016.
