The Washington Center (TWC) runs a full-time internship program in Washington, D.C., that is open to all UW students (all majors welcome) and provides comprehensive service, including internship placement and housing. Placements include government agencies, corporations, nonprofits, museums and international organizations. Hundreds of UW students have participated in this program since UW's affiliation in 1977, and many made connections that led to post-degree employment.
At the informational meetings, a Washington Center representative and I will discuss the structure of the program, scholarships and the application process.
For 2013 the quarterly program cost is $5,995 and the housing cost is $3,985. In addition, students pay for 15 UW credits, transportation, and personal expenses. Students are eligible to use their financial aid for this program and many scholarships are available that can bring the cost of attending close to the cost of a quarter at UW. For Autumn 2013, TWC guarantees a scholarship of at least $2500 for all UW students.
TWC's facilities are accessible to students who have disabilities. In addition, their Disability Services Coordinator will assist with accommodation at the internship and programming sites.
These are the upcoming application deadlines (for a full list of organizations that have earlier deadlines see

UCDS Resident Program: Our Support for Faculty New to Teaching
The Resident Teacher Program offers a year-long, intensive, hands-on teaching experience. The Program allows professionals who enter the field to engage in teaching and school-wide responsibilities with the guidance and support of experienced teachers.
Program components include:
- In classroom teaching experience
- Mentoring from experienced teachers
- Professional development workshops
- Resident meetings as a forum for support and encouragement from peers as well as well as reviewing teaching theory and practice
Resident Teachers work full time in a classroom for one school year. They join the faculty in mid-August, starting with a week-long college level math course. During the next week they begin the partnership with their mentor teacher and other teachers on their level team to prepare for the beginning of the school year. From the start, Residents are included in all planning, preparation, discussion, and curricular decisions with their teaching teams. The focus on collaboration and teamwork is at the heart of the school's culture..
Residents work with teachers at all grade levels, serve on faculty committees, and help plan school-wide projects. Our focus on teamwork demands collegial, highly professional working relationships.
Teaching at UCDS is individualized and responsive to the talents of each student. The curriculum is emergent; themes are built around the strengths, interests and questions of the students. The education is dynamic, exciting, relevant and useful. Classrooms are multi-age; children in each classroom work at different levels, set individualized goals, take academic risks, and mentor each other. Residents are an integral part of this innovation. They bring new ideas and educational theories to school discussions, enriching not only their own experience but also the experience of the entire school community.
The Resident Program provides a multi-layered support network. Residents meet regularly with the Resident Coordinators and weekly with their mentor teacher(s). In addition, the Resident Coordinators host Resident Meetings three times a month. Residents are encouraged to share ideas, ask questions and gather support from their fellow residents and guidance from the Resident Coordinators. The Resident Coordinators set a calendar of topics that center on professional development and also parallel the educational developments of students during the school year. In a typical year, Residents will have meetings concerning various topics, which may include:
- Workshops on learning theory, narrative report writing and understanding children's motivation and behavior..
- Readings and discussion of topical articles from national publications.
- Workshops on Visual Thinking Strategies designed to support thoughtful facilitation, active listening and open-ended questioning.
- A year-end retreat designed to synthesize the year's experiences and set the course for continued professional growth.
In addition to meetings specific to Residents, the professional development opportunities available to the faculty and staff through the Teacher Education Center are offered to Residents as well. Each year, Residents attend the annual UCDS Summer Math Workshop, the PNAIS fall conference, and all in-service days and faculty meetings.
