This course is part of the UO Literacy Initiative, a service learning program of the UO English
Department. In Literacy Initiative courses, students do volunteer work in the community and
compare their community experiences to their reading and classroom learning. English 404, your
co-requisite internship, is 3-12 hours per week (1-4 credits), teaching and mentoring kids from
babies to age 21 (your choice of age group). You have your choice of sites from the public
schools to homeless shelters and juvenile detention. You should have received an email and
internship site selection list from Dr. Wheeler and Ms. Hoffmann after you enrolled in the class.
You should make contact with a site supervisor and start your placement by the second week of
class at the latest, and preferably before then. Internship contracts are due Friday of Week 2.
