Overview

Reflections: Preparing for Your Practicum and Internship empowers students to direct their own search for an internship, and to launch their transition into the field itself. As internships have increased in number, scope, and type, the need for guidance for students has also increased. With instructors having limited time with each student, Reflections: Preparing for Your Practicum and Internship will provide the necessary guidance for students to explore the possibilities more independently.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I like the emphasis on professionalism, work standards, and ethics. The order of topics in chapters 1 though 8 is very logical from preparation to practice and finally assessment and evaluation. This will help prepare the students for their first internship experience."

"This book contains pertinent information for college students in their practicum and field experience. I can see the benefits for my 2nd year students as they complete their Student Teacher Participation. This book gives an overview of the important concepts when considering a field placement. I am impressed with the topics: Professional Standards, Code of Ethics, and Skills of Assimilation."

"The greatest strengths of this text are the inclusion of goal setting, theories to assist in moving from knowledge to practice, the encouragement of journaling and ethical considerations." - Jorja Davis, B.A.Ed., M.S.L.S., M.Ed, Instructor, Blinn College, Texas
