Internship report university of west florida

History

Internship Report

Following the completion of the internship fieldwork phase, students will prepare a comprehensive internship report. While the completed product will contain the culmination of appropriate research, analytical, and communication skills, the final summation will address the value of the experience, insights as to the process, working as a professional, and conclusions to the process. As an academic internship, the report must reflect both conventional and applied history methodologies and approaches. As supporting documentation to the internship, the report should include copies of all materials associated with the experience, a copy of the final product and the student’s internship journal. Similar to formal thesis procedures, the student will complete the process by defending his/her internship before a departmental committee. The report should serve as both an illustration of the intern’s experiences for future activities, and as an example of a successful internship project for future history students.

Report Sections

The report must contain the following sections:

Background/Internship Attainment: Section that describes the student’s coursework, experiences, activities with history projects and the process of securing the internship with the granting institution.

Project Methodologies and Procedures: Comprehensive section that describes the process of completing the internship. This should include, but is not limited to, history “tools” and skills applied during the internship, evaluation of difficulties encountered and discussion of any new concepts that emerged.

Conclusion and Recommendations: Section that addresses what the intern learned through the process. This should include what specifically the student gained from the experience, an evaluation of what activities remain for future projects, a discussion of what worked and what did not work and what additional training or skills would have improved the experience. This section should serve as a reflective presentation designed to explain not only how the student benefited, but also how future students can learn from the experience and use the work as a starting point for future activities.

Internship Journal: Section that provides a daily assessment and discussion of activities completed for the internship. While this can include minutia such as traveling, lodging meals, etc. the purpose of the journal is to provide a reflective forum for understanding the internship and project process, the tools applied and the experiences learned.

Project Product and Appendices: Copy of the completed project materials that the intern submitted to the granting institution. If student completed a non-documentary based project (such as a program, exhibit, display, processed collection, etc.) supporting materials for the project are appropriate. Typically, the final product will contain a bibliography of materials used in the project.

Additional attached appendices should include pertinent materials about the acquisition, production and completion of the project. These should include communications, letters, e-mail copies, maps, photographs, contract copies and a non-product related bibliography as necessary.

Paid internships in new york city internships com

Find Paid Internships in New York City

Are you looking for a Paid internship in New York City? Paid internships are the best way to bridge the gap between going to school and landing great job. Internships can help provide valuable work experience by learning the ropes from more experienced professionals. At the end of your internship, you’ll have relevant experience to help you decide if starting your career in the field of your internship is the right choice for you. It also helps that 7 out of 10 internships result in a full time job offer, which means interning in New York City can also serve as the foundation to landing a full time job in that city after graduation.

Paid summer internships in New York City are pretty common, but don’t expect to be in charge at the end of your internship! Usually, you’ll have to work from the bottom up, but interns are much more likely to get a job offer from the employer they’re interning with. If you decide to intern at a smaller company, you’ll sacrifice the name prestige for other benefits, such as having an opportunity to see your projects go from start to finish. Simply gaining Paid experience is essential in order to provide value and creativity to the team.

Course Completion Required

To Apply For or Buy A License?? or Preference Point and To Hunt

By Colorado statute, everyone born on or after January 1, 1949 who applies for a Colorado hunting license or preference point must have successfully completed an approved hunter education course . 

Why?  To make hunting safer. 

Colorado hunters experienced an average of nine fatal and 24 non-fatal hunting accidents each year during the 1960s. Noting this, the Colorado legislature took action and passed the hunter education course completion requirement in 1970. The effect? In the ’90s, the averages went down to 1.3 fatal and 11 non-fatal hunting accidents. The latest five years, through 2004, averaged 1.6 fatal and 10 non-fatal hunting accidents. 

Hunting is safer in Colorado. Since 1970, over 600,000 students have taken and passed Colorado’s hunter education course. And hunting is now safer across the United States, too, as all states have hunter education programs similar to Colorado’s. (Canada does, also.) 

Safe Hunting Is No Accident

The most basic purpose of a hunter education course is to teach safe, responsible firearm handling in the field, in the vehicle, and in the home after hunting. Through lectures, hands-on activities, and videos, students learn about firearms and ammunition, firearm safety, shooting fundamentals, and firearm and wildlife laws. 

While hunter education courses enable safer hunting, they also help hunters be more successful in their hunts—and emphasize ethical hunting behavior. Subjects covered include hunter responsibility, wildlife identification and management, game care, outdoor survival, and more. Students also receive introductions to hunting with bows and black powder firearms. 

Hunter education courses are recommended for anyone who spends time in the outdoors, whether or not they intend to hunt. Basic outdoor skills acquired in a hunter education course can be invaluable during any outdoor activities. For example, survival basics can help you prepare for and deal with emergencies. And wildlife management lessons provide insight into how and why wildlife agencies manage the resource, particularly by using hunting as a management tool. 

To cover these topics adequately, courses consist of at least ten hours of instruction (as mandated by the law). A Hunter Education Card (or sometimes called a ‘certificate’) is awarded to students who have attended all classes and who pass the final exam and ‘live fire’ exercise.

Volunteer Instructors Make It Happen?

?Become an Important Part of the Program

Skilled, highly trained and certified volunteer Hunter Education instructors—about 500—teach approximately 700 classes each year, with support from CPW personnel and other professionals. Potential volunteer instructors are rigorously screened, interviewed, and investigated through background checks before being accepted for training. After successful completion of training and testing, instructor candidates are required to do ‘student teaching’ with certified instructors; they may then, themselves, be certified as a Colorado Parks and Wildlife Hunter Education Instructor.

Taking periodic training refreshers and skills improvement seminars and workshops is also required of all certified instructors to maintain their classification. But, through these advanced training opportunities, a certified instructor can become a Senior Hunter Education Instructor—and even advance to the Master level!

Colorado Parks and Wildlife is always interested in recruiting new instructors. If you are enthusiastic, want to share your knowledge, like teaching, and are committed to making hunting safer, read the Applicant Information Sheet. then complete the Certification Application to start the process of becoming an Instructor. 

If you have any questions, contact the CPW Hunter Education Office ** or any Colorado Parks and Wildlife office ? . We thank you, in advance, for your interest in the program! (Please know that August-November and January-April are very busy times for the Hunter Education office. Processing of applications received during these periods may take longer than usual.)

    The five secrets to being a special education teacher and still love your job mdash national dissemination center for children with disabilities

    The Five Secrets to Being A Special Education Teacher And Still Love Your Job

    The job of a special education teacher is not an easy one, and additional pressures from budget cuts, new school initiatives, and professional development can be overwhelming. One of our favorite special education teachers, Tim Villegas, shares how he manages to stay positive and connected to kids and families in NICHCY’s latest guest blog.

    ——————

    Do you want to know the secrets to working in Special Education and still love your job? Read on…

    If you are reading this… it probably means that there is still hope for you. Perhaps you are young and not yet jaded by the persistent thumb of the public education system pressed firmly on your back. Perhaps you are an optimist, who tries to see the silver lining in everything. Or perhaps you have already figured out the secrets to working in a job that has little pay, little respect, and little support. Here my five secrets to being a special education teacher who still absolutely loves it.

    1. Understand that it is not about YOU.

    We did not enter into a career in education to become millionaires… In fact, the only people that are really making money in this industry are the test makers (I don’t know that for sure…just venting a little). So… if you did not do it for the money… why are you a special education teacher? I know it was not JUST because teachers have the summer off! How many of us work Extended School Year (ESY), plan and dream about the following school year during the summer?

    We do what we do because we love to work with kids. We do what we do because we enjoy people (or at least I hope we do). When we realize that it is not really about US… it’s about what we can do for other people, our kiddos, our paraprofessionals, our co-teachers, and fellow staff… we can let go of trying to make our situation perfect for us. Being a teacher is a collaborative profession… which brings me to the next secret.

    2. Realize you are not alone.

    There are approximately 3.9 million teachers (including public and private) in the United States. Whether they are special education teachers or not… each one of them has a stake in education as a whole and has an interest in making it better. It can be easy to feel isolated especially if you are special education teacher in a small district. Perhaps you feel alienated by the school staff. You are a vital part of your school community, even if you don’t think you are. Know that there are thousands of teachers… just like you… who are struggling to do the same thing.

    3. Develop your Personal Learning Network (PLN).

    Are you on Facebook. No? Go get an account… I can wait…

    Are you on Twitter. No? Really? Okay… I can spare a minute…

    Are you on Linkedin. Okay… now this may take some time.

    These three social media outlets are VITAL to establishing your leaning community. I understand that this requires you to be somewhat tech savvy… but guess what, folks. Technology is a huge part of the shift in education. If we do not get on board with technology, we are going to be left out in the dust. For more information on how to manage your digital life, you can check out my previous post —>> here .

    The big point here is to connect with people who are interested in the same things and then read, watch, and do.

    4. Have high expectations for yourself and your students.

    Nothing irks me more than hearing a teacher say, “Tthey are never going to get anything out of that!” or “So-and-so should have never been placed in (insert LRE placement here)…they should have been in (insert more restrictive placement) all along!”

    Have some respect for your students that they can learn and will learn when given the correct supports. It is too easy to place the blame on someone else for why a student is in your classroom. Believe that you CAN teach any student! You are a special education teacher for a reason… you want to help realize a student’s potential. If you don’t know how to do it… there are ways to figure it out. Don’t give up on your student or yourself. You will become a better person and a better teacher for it. Where there is a will, there is a way.

    5. Make friends with General Education Teachers and then collaborate with them.

    Okay… this is really the silver bullet. If you are Special Education Teacher and you sit alone in your classroom during your lunch and planning period…. you are missing out on the richness of developing relationships within the school community. Once I opened up myself to know and befriend other teachers who did not teach my kiddos… I saw a whole other world. Sometimes it is easy to segregate ourselves from our school staff, and then, when we don’t feel included or are not invited to things, we point the finger at them.

    Something that has transformed my teaching is to collaborate with general education teachers on lessons that my class and their class can do together. This way…,it is not just about integrating special needs students and typical students…,it is about designing lessons so that EVERYONE can participate and get something meaningful out of it. No longer can we use the excuse… “Well… they won’t get anything out if this.” They WILL because we can set it up for our kids to be successful.

    If we apply these secrets to our education practice… I promise you will love your job. In fact… you may even want to start a blog to write about it. It happened to me.
