Saskatoon School Principals' Feedback on the Internship Program. Monograph No. 2.
Barnett, Don C.
Saskatoon Catholic and Public School Board principals were asked by the College of Education, University of Saskatchewan, to provide feedback on the university's internship program, specifically, the major positive aspects to be retained and changes or revisions to be considered. Among the characteristics of the program to be retained were the program's support for interns and teachers, openness to feedback, provision of additional human resources in schools, and excellent inservice opportunities for teachers. Recommendations for changes and revisions are categorized under 15 headings, which include: recognition for schools and teachers, multiculturalism and Native studies, common essential learnings, the inservice program, relationship with pre-internship classes, evaluation, placement, withdrawal procedures. Numerous suggestions are made regarding the roles of interns, cooperating teachers, and college supervisors. A response to each recommendation from the perspective of the internship program is provided. (LL)
