Selecting and Developing Internship Sites for Child Development Interns Which Demonstrate Developmentally Appropriate Practices.
Shelton, Barbara Payne
This practicum report describes the development of a systematic method whereby students would be able to select internship sites that demonstrate developmentally appropriate practices in early childhood education. Students in a child development internship program were provided guidelines for selecting an appropriate field placement; students were also given an inventory with which to evaluate potential sites. Using evaluation tools that included questionnaires, checklists, and self-evaluation forms, students were able to select developmentally appropriate placements and to identify both appropriate and inappropriate practices in the classroom. Appendices include: (1) a copy of the internship placement questionnaire and a summary of student interns' questionnaire responses; (2) an inventory of classroom practices; (3) evaluation forms for cooperating teachers, students, placement sites, and college internship supervisors; (4) student guidelines for selecting internship placements; (5) a handbook for the internship program; (6) a preliminary letter to interns; and (7) letters to cooperating teachers.
