From Practice to Theory: Strategies for Encouraging Analytic Learning about Concrete Internship Experience.
LeVeen, Deborah
This paper describes strategies developed in the urban studies internship program at San Francisco State University (California). Interns are encouraged to relate practice to theory in their own concrete experience, using their own academic coursework. The strategies involve both structured writing assignments and regular seminar discussion to evoke reflection on a variety of issues and how they relate to the interns' experiences. The paper addresses: (1) a brief description of the context of the course, the students, and academic programs it serves; (2) the central goals of the internship course and how they relate to the students; (3) the general approach, underlying rationale, and specific strategies for the course; and (4) the effectiveness of the strategies and suggestions for improvement still to be done. Appendices list internship placements for 1993-94 and journal supplements for the writing section of the course. (EH)
