Because experiential learning is one of the most effective means to develop professionally, an internship is required of all candidates seeking a state license in education. Jesus modeled with His disciples the value of a mentoring relationship. Following His example, both a university instructor and an on-site supervisor will mentor the intern through this 16-week internship.

Accountability Protocol Project Assignment

The Accountability Protocol Project is a benchmark assessment for the School Building-Level Administration internship course. It emphasizes accountability and monitoring of progress. The project is completed in collaboration with an onsite mentor and is intended to be relevant to specific school needs in a real setting and also to be meaningful to interns as a means of experiencing and practicing leadership skills. This project will focus on a specific P-12 candidate achievement measurable objective and the protocol that will be developed to address the measurable objective set forth by the intern and the mentor. (CLO: A, B, C, D)

Portfolio Assignment

The candidate who are interested in a teaching or advanced state license must complete a Virginia Department of Education approved program. To be eligible for verification forms for other states, the licensure office must verify that the candidate have completed one of our approved licensure programs. Programs that lead to licensure will involve coursework, licensure tests, and student teaching or internship. Each candidate will build a professional portfolio during this course.

A passing grade on the portfolio is required in order to pass the course. The development of the portfolio is segmented into parts and the candidate should be working on the parts throughout the course.  Check-in quizzes are integrated throughout the course, so that the candidate is actively building this assignment throughout the entire term.

This portfolio is competency based. This portfolio must include artifacts that provide evidence of the candidate’s competency. For each section in which the candidate attaches artifacts (Parts C, E, and F), the candidate must introduce these artifacts with a brief paragraph explaining how the attached artifacts demonstrate candidate competency. Being a competency-based portfolio, the evident theme throughout should be the integration of the standards. (CLO: A, B, C. D)

Field Experience Summary and Self-Reflection Assignment

The candidate will upload his/her field experience documentation as directed in the course and complete a self-reflection activity in the provided template. The field experience form is a summary and should not be used as a running log for internship hours. (CLO: A, D)
