This unique resource provides step-by-step guidance for interns, their supervisors, and their faculty on how to initiate an internship and evaluate interns' work. In this updated fourth edition, the content is organized around the latest National Policy Board for Educational Administration (NPBEA) Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (2015) and includes intern activities to develop skills in cross-content literacy, distributive leadership, equity in practice, professional learning communities, remediation strategies, school improvement planning, and special populations. This is a critical resource for leadership preparation programs nationwide and the thousands of school districts that support leadership candidates.
Special Features include:
"This comprehensive text covers major topics and themes and provides examples and resources that are easy to customize to any program. The book’s organization correlates with national standards to address the essentials of field experience in planning, assessment, and implementation. This text should be required in school leadership programs to facilitate the internship experience. "
Cynthia McDaniels, Professor, Coordinator of Graduate Programs, Department of Educational Leadership & Policy Studies, Southern Connecticut State University
"As with the 3rd Edition, this new edition is easily adapted for use with any existing EDL program. One strength of the 4th Edition is that, besides providing sound internship activities aligned to the new NPBEA standards, it extrapolates beyond those standards to include activities in critical performance areas, such as ethical and critical reasoning, and social justice."
Robert Scheidet, Coordinator of Educational Leadership Internships, Stony Brook University
