During this course, read news magazines and journals, specifically looking for items relating to employee assistance issues. The goal is to find 15 articles that relate to your future niche or specialty. These articles may relate to the topic for your research paper. Provide a copy of the article for me and write a 1-page summary for each one of the articles and post the review on the bulletin board for the class.
Students will present their papers and portfolios to the class on May 6th at 5:30 p.m. Each paper presentation will be presented in a power point format and the paper presentation will be on campus. Dr. Kitchen will provide the class the rubric that will be used to grade the presentations.
Students will be required to complete a pre-internship. The pre-internship will allow students to bring up to 50 hours from the spring semester into the course EDUC 5583 – Internship. A copy of the syllabus for the EDUC 5583 will be provided to students so that they will know what is required for this course as well as the pre-internship section of this course. 0- 25 hours will count for developing of the presentations and 0-25 hours will count for presenting the information. Keep in mind that your presentations can be for your place of employment, church, service groups ( i.e. boys and girls clubs), and or other groups. Students must come by Dr. Kitchen’s office to review examples of EDUC 5583 internship portfolios.
