For this week’s “Lens into the Classroom” session, which will be on Thurs. Feb. 6 at 4pm Pacific (archive will be posted here), we’ll be doing a consultancy protocol with teacher Randy Scherer.
Randy’s dilemma is: “How does the school best help students derive and articulate meaning through the process of an internship experience?”
Here is a description of the consultancy protocol we’ll be using.
Randy’s classes are currently working on about a month of Humanities work centered on processing and publishing the stories of internships.His current internship-centered curricula arose out of his work in the HTH GSE, which explored the relationship between school and internship.
Here are some resources from Randy:
- Internships web site (with assignments, schedule, etc.)
- The mentor interview
- The Internship Photo Essay Project Sheet
- Ampersand: The Student Journal of School and Work
And here is some additional background on how High Tech High views internships:
- High Tech High Academic Internships (goals and structure)
- Internships at High Tech High (purpose, support, and connection)
- “Hands On, Heads Up: Uncovering the Humanities in Work-Based Learning Programs”
Here are the slides we’ll be using for this session:
