9. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
The internship in itself was a great opportunity to learn more about one's interest in a career. I also found the internship plan to be a good way to keep on track.
The actual internship
it made me appreciate my internship experience more and go into deeper thinking.
the instructor is really friendly and help anytime I need.
Talking in class about our experiences at our internship sites
It was a nice to have the opportunity to reflect on my internship experience in this class,and to hear about other sites as well
I found my internship assignment the most valuable and helpful element of the course.
Internship weekly journals. Site evaluations.
I thought that doing the journals for this course was very helpful because it helps you remember things that was either taught in class or at your internship site.
Our actual internship, not the classroom internship class.
attending my internship and learning about other jobs that are out there
The writting critiques.
THe assignments helped me to become a better writer by using appropriate action verbs. I also liked learning how to set goals and objectives that will help me to achieve that goal.
I liked how it related to what we were doing in our actual internship sites.

16. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
I think some of the assignments we did were somewhat unnecessary and required an extra amount of tedious writing. For example, the critical case study did not seem relevant, as it focused too much on one particular situation an intern encountered along t
I think there should be less assignments for this particular class. Completing 180 hours with journals should be enough.
it better for student to use powerpoint in the class.
take out the daily journals. I think having a weekly journal of two pages would be better.
There seems to be a need to micromanage seniors in this program. It might be better if the students were encouraged to structure their own experiences to best suit their needs. If they aren't ready for independence by the time they are about to graduate,
Need more time at internship site before creating detailed objectves to be accomplished.
should just turn in papers and come in for meetings throughout the semester. felt that classes were unecessary.
I don't think there's a need to make any improvements for this course.
I would like less weekly journals, like every two weeks. Less daily journals.
goals and objectives assignment need to be less in depth, less class meetings because it gives more time for internship (sometimes class is not needed)
Each profesor who teaches the class should have the same grading requirements. They should be on the same page. Fong was a lot more diffcult than Whittington. The other class should have been graded in a similar ways as us.
Although the grading of the work helped me to become a better writing, I think many of us in the class were unaware of how our papers were going to be graded. Compared to the other Internship class, our grades may have been lower due to the different grad
