Clinical Field Experience Option A: Service and Support
Allocate 6 hours to complete this clinical field experience.
Volunteer for a total of 6 hours with one or more organizations in your community that help K-12 aged students and their families live healthy, more productive lives. If possible, include organizations that offer services for K-12 aged students with special needs.
In 250-500-words, discuss your frames of reference (e.g., culture, gender, language, abilities and ways of knowing) and whether they changed or stayed the same based on your service activities. What expectations did you have before your experience? How have your frames of reference affected your expectations throughout this experience? Based on this experience, reflect on any takeaways that would be well suited for teaching practices.
Examples of organizations and events that you may volunteer for during this clinical field experience could include:
- After-school activities (e.g., Boys/Girls Club, YMCA, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Parks and Recreation
- Emergency food programs (e.g., soup kitchens, community pantries)
- Family shelters
- Leadership/Mentoring programs
- Academic support programs (e.g., community-based tutoring)
- Habitat for Humanity
- Community fairs
APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
You are required to submit your reflection to Turnitin.
