Book Title: Write It Down! A Guided Journal of Ideas, Strategies and Reflections for Beginning Teachers
Publisher: Wadsworth Publishing
Author: Dawn L. Kolakoski
This supplemental book is an excellent tool for students completing internships, observation/participation experiences, field work, student teaching and practicums in early childhood and elementary school settings. Through a host of techniques that encourage journaling, students are guided to record entries of curriculum ideas and teaching strategies they observe in the field. Sample observations help them get started, and journal forms in the final section teach students how to analyze their own teaching skills. The student becomes the author of what will be an invaluable personal resource and curriculum book of ideas they know to be successful.
