EXPERIENCE LOG

Name: Melissa McDonald Supervising Librarian: Rui-Hung Tsai School : Somerset Elementary School, MCPS (Regional Summer School)

Grade Level: K-5

The experience log is a detailed account of the levels and types of activities completed in the field. The candidates will objectively document their experiences. The log will have the following parts: time spent on experience, detailed description of experience, role played during experience, reflection on experience (what was learned during the experience), how experience impacts student learning, relationships among factors that impact student learning with references to current research literature, relationships built via the experience (when appropriate). This extensive log provides an opportunity for candidates to demonstrate best practices and make connections between current research issues and school-level practice. An entry into the experience log will be completed at the end of every day. The cooperating SLMS will have access to the final log and use it in addition to the final checklist to evaluate the internship.

When I led the lesson, I include all that Rui did/said above, plus I talked about the dedication and what a „blanket tentâ€&#x; is and we looked at pictures of author and illustrator in the back of book. The author is pictured reading under a blanket tent, and the illustrator is photographed with his bird. We talked about our pets, too. Rui just had a few small notes to make about my lessons, such as show what it means to put the shelf marker in, and let them know ahead of time they have 5 minutes to choose a book.

Rui made several suggestions to my lesson plans, which I incorporated. For the reading, she felt I was too ambitious to try to complete in one lesson and that I should plan for at least two meetings. Also needed to add the MCPS SLM learner outcome to my list of standards to meet. For the computer, she said I shouldn‟t build a lesson on AGOPPE alone, that it should be integrated with the entire research project. Basically, I needed to

Heard from Megan Kim, she loved my lesson, but when I suggested we make it two instead of one (one this week, one next), she was afraid it would confuse her students, because she is actually working on the fantasy genre with them. Not sure why she did not mention this when we were planning last week, so I asked Rui what we should do. She said she had a Fantasy lesson flipchart on her flashdrive, so while I reviewed that, she checked the collection for fantasy titles, and with the help of her student assistant, pulled them out for the lesson. Rui led today‟s class, I will lead tomorrow‟s. Tuesday is the book title of the read aloud.
