Standard 1 Composition. Mission, Vision, and Core Values

Instructions for the Internship Standards-Based Compositions

Complete a composition detailing your mastery of each relevant standard by reflecting on the activities you have completed throughout the internship experience. Combine evidence from internship activities, personal reflections, and relevant professional literature to create a compelling demonstration of your mastery of each standard. The purpose is to showcase your achievement and synthesize your understanding of each standard.

If you are in a state-specific course, reference the standards for your state.

If you are not in a state-specific course, reference the PSEL standards at all times.

Specific Requirements

  • The composition will be submitted as a Microsoft Word document, or PDF, with appropriate formatting, cover page, citations, references and an appendix or appendices, as outlined in the current edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association
  • Each composition should be no less than 10 pages in length, excluding any appendices.
  • Discuss at least three internship activities that support your mastery of the standard in each composition and make sure the activities listed align with the activities on your Time and Activity Log.
  • Include the following level 2 headings and supporting information in the composition:
  • Overview: Write an introduction which establishes the context or setting, including 1) a brief description of the internship location; 2) the standard that is the focus of the composition; and, 3) the activities you will discuss as evidence of mastery of that standard.
  • Reflecting on the Standard: Describe what the standard means to you and why mastering it is important for a school leader.
  • Summary of Activities: Briefly explain the planning, implementation, and results of the activities used in this composition as evidence of your mastery of the standard.

In each paragraph, for each activity, either embed an artifact or reference the appropriate appendix (see “appendix” section below).
