Practicum: Journal and Time Log

You will submit a journal entry (along with your time log) for Weeks 1-3. Journal entries need to connect your previous professional experience with your practice, competencies/concepts in the program, and the literature. Your journal entry should be week-based and sequential so that all journal entries are contained in one file.

– Describe the observed activity.
– Using an evidence-based approach, analyze the problem, issue, or situation. Address questions posed in the weekly practicum pages if appropriate.
– Reveal how the real-world might mirror or diverge from program-related evidence, concepts, and/or theories.
– Time Log submission (1 point)
