The quality of supervision a student receives at his/her fieldwork sites has a profound effect on the student`s learning experience. The purpose of this assignment is to familiarize the student with current models of fieldwork supervision so that he/she can select appropriate supervisors for internship experiences.
The paper should incorporate the following:
a) read 5 peer reviewed articles that discuss at least three current models of counseling supervision
b) compare and contrast these models
c) apply these models to your current practicum site, by discussing examples of the manner in which your current supervisor provides supervision to you
d.) describe the model of supervision that you think works best for you.
Lastly, please discuss what you believe are the possible benefits or advantages to school counseling students learning about models of supervision prior to internship placement. You may find the following references helpful.
