Internship Resources

The following links provide access to the most updated versions of lesson planning and lesson reflection forms used by candidates (students) in the UCA Middle Level program.  In their core education courses, middle level students learn about the lesson and reflection forms, as well as the Arkansas Teacher Excellence and Support System (TESS).  During candidates’ last academic year before graduation, they use these forms for lesson planning and reflection during their internships and receive evaluative feedback to improve their instructional skills.  The lesson and evaluation forms used by the middle level program adhere to the same standards of instructional quality and leadership as those expected of all Arkansas teachers.
