For my ILP I work for timoteo flag football. In my ILP I do a lot of online work. I organized there different papers that they get in from the people in the football league. Now that the football season is starting there is a lot more work for me to do. I decided to start a snapchat for them too. During the games I take videos of them playing and post it. And the people get excited to see the videos. Now that the season started I am doing my ILP not just on Wednesdays I am doing it on Saturdays and when I am free.
My ilp is going very well so far. I have helped a lot of kids learn to row. I am enjoying it a lot.
For my ILP, I am enrolled a law class taught by Drexel University students, here at SlA. What we do is we learn about law, as well as take part in sitiuations modeled after real-life law scenarios. We learn how law works firsthand and through lessons, through activities such as mock trials. We have discussions which we are meant to take away knowledge about law from these. This is my ILP.
Since last year, I have been interning at the Free Library of Philadelphia. Although I like what I am doing, I don’t think I will go intern there again for junior year. I feel like i’m getting nothing done and although this is helping my resume, I don’t think it’s a perfect fit for me. For junior year, I shall be getting a head start on my career by interning at St. Christopher’s Children Hospital or C.H.O.P.
Since the beginning of the school year my ILP is at Greenfield Middle School where I assist the teacher in class and I help the students out with the class activities. So far, I don't have any concerns or problems with my ILP. I am really enjoying it especially dealing with little kids. This doesn't give me any stress which I'm glad and I'm always looking forward to this every Wednesday.
At my ilp, it's been pretty consistant. I am still the councilor at Mckinley Elementry's assistant. I often talk one-on-one or two-to-one with students about various issues, incourperating the core values of sla research(finding all the facts of isssues), inquiry (ask questions to get the kid to open up), presentation(asking them what they did), reflecting (on how they could of handled it, and what they can approve on.) and collaboration(with student or student and councilor to create a game plan for when and if these situations arise again and how to apologize.). Also, I have been managing the Tiger times school news paper. So far its pretty good.
I have now been working at my ILP for almost the whole year, and it has been going really well. Over the past few months, I have been pulling kids out of the classroom, helping them one on one, grading papers, helping with dismissal, practicing my Spanish in the classroom and led a lesson/discussion in class. Going to ICS, my middle and elementary school every week has really helped me realize what I want to do for a career, which is working with kids and to advocate for them and their education. Along with that, I am really enjoying speaking in Spanish a lot more, and it has helped me remember a lot of it, and become as fluent as I was a few years ago. I am looking forward to continue what I have been doing, and to continue working in and out of the classroom, while improving my Spanish.
I have an ILP at ACE architecture. So far it is going pretty great. At my intership we are working on a park in south philly with architects that work for the city. Also, we are making template designs of the park with the other students.
For my ILP i mentor a 3rd grade girl at Powell elementary school. I enjoy being a mentor because you can see the change in the person you mentor. Over the 6 month period I have been mentoring this young lady I have seen a very large change in her behavior and how she interacts with me and her peers.
Over this past couple months, I have been writing a lot of music, and have learned the ins and outs of writing, recording, and other aspects of professional music. I feel as though my musical professionality has been improved by a lot through this work. I've learned a lot.
