Apologia: Internship for High School Credit {Crew Review}

Those of you who know me well know my great love for all things Apologia Educational Ministries.  My relationship with them began at our first Homeschooling introductory gathering when the head of the association we were considering mentioned their wonderful science curriculum.  Apologia has come a long way since then and we've enjoyed many of their curriculum products along the way, including our recent addition: Internship for High School Credit.

Apologia's Internship for High School Credit is a great workbook to help parent's and teens alike create a plan for creating an Internship to gain High School Credit for their High School years.

What is an internship you ask?  It's when a student works alongside someone who already has experience in a field that they wish to learn more about.  Internships can be created for any job so that the student can see what is required for the career and they can see if it's a good fit for their life.

Internships have been around as long as their have been people.  In the 1500's most people learned their trade by completing apprenticeships, which is similar to what a student does in an internship.  An internship lasts for a short period of time, just long enough to really give the student a feel for the career that interests them before they commit to the program in college or jump into the career otherwise.

Internships gives students a chance to explore a career, to learn the day-to-day responsibilities of that career, and to gain experience related to their career goals.  Having early experience in a career through an internship helps students gain marketable skills as well as increase their future potential job offers for the career of their choice.

How You Use This Workbook:

The first section of this workbook explains what an internship is.  The next section helps the student decide what kind of internship will be good for them.  Applicable laws are also considered in the content of the book for planning what can legally be provided and covered during an internship.

The last part of this workbook includes worksheets for you to plan the internship as well as complete it.  There are weekly worksheets to complete to show what your student is learning from their internships.  This allow you to show how the internship is working for your student as well as provide written proof of the internships completion for credit later when needed.  This is a great way to keep all your information in one place for record keeping.

The booklet is around 100 pages in length and provides everything needed to create an internship.  This is not a program just for homeschoolers but can be used by Public school students as well.  It includes a note for Guidance Counselors in the back along with an example formal letter for obtaining an internship.

Overall this is a great resource for any family interested in creating an internship for your high school aged student.  Internship for High School Credit is available for $33 from Apologia.  The Crew also reviewed How To Homeschool with Stunning Confidence, Contagious Joy and Amazing Focus (DVD and Coursebook)
