The dimensions of this internship report reflect experiences that were made available to the candidate in both the Newfoundland and English educational systems. The candidate had the opportunity to work in the Newfoundland educational system as an assistant to a Physical Education Co-ordinator with a School Board (three weeks); to work in an administrative capacity at a Centre dealing with ‘special needs’ children (two weeks); and to work as an evaluator in student teaching for Physical Education 311B course (one week). – In the England the candidate worked under the auspices of an Area Education Authority. The areas of practical experience in which the candidate worked were administrative/teaching in physical education (two weeks); a general teaching practice at the infant, junior and secondary schools (two weeks); and in a supervisory capacity dealing with handicapped students. – The insights gained in these educational environments helped the candidate apply administrative concepts to the tasks that were given within the internship. Part I of this report deals with those tasks. The candidate, acting in the position of Physical Education Co-ordinator of the fictitious Utopian School Board, had to deal with some of the administrative responsibilities that are common to this role. Each task was unique in itself, with no causal connection to the others. Task Ia required the candidate to provide details of a method that could be used in the evaluation of physical education teachers.
