EDSE 4440 is a course that provides opportunities for potential educators to implement hands on activities with students at Cunningham Elementary School. Having the opportunity to work with students one on one in a classroom environment setting has been a great learning experience for potential educators. I had the opportunity to work with a 10 year old boy named Sebastian. Sebastian is in 5th grade and has been part of the After School Program for 3 years.

In the comprehension questions, he missed 1 question which placed him at an independent reading level. As for retelling the passage, he was also placed at an independent level.
