In this paper, I discuss my experience with observing a group counseling session with the purpose of evaluating it in terms of how it is set up, how it is run, interventions used, culturally sensitivity, and the contribution toward my professional development as a social worker. The group setting plays a critical role in social work outside of the individual session and can be largely beneficial for clients in the forms of therapy, counseling, self-help, and support. By attempting to better understand group interventions, I will learn how to apply this strategy in aiding clients for whom this method is appropriate by increasing their social supports.
The first educator that I observed was Mrs. Crystal Sullivan at Fox Meadow Elementary on September 14, 2017. Mrs. Sullivan is a music teacher at this school and on this particular day, Mrs. Sullivan had special needs students in her classroom in the early morning. I chose to observe Mrs. Sullivan while teaching special needs because I had a great interest in special needs students. The students came into the classroom and first went to sit on the risers in the back of the room. Accompanying them were 4 other adults who assisted the special education teacher. Mrs. Sullivan began her class with the “Hello” song which the students were receptive to. She played a small guitar while singing the song and they also began to pat the beat on their legs. The disabilities of the students ranged from severe to non-severe. There was one student who did not seem to enjoy the music because he continued to cover his ears. The teachers accommodated him by encouraging him to listen and participate. Mrs. Sullivan used many engaging techniques such as physical activity while teaching her music class with the special needs students. For example, Mrs. Sullivan played the “All Fall Down” song on the smart board and each student performed a move at various times in the song. The students would either act like they were cranking up or they would crank down and fall to the carpet. She also utilized the parachute which students held and walked around as music played. Mrs. Sullivan also used dynamics
Research Question: The researchers goal was to know if the effects of small-group reading interventions implemented positive behavior in support model, on elementary students that show any emotional and behavior disorders or that do not show any emotional and behavior disorders. The following are the research questions they addressed: (a) the differences in reading instruction in a general classroom for students at risk and to compare schools that combine behavior/reading risk. (b) differential effects with small-group instruction. (c) how do any of the observable differences translate to the outcome of students’ growth in reading.
After observing my mother in at the emergency room where she works, I finally understand the difficulty of being a doctor.

1. My participant observation research project is on sex offenders. A few topics I would be interested in is different type of offenders, such as pedophilic and non-pedophilic. I know sex offending is horrible all together but I really hate when I hear about children and teens being hurt. My questions would be what causes their urge to offend children? How do they know the victim? How to help the offender?

After reading the material on participant-observation (p.57), attend a regularly scheduled group meeting in your daily work while consciously taking up the role of participant-observer. Write a post that reflects on your experience in this group and being a participant-observer. Be sure to incorporate the PO cycle into your reflection.
Roller skating rinks and bowling alleys are two places that people visit for recreational purposes. Although I have gone bowling a couple of times, I have never gone roller skating at a rink. Some people do go by themselves, while others take along a friend or family member(s). I visited both of these facilities in order to conduct field research and do a micro-level analysis so as to gather primary data from the natural environment about society and patterns of social behavior. While in public, there are certain rules of behavior that are generally followed, which are considered acceptable by the members of society (McLeod, 2008). Individuals who do not follow these norms may be shunned or suffer some type of ramification (McLeod, 2008).
In the past two weeks I have been helping and guiding my boyfriend Richard of three years with his resume and cover letter. I have a lot of practice and experience with them where as he started working at a young age and hasn't moved around often in jobs. We looked at his skills and traits and started linking them to what an employer wants. Employers want a certain education and skill but they also want a certain personality. Someone who can work well with others, is helpful and has good communication skills, someone who is dependable and hard working. I have spent the last two weeks comparing our professional traits so I will base this around his professional life. Richard currently works for a company where everyday he is apart of a team, they are given
Healing facilities can be an awesome wellspring of copious social collaborations: specialist to medical caretaker, patient to specialist, relative to quiet, colleague to collaborator. By using the sociological viewpoint, the medicinal services social setting is a perfect area to affect small scale level subjective research systems. Miniaturized scale human science is sociological examination that hassles the investigation of little gatherings, frequently through trial implies. Subjective research is a study gathered from what can be watched frame a naturalistic social setting. Through experiencing a move as a servant in the social setting of RMH doctor's facility in Rockford, IL, I gathered all information through perception of two little gatherings and their social connections, accordingly making this miniaturized scale level subjective research.
Field Experience My first day of observations had finally arrived. Filled with excitement, I opened the doors to Pleasant Ridge Elementary School, and walked into the front office to sign in as a guest for the day. I made my way to the second grade wing to do my first observation for my field experience report. The second grade instructor greeted me as I entered her classroom, with a big bright smile I found made her classroom warm and inviting.
My practicum took place on September 7,2016 from nine thirty to ten thirty. The practicum took place at Impact Early College High School in Baytown. The class I observed was Ms. Nguyen’s class of juniors and seniors that contained twenty students, seven boys and thirteen girls. The class appeared to be alert and ready to learn. Since this was their second period class they already had enough time to shake off their fatigue. The subject was Pre-Calculous and the topic was operations of functions. Students entered the classroom in a calm manner and socialized until it was time to start class. The teacher instructed the students to take their seats and take five minutes to write their assignments into their academic calendar. The teacher went
Data Report The following data was gathered while fulfilling duties as a principal intern at Theresa Bunker Elementary School. The data was observed during five to seven minutes of classroom observation as part of a walk-through in the spring of the current school year. My cooperating supervisor for my internship was able to go on these walk-throughs with me in order to have a productive reflection meeting afterwards. This elementary school has two of each grade level from Kindergarten to sixth grade. Since it was more feasible in this small school setting, I actually was able to do a walkthrough in eight classes. Here I will report my observations from five of those walk-throughs. As I went in to each room I was looking for four
