Last week I asked my contact at the Anchorage School district to send out an email to all the ELL teacher to see if anyone was available to assist me with my field practicum. As of this email no one has responded. Since this month has lot of holidays were school is not in session I became a bit concerned. So I reached out to an English teacher at a private high school who is willing to let me observe her classes. Though the school does not have an English Language Learners program they do have students from Nigeria, Korea, Philippines, and native Alaskan villages. May I please have permission to observe in Mrs. Edmonds class to fulfill the 15 hours for the field practicum?

On 4/25/17 I met Mr. Westenberg for his pr-operative teaching at the office of Dr. Cherwin. He was given a refill on his pain medication. He will be having blood work done on 4/26/17. Mr. Westenberg has been instructed on the use of the sling and what home exercises he needs to do after surgery. He asked about returning to work in 5 to 10 days. He was told that Dr. Cherwin will give him a work slip stating no use of the left arm. The post operative appointment will be 10 days after surgery. He will be given the date and time the day of his surgery.
In this article review, I will be reviewing the article written by Anna Jo Perry called The Practicum, A point of change. I will be discussing what the article is about, the importance of communication between the associate teacher and the student and other staff members. I will also be discussing why I believe the article would be of interest to an early childhood teacher or a parent of a young child.

The 10-minute observation occurred at the end of late lunch on Friday, August 14th. A group of freshmen boys was sitting in the amphitheater. All 5 boys were wearing similar outfits. This shows that one is often influenced by his or her friends/ surroundings. They seemed to be going for a cool-kid vibe. As freshmen, they most likely want to do anything they can to fit in. They were all wearing graphic tee shirts; khaki, fitted pants/ shorts; white Nike Elite socks; and white tennis shoes (either Vans or Nike). In addition, every boy had a black JanSport backpack, which is very popular among high school- aged kids.
Observing a third-grade classroom environment was interesting to find out what they do on a daily basis. Some of the examples of physical development would be kids would be building also dancing around and also running outside playing with the kids. Another aspect of observation of kids at the daycare was cognitive development and how they use interaction, directions, and behavior.
For my observation on the indoor activity space, I was able to observe a classroom physically and view all areas in the indoor environment. I first observed if the surfaces where properly cleaned and I found that the floors all had clean surfaces not one dirty desk in sight. Next, I observed that all furniture was sturdy and safe all furniture was rounded and at the child level and size. In addition, I noticed that the classroom area was spacious and all areas had enough space separating the from each other to give children the room to explore without incident. The classroom consisted of many options for children to choose from like pretend play art, science, music, blocks, pretend play, manipulation, and a cozy area, and between those areas they all have the proper space for children to not be distracted from other areas.
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
Classroom observation is a main approach of teaching research. Scholars or researchers use video to record the real whole class and observe the teachers and students’ actions, words and the efficiency in the class. Though the observation, they analyze what approach is more suitable. This paper will select video 5 and video 3 as the material to do the classroom observation. Different aspects such as teachers’ responds, questions, instructions notes and students’ behavior will be addressed to analyze the efficacy of this class.
