Overview of three settings Environment is an important role which affects a child’s education and development. In P.S. 59, which is one of the public schools located in Brooklyn. Most of the children are African American and the atmosphere in the classroom is closer to American culture. In the classroom, there are 3 teachers with 1 teacher assistant, 23 students and 4 of them with IEP(Individual Educational Program) service.The teaching method in this classroom is differentiation, which means the teacher gives out the homework, and small group activities depending on the child’s level. In the classroom layout, children are sitting individually in their seat, with the supply box in front of them. There are many childrens’ artworks or assignments on the classroom wall, which offers a chance for students to read each others work and learn from each other. The second placement school that I observed is P.S.184 which located in Manhattan. In a Kindergarten classroom, there are 2 teachers, 21 students and 1 of them with IEP service. The teaching method in the classroom is differentiation. In the classroom, there is no childrens’ work displayed on the wall, but there is a folder for children to put their work which is located on a shelf. For the classroom design, although there is no children’s work displayed on the wall, there is an English word bank with Chinese translation. This can help children to learn both English and Chinese while they grow up and affect childrens’ cognition and language development. The third placement is a preschool, Chinatown Head Start. For this school, I was observed in a classroom with 20 children, 2 of them with IEP service. In this classroom, there are one teacher and one teacher assistant. In the classroom, there are some childrens’ artwork displayed on the wall, such as collages, paintings, and drawings. In the classroom, there are two groups of children, one group is 3 years old, and the other is 4 years old. The teaching method in this classroom is differentiation. This it showed when two groups of children are working and playing together, the 3 year-old group will learn what the 4 year- old group does in the classroom, and they can help each other to improve their work together. Compare and Contrast with three settings Overall, these three classrooms that I observed in different locations, have taught me a lot of knowledge. The similarities between these classrooms are that they all use differentiation method in their classroom, but the way they are using it can benefit their children in different ways. For example, in P.S. 59, during the writing workshop, the teacher asked three questions for children to choose and develop their essay.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
