Carla Trump March 27, 2011 Eng 320 Child Study Report Preliminary Information: The school I observe in is a suburban school with a Michigan Department of Education rating of A (from 2007 – 2008). The standardized test scores for 2010 were higher in this school than the state average. For example, the 3 rd grade MEAP scores for this district were 94% in Reading, compared to the state average of 90% and 98% in Math, compared to the state average of 95%. The 4 th grade MEAP scores were 98% in Reading (state average was 84%), and 100% in Math (state average was 92%). The ethnicity makeup of this school is 92% White, 6% Hispanic, 1% Asian/Pacific Islander, and less than 1% American Indian/Alaskan Native. There is no percentage for African Americans in this school. 37% of the students in this school are eligible for free and reduced lunch, compared to a state average of 42%. Looking at these percentages, it is clear that this district is middle to higher class with a low percentage of multicultural families. I have observed a child who attends this school in a 2 nd grade classroom. This seven-year-old boy struggles with literacy but displays many great qualities such as hard working, compassionate, joyful, and a displayed perseverance. This child, who I shall refer to as Sean, uses a lot of great strategies when reading and writing. He enjoys these activities and rarely seems to get frustrated when he struggles through them. He is always listening and participating during lessons and rarely needs to be reminded to pay attention. He is also very caring towards his classmates and is a great friend to them all, especially the students who struggle socially. Strengths of this Child:
