Nick Ruggieri and Rachel Oestreich ENES 3338 Dr. Kanno Due: May 2, 2013 Lesson for Field Experience at Edison High School CONTEXT Where: Edison High School Grade Level and Course: 10 th Grade AVID Course Total Students: 15 Gender Ratio: 5 Boys, 10 Girls Race and Ethnicity: 2 African American, 13 Latino ELL’s and proficiency level: Two of the students were 3-4 (developing/expanding ELL’s), while the rest of the class were either upper level ELL’s, just recently placed out of the program, or bilingual. All of the students in the class were proficient in their L1’s, and the majority of the class had acquired a strong understanding of their L2 language. The two predominant languages spoken in the classroom were Spanish and English; the students used the language interchangeable depending on who they were speaking too. Furthermore, there was only one student who spoke predominantly Spanish, and even she could talk in her L2 (English). Over 75% of the class was Latino based, you saw the cultural differences in class daily and had to assimilate to those differences. Lastly, it was hard to determine who was an ELL and what level they were at because everyone seemed to be at a reading level below what they should be at besides a select few. Due to this, during the lesson we spoke slower, repeated key vocabulary, and made the students speak out loud and annunciate the words correctly so they had a better understanding and comprehension of what they meant. Content Objectives: Students will be able to identify their learning personality Students will be able to evaluate their learning personality and choose majors/careers based of their evaluation Students will be able to describe the reasons why they fall under this learning personality Language Objectives: Students will be able to define terms that are common when dealing with looking for a major Students will be able to define the varying personality categories (Conventional, Enterprising, Realistic, Artistic, Social, Investigative) o Students will be able to debate whether they should fall under another personality category or not LENGTH OF LESSON The allotted time for this lesson is between 35 and 45 minutes. However, if the students do not clearly understand the content and language objectives the lesson would be extended to take up the entire class time, or schedule an additional class to enforce the same points.

    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.
