Nick Ruggieri 3/7/13 ENES 3338 Journal 2 Upon my first two observations I was rather nervous to observe at a school like Edison High School. From what I had read online and my prior knowledge of the area I was skeptical at best to whether I would enjoy my experience there and feel safe at the same time. To my surprise, when I arrived at the school I was taken aback by the schools look. I expected it to be dreary looking, but it was a big school that, minus the barred windows, looked like a typical High School to me. When walking around the school I go the feel that it was more like a labyrinth than a structured set of hall ways, and I sometimes became confused to where I was going. When walking into the classroom the first day, I observed a classroom that was majority Hispanic based and the majority was of a language minority, and of that, about half were ELL’s. The class as a whole really seemed to be off task and really gave the teacher a difficult time in the classroom and you could tell by the teacher’s demeanor.
