1 Child Study Paper Ann Pacheco EDU 510 Professor Lee
2 Child Study Paper I am a student teaching at Andrew Jackson P.S. 145, which is located at Bushwick, Brooklyn. PS145 has approximately 500 students, which serves children in grades 3K-5th and children with disabilities. There are general education classrooms, integrated classrooms, and dual-language classrooms in every grade level. Students in dual-language classrooms receive instruction in both English and Spanish. The school has a Horizon ASD program for grades K and 1st where the student population has AutismAutism and a bridge 12:1:1 self-contained class for grades 4th and 5th. I work as an intern in a fifth-grade integrated classroom. The classroom has two teachers: a General Education teacher and the other a Special Education teacher. Owing to the need for social distancing as a result of COVID19, there are 12 students in the classroom. The class comprises seven boys and five girls, all of whom are between the ages of 10 and 11. The majority of the classroom students are on grade level, and 40% of the population has an Individualized Education Program Plan. There are many therapists in or out of the classroom for children receiving services through an educational plan. These sessions involve speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and counseling services. We also have a large number of ELL students who benefit from pull-out services via an ESL teacher. Hispanic children make up the major ethnic group in the integrated classroom. Some of these children speak Spanish as their first language, but they all interact and speak English fluently. Many of these children live in a shelter a few blocks away from school or in low- income households. We also have a large number of students who live with other family members to survive. Our school is located in a low-income neighborhood. Many of our parents are undocumented and do their best to provide a hot meal for their children every night.
3 The teachers in the classroom do an excellent job of creating a fun and safe learning environment for the students by incorporating fun and educational activities for the students while still adhering to the required curriculum. Teachers also maintain open communication lines with parents via email, phone, and class dojo to guarantee that any questions or concerns are addressed and addressed appropriately. An NYC Schools account through which parents can access their child's report card, transportation information, and other school-related information is available.
