During my interview, I would like to learn more about J’s life at home and any activities he participates in outside of school. I would also like to find out more about J’s family. My mentor teacher (Mrs. T) had informed me that J and his sister live with their aunt. I hope to find out why this is, but I also understand if J’s aunt doesn’t feel comfortable telling me. I know that J and his sister call their Aunt “Mom” so I’m curious to find out if they know their Aunt is not their biological mom. I also interested to see how this has affected them. I’m not sure if their Uncle is in their lives, but I would hopefully like to find this out as well. My mentor teacher also had mentioned her concerns about his challenging behavior during class time. I would like to find out more about this from his guardians to see if they are experiencing the same type of issues at home. I would also like to focus on J’s behavior issues. He acts out occasionally during class and will copy others’ behaviors. I’m curious to find out why this is. I will ask Mrs. T if she would be okay with me conducting an interview J’s guardian.

...view, I would continue to keep in touch with her for the rest of the semester and update her on how J is doing in the classroom. I explained to her that we could just do this over email along with face-to-face communication in the morning when she drops J off at school.
For as long as I’ve been placed at this site, I’ve heard concerns from Mrs. T about J’s behavior, so going into this interview I had some assumptions and preconceptions. I’ve noticed some behavior issues with J, but never thought it was too severe. Although, this is my assumption, I could be missing something in my observations of J. I was also very excited going into this interview because I have small communication with J’s guardian in the morning, but only for a short period of time since she has to go to work. She is very friendly and easy to talk to so, I wasn’t worried for this interview at all.

- A parent of a child in an inner-city school questioned the sacrifice of educational instructional time in favor of online, benchmark testing that was to be offered 4 times each year (O’Brien, Winn, & Currier, 2014).

- Parents are known to have a big impact on their chills’ life. As children grow up they learn from their parents and model behaviors that they see after them.

- The task of observing a child in a natural setting seemed relatively simple. As an unmarried uncle with plenty of free time, I am frequently asked to observe and look after my twin ten year old niece and nephew. Most of the time I watch the children at my house or at my brother’s house, which for the most part is as natural a setting as can be found. The task of observing the children is reduced to just another enjoyable evening watching television, snacking on junk food and sitting around with the kids.... [tags: Observation of a Child]
