My Observation Hours At The Grove Intermediate School Building

- Physical Development For my observation hours, I observed children in the special services department at the Coulter Grove Intermediate School building in Maryville, Tennessee.

This is due to the lower concentration of special needs students in the school system. My observation hours occurred between the hours of 12:00 PM and 2 PM....   [tags: Motor control, Motor skills, Fine motor skill]

Reaction to Suso’s Wisdom’s Watch upon the Hours

- I have had a tremendous amount of frustration interpreting Henry Suso’s Wisdom’s Watch upon the Hours. The cause of this difficulty is somewhat perplexing.

After roughly one hundred and sixty pages of dialogue between Wisdom and the Disciple, Suso fails to provide an answer to the question of what exactly the reader is expected to do with regards to the meditations that precede the rather abrupt end of the book....   [tags: Literature Analysis]
