- Kindergarten Reflection Entering my kindergarten teaching experience in the last quarter of school year I had to quickly become familiar with kindergarten content standards and the school’s curriculum. To do this I observed my mentor teachers instructional time with the children and gained as much information as I could about the children’s educational standing by developing a professional relationship with the my mentor teacher and the children. I learned that the majority of my kindergarten children had not previously attended preschool and that this was their first year of school....   [tags: Education, child observation, teacher observation]

Observations on Magical Realism

- Observations on Magical Realism   What is magical realism. Many people have conflicting ideas about when and who first used the term. It is likely that most people are completely confused when confronted with this subject, but after they read a few papers on magical realism, it becomes a little clearer. The papers that Amaryll Chanady, Luis Leal, Angle Flores, Franz Roh, and Scott Simpkins wrote have been helpful in studying the history and theory of magical realism. Each paper has many good points in it, but the authors argue so much over who is right or wrong that it is hard to decide who to agree with....   [tags: Literature Essays Literary Criticism]

Observe a Sixth Grade English Class at Bain Middle School

- Observe a Sixth Grade English Class at Bain Middle School I observe at Roosevelt Middle School, which is in River Forest, in Mrs. Braun’s sixth grade English class on Tuesdays in the morning. As I have observed, I have noticed that the classroom is student-centered. During computer time, Mrs. Braun focused more on helping the students get into the computer program to start the assignment than on having enough time to get the assignment done. Several times, Mrs. Braun gave helpful comments on how to do things on the computer or in the program, such as how to install automatic spell check....   [tags: Teaching Education Class Observation]

My Visit to a Greek Orthodox Church

- I have decided to visit a Greek Orthodox Church, Saint Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox church. I went alone because I figured that this would not draw too much attention during the service. I tried to find a nearby church that will give the service partially in English. When I found one near me it was my luck that I went at the time when it was all spoken in Greek. The English service was at six in the evening, and the all-Greek service started at ten in the morning. So to my discouragement I was at a lost at any attempts that I had preplanned to adapt to this new environment....   [tags: Observation Essays Descriptive Essay]

Café Pergolesi

- Café Pergolesi has a distinct alternative atmosphere to it. The customers I observed did not seem to be part of the popular culture, nor did they appear to want to. The café itself is an independent business located on Cedar Street in downtown Santa Cruz, one street over parallel to Pacific Avenue, the town’s central tourist shopping haven. It is conveniently located near the hubbub transpiring downtown, however I could see no tourists in sight. This is probably because Café Pergolesi is run inside an old house....   [tags: Site Observation, Tourism]

Screaming children seemed to move rapidly from the left corner of my eye to the other. Children ran after a black and white squared ball like birds flying in a flock. Jerseys in two different shades seemed to dominate the green patch of grass that was spread widely. This was the park located a couple of blocks away from my house. There was a middle aged man standing in the middle of the grass with a white and black striped shirt, he seemed to blow the whistle every time the ball flew out of the assigned line....   [tags: observation essay, place essay]

Understanding Phenomenology of Smoking

- There has been a great increase in the number of deaths due to smoking. Headlines such as ‘’Second hand smoke kills 600,000 worldwide annually’’ (Falco, 2010) highlights that there’s a major problem. My question is, why are people still smoking. It should be a wake-up call for those who smoke but even with the hard facts presented, people still decide to smoke. As a psychology student, I was interested in exploring the phenomenology of smoking & wanted to address this matter further. To do this, I designed an interview schedule from which I have gained an individual’s emotion as well as perception towards smoking....   [tags: smoking, smokers, observation]

People today have a difficult time believing the writings of Freud. In the “Oedipus Complex” Freud explains how our minds work on a subconscious level (482). However, humans are like Oedipus with regards to the power of dreams, the parental bonding, and the “tragedy of destiny” (479).
