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. Mrs. Braun was also very patient as she was being asked
questions while she was trying to explain the assignment. From what I
saw, some students were getting bored, though, while the assignment
was being explained and started whispering to each other. However, the
whispering did stop when the students had to get started on the
assignment.

I have also observed that there seems to be a strong set of rules in
place in Mrs. Braun’s classroom. This is evident through some of Mrs.
Braun’s subtle, and not-so-subtle, reminders. For example, she gently
made an example of a student by pointing out that his decorated pen
(with a silly topper on it) was not allowed in class if it was going
to be played and not used. She made a general statement that all pens
similar to it are not welcomed is they are going to be played with.
Overall, the students follow the rules very well, and there have not
been any severe disruptions. There has only been whispering
occasionally, but it stopped when Mrs. Braun asked. Disciplinary
strategies seem to be in place as well, although I have not seen any
discipline used while I have been observing the class. There is even a
routine in place in the classroom for each period. During period one,
first of all, old assignments are collected by Mrs. Braun, and then
vocabulary is covered. Then a vocabulary assignment is given with any
other new assignments on what is being cover in class. Next the
teacher reads or goes over any assigned readings from the book that is
being covered in class. This is the same basic routine for period two.
The third period is computer time and...
