Shadowing Reflection

Observing a student’s day was a great experience. It enabled me to
step outside of what I have been preparing for and into the life of
this student. It was an interesting and informing experience. The
day for the student had already begun when I arrived, but I jumped
right into his regular routine. My day with Fred began when I entered
his science class. He was sitting backwards in his seat talking while
the teacher was in the process of beginning her class. The teacher
started asking students to quiet down and start their daily routine.
Some students immediately followed her directions, while others
refused. Fred then loudly asked his fellow classmates if they could
be quiet. The students eventually settled down. The students spent
the day learning about their new research project and watching a
video. Fred seemed to be restless. He kept turning, changing his
position, and the location of his seat. During transitions Fred and
one of his classmates could be seen signing and mimicking various
singers and the dances associated with the music video. Fred was
redirected by the teacher and immediately did what was asked of him.
Five minutes before the end of the class he started to pack up as if
the instructor had officially ended the class. However, a few minutes
later they were given cue to do just that. During this time they were
suppose to remain in their seats until the bell rang. Fred was unable
to follow the directions and he proceeded to stand and walk around the
class, even after being asked to sit until the bell rings.

The bell rung and Fred was gone just that quick. I went out into the
hallway to determine his location, but that was a difficult task. He
had disappeared in the overcrowded hallway. After the halls started
to clear, I found him talking to his classmate in the hallway. Once I
had stood there for a few seconds he stated that he had to go because
he couldn’t be late. He took off down the hall and into his class.
When I arrived he was in his seat taking out his paper and pencil to
start the warm-up. He quickly completed the quick up and began
talking to nearby classmates. The teacher started to go over the
warm-up and Fred raised his hand several times along with a few other
classmates to obtain clarification. The lesson followed and the
students spent the class going over a large research project that they
would be required to complete. Fred decided to sleep during this
time. During the last ten minutes of class students watched a video
about the muscles. Fred’s friend lightly hit him to wake him up. He
spent the last few minutes watching and packing his backpack. The
bell rung, he yelled bye and jetted down the hall.

After lunch seems to be a very active time for students, as was
demonstrated by Fred. ...
