The primary purpose of this class day was to discuss the field experience for the course. Sara, the TA for the course, asked students to introduce themselves once more, this time focusing on who they are personally and what they are motivated by professionally. She spoke briefly about how this activity can give insight into your students and help to begin to build relationships in the classroom.
We then discussed the field experience. Students received a handout outlining the dates and requirements and Sara addressed questions and provided some advice about creativity, observing teachers, and approaching the field experience with a positive attitude and an open mind.
