Community Field Experience

My Second Week


And now let’s get down to business! Week two is here and we are jumping into the deep end, pencils and textbooks in hand. We are preparing our first Group Teach assignments for next week and are tackling some interesting readings. We had some eye-opening discussion about Jean Piaget’s theory of Cognitive Development, and how his concepts are so embedded in education today. We had to think about questions of how we learn, how we measure learning, why we are grouped with students of the same age in schools, and the list goes on. Lots of introspection and reflection, broken up by the occasional flash mob.
