Field work # 10
Observe your FW classroom (or give examples from the previous visits) and determine what elements/principles of constructivist practice you would see.
Jot down your observations and reflect on the findings in your blogs.
A specific example of constructivist practice observed in the classroom during my fieldwork would be when I observed the students doing research on a project. Each student was assigned a country to report on. They could gain information by any means that they had available to them. Some decided to use the computer to find out information about a their assigned country. While others used magazines and books. Some focused on foods and clothing in their country. Some decided to do a collage to report on their country while others choose to do a paper sharing what they learned. Allowing the students different ways to express their findings is an example of a constructivist practice.
