Mercedes, nice set of observations. I thought your interactions with Olivia and while she wrote the letter to the Wizard were great. Also, your observation of her learning how to type and the difficulites she had were very rich. I wonder what things you learned by working with her? In your field notes, your descriptions were primarily focused around Oliva, but, I encourage you to also think about how your interactions with kids in the future may or may not foster learning for you as well. Also, I really likne your questions of how to we try and get kids to take the initative. What are your thoughts on this topic? I'm also wondering how the class and the overall expereince at BU is going for you (i.e., in terms of your role there at BU, the lack of strucutre that some of you mentioned on Friday, particularly too many kids vs. not enough computers to get them all working, and also the lack of direction from Maurice)? Please bring up any issues you may have in class. Overall, nice work, Ed.
