Louis,

Your field note is interesting. It would be helpful to
elaborate a bit about the difficulties that Jose had: for
example, what specific kind of difficulties did he have
calculating with money (e.g., difficulties with addition,
substraction, or multiplication)? It would be useful to also
expand how Jose successfuly carried out math operations as he
shifted to using pencil and paper. How did his calculations
without paper and pencil differ from his calculations with paper
and pencil? Do you have any idea as to why Jose couldn't solve
some of the math operations in the absence of pencil and paper?
Finally, in relation to the questions above, I would be
interested in hearing more details about how you helped Jose
learn (e.g., how did you help by "rephrasing the math
problem differently"?).

By the way, given that you hadn't play the game for a long
time, did Jose help you to learn/relearn some of the rules of the
game?

In your reflections, you said that your approach to learning
was "top-down because we choose the game monopoly, picked a
room, and began playing." I would like to know more about
the types of decision making that you both engaged in that led
you to think that you both approached the monopoly activity in a
top-down manner (e.g, did you both focus on global purpose of the
game, the relations of the players' roles in playing the game?).

In the inquiries section, you wrote "I was glad to have
been of some help helping Jose come to the correct answer
rephrasing the math problem differently or at times just sitting
patiently till Jose got the corect answer." It seems to me
that this information belongs to the reflection section. Based on
your observations, what inquiries might you raise regarding you
and Jose's teaching/learning experiences?

Pablo
