Hey guys, from what I understand about what you are writing your paper on, you may be interested in my fieldnote #8-Kids don't want to read direction. I had an interesting experiece with Jose. He didn't want to read the directions to Treasure Cove, so he blindly played around with it for a few minutes and then decided he didn't want to play because it was boring. I was wondering if maybe it had to do with the fact that english is his second language. Maybe reading the directions would have been confusing and frustrating for him since they are in english. His spoken english is good butmaybe hea has trouble reading it. Anyways, check it out if you want and good luck!!
