Middle School Case Study

I met “Gloria” when I first went into my assigned observation classroom – 9th period Native American Connections. She is a 13-year-old seventh grader with brown hair and brown eyes. She is Native American. She is left-handed. She has one sister (16-years-old). She is not very tall, but is showing the first signs of puberty. I noticed occasionally that she wears light eye shadow (like white or pale pink) and lip-gloss. – school bag singapore

When I asked “Gloria” a few introductory questions, I discovered that her favorite subject is math, her favorite color is red and her favorite music is rap. “Gloria” is not involved in any clubs and doesn’t really watch television.

When I asked “Gloria” for her class schedule, she did not have a copy of it; but was able to tell me what classes she takes and when. She starts her day out with PRO-Time (People Relating to Others). Then for second period it’s on to reading. Third period is math, fourth period is Native American Connections, and then she goes to lunch at fifth period. After lunch is Language Arts for sixth period, science for seventh period, keyboarding for eighth period, Native American Connections – guided study for ninth period and lastly, Social Studies for tenth period.

On Tuesday, March 22, 2005 I followed “Gloria” around all day. When I first found out that I was supposed to follow a 13-year-old seventh grader around her school all day, I was nervous. I was worried that she would feel self-conscious and embarrassed that I was there; however, this was not the case.
