This is my second time to observe a classroom for our Field Study 2. I do not know if I am fortunate or unfortunate enough to be assigned in South City Elementary School but at least the principal there was hospitable to welcome us in.
I sat for two hours in a grade 5 classroom with almost 38 pupils and an English teacher who did not even care what kind of pronunciation her pupils will deliver. It was a little humorous to listen to their wrong dictions and pronunciations but the other side of me said that it should not be the proper way of dealing with little children. They should be taught of the right pronunciation and the correct construction of words at a young age for it will benefit them in the near future; well maybe unless the teacher herself does not know how to correct those mistakes.
Anyway, these are just three of the bluffs that I took down.
*Teacher: If it is a boy, you use the pronoun "he". If it is a girl, what do you use?
Pupil: He...ay hish ma'am.
*theym -- a combination of the words they and them (oh diba unique?)
*Teacher: Di mo maulaw naa tay bisita? Gapakita ra gyud mu sa inyung pagka unsa?
Pupils: Walay batasan.
Teacher: Very good.
Nan! Asa ka mamulot ana?
