Describe your situation, the grade level, school (elementary, high, special, magnet, intermediate) the type of classroom, self-contained, inclusion, general education.
For my observation, I went to Augusta Evan. I was placed in a math class for grade 9-12. Augusta Evans is a special education. In the classroom I was in I had students of all different levels.

Describe the classroom atmosphere.
The first day I was at Augusta Evan, we were in the computer lab the whole time. The students were very quiet and respectful. Each student would play math games until I could call them over to the computer to be test for math or literacy. On the second day, I was in the actual classroom. The students were again very calm and respectful. The
Was there evidence of effective instructional strategies being used (Marzano’s, Bloom’s, MI, UDL)?
I feel that Ms. O’D used Bloom Taxonomy the most. She had the student create a number line by 10s, analyze the number value of money, apply their pervious knowledge to online math games, and remember the names of numbers. I liked that she used Youtube in her class. Many of the students have trouble counting and Ms. O’D uses a number exercise song to help the student remember. I would have never thought of that. The students also LOVE to use the smart board; it was a delight to see a child face light up when they got to go to the board.
I loved being with the students. I honestly did not want to leave. I never thought I would enjoy a math class, but these students stole my heart. I loved giving one-on-one with some of the students. I also loved helping them grade their papers. I did not like that Ms. O’D kept telling me how I will never have students like this in my class. I did not like that she would talk negatively about the students in front of them. It broke my heart.

If this were your classroom, what might you have done

Unfortunately, some companies have mismanaged their greatest asset—their brands.
