Field Observation 3

In the classroom that I observed was an 11th grade English class. In the class they were in small groups and they were discussing J. D. Salinger’s “The Catcher in the Rye” and in the small groups they were talking about what some of the different objects in the book could represent and what the objects symbolize in the book and to the characters. And in the students’ small group discussions, the students could agree or disagree with what their peers were saying. One thing that I noticed while watching the observation was that the students were passing around a ball-typed object and whenever a student had that ball-typed object they were the speaker for the time that they had that object. One of the things that I liked about this small groups’ discussion was that throughout the discussion students were able to bring in small details from their life into the discussion and connect that to the book.
