Miguel and I are well acquainted. Last year I covered his 8th grade science class when they were behaving badly. I said some things that were not well thought out. He has not let me forget my slip.
ELD. They had specific book work to complete. Then they could get on computers to complete other tasks.
Miguel played around a lot. But, eventually he got to the point where he could get a computer. Did he get on task? Of course not.
You know how you can type something in to Google and have it speak it for you? (I'm not sure how this works. All I know is that it does exist.) Miguel knows. Because, while the rest of the class was busily working, his computer started spouting off something... rude...
The words weren't inappropriate per se, but the sentiment... And it was directed at the boy seated next to him.
Miguel lost his computer privileges. This period I had an instructional assistant. (I've worked with him many times.) He went looking for a think sheet for Miguel. At which point I realized I had a few that I "borrowed" for just such an occasion.
