I first have to stay while being sick at home this reading took me forever to read. I had to keep re-reading it to understand what was going on. It did take me a little while to read. I am using Jessica Tenerella's blog this week to make some extended comments on. I did end up liking this reading. I could see all the connections it had with Delpit along with Rodriguez. I totally agree with jess when she was saying how Delpit would try and say you need to say the words or it will not get done when Finn had said the quote "But, in fact I was schooling these children, not to take charge of their lives... No opening for an argument"(Finn page 4) I think Delpit could have wrote this article. I think Delpit is very straightforward and stern. I believe she could help out in this particular situation.
Just like Jess, this piece also related to my service learning as well. In Jess's school the teachers use sarcastic tones with their students. This is how my teachers are as well. I am in a Kindergarten and 2nd grade classroom. I see it more with the 2nd grade teacher then the Kindergarten. I feel as though the teachers at the school I am at do not have the patience to help these kids. This is part of the reason is part of the reason why the students are the way they are. Part of it is because of there family. But I think if teachers had the patiences to help these students it would make a big difference.
