  • 1. UCP Bailes Science Lab
    Kristene Graves
    April 29, 2010
    EEX 4070.0W57 - Hines
  • 2. Early Perceptions
  • 3. Introduction to the Setting
    We volunteered at the UCP Bailes East Orange Campus, located in Research Park. We did most of our hours inside the science lab, pictured below. We also spent some time observing classes (not pictured).
  • 4. Site/Community Demographics
    21 classrooms with flat panels and other technology
    Observation rooms
    Gross motor room/therapy gym
    Virtual reality center
    2 Handicap-Accessible Playgrounds, ball field, nature and garden area
    • Inclusion
    • 5. Every kind of disability present
    • 6. A majority of time is spent in the classroom on reading and literacy, so there isn’t a lot of time for science
  • Personal Demographics
    Elementary Ed major
    Junior Achievement and reading tutoring
    Hobbies include reading, movies and cooking
  • 7. Getting Started
    I talked with Kelly Grillo on the Teachers in Action Webchats, and she told me about the project she wanted to start
    She said that she wanted to create science labs and lessons for the students at UCP Bailes, because that had a science lab but they didn’t use it
  • 8. Engagement Activities
    We met every Tuesday morning starting in January
    Our first task was to create a learning center
    After that, each of our group-mates worked on creating a lesson that fulfilled one of the science big ideas for K-2nd grade
  • 9. Participant Demographics
    Our service learning group:
    Kelly Grillo (Coordinator)
    Kristene Graves
    Molly Lonergan
    Valerie Koheler
    Jessica Delgado
    Lauretta Mills
    Ashlee Gibbon
    Our group’s age range is from 20-30. Kelly has a learning disability, which she shared about during our time together.
    The service recipients are the students at UCP Bailes (East Orlando) from grades K-2
    These students are a combination of students who are normally developing and students who have varying exceptionalities
    Around 100 students were served this semester, and our group laid the groundwork for more groups to serve more students for many years to come!
  • 10. Reflection of your Experience
    What I’ve Learned:
    People, and disabilities, come in all shapes and sizes
    Accommodating lessons for all learners is easy once you have the right mindset and tools
    It’s sometimes more challenging and nerve-wracking to present to peers who will critique you than kids who don’t know you might have messed up
    All students are PEOPLE first
  • 11. Thanks Teachers in Action for making this project such a great learning experience!
