What observations should I record?
“Fieldnotes” are the notes you make while doing research “in the field” (i.e. in court).
To help you get organized, I have created a fieldnote template that you can print and
bring with you to court. I recommend documenting your observations in 15 minute
increments under the following broad headings:
Setting (architecture, furniture, layout, general “vibe”, rituals, routines)
People (key actors, gender, race, clothing, facial expressions, spoken words)
Interactions (friendly, professional, task-oriented, interruptions, who’s in charge?)
Reflections (thoughts, feelings, judgments, expectations, assumptions, misconceptions)
How do I record my observations?
Step 1: Jot Notes
These are the notes you make in your fieldnote template. They are brief notes that will
help you recall additional details later on.
Step 2: Recap Timeline
I recommend heading to a coffee shop, library or home computer shortly after your
court observation and begin drafting a chronological description of what you
Documenting your fieldnotes in 15 minute increments will assist very much with this
task. These descriptions will feed directly into your essay. Sooner is better than later as
you will find it hard to recollect what you observed.
Step 3: Describe Relevant Scenes and Events
Shortly after your court observation, you will also want to provide a detailed
description of relevant scenes and events. These should tie directly to your topic.
Remember, the goal of this assignment is to record what you observe, but also to
make some claims in relation to your chosen topic.
Topic: Role of defence counsel
Jot Notes: accused = young woman, crime = theft under
5k lawyer delayed, judge annoyed, room 201
Timeline: I entered room #201 at 9:55 a.m. The judge emerged from her chambers
shortly before 10:00 a.m. The proceedings were scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. The
proceedings began at 10:10 a.m.
Relevant Events: I entered room #201 shortly before the proceedings were set to begin
at 10:00 a.m. The accused was approximately 25 years old and appeared nervous. She
was a slender woman with medium length black hair. The accused was charged with
theft under $5000 for a shoplifting incident that took place at Polo Park mall. When the
judge emerged from her chambers, she inquired about the whereabouts of the accused’s
lawyer. The accused stated her lawyer was caught in traffic and would be arriving
shortly. The judge frowned and said they would only wait for “a few minutes” before
rescheduling the case.
Step 4: Analyze Your Fieldnotes
Once you have transformed your jot notes into a timeline and described several key
events, I recommend setting your work aside for a few days and then returning
with the intention of connecting your observations to your topic using the following
questions as a guide:
What are people doing? What are people trying to accomplish?
Who has/does not have power? How do people talk about what is going on?
What strategies do they use? What assumptions are people making?
What do I see going on here? What is at stake?
What did I learn from these notes? How does it all fit together?
Step 5: Incorporate Your Fieldnotes into an Essay
Once you have analyzed your fieldnotes and sketched some preliminary connections to
your topic, you are ready to incorporate your fieldnotes into an essay. I highly
recommend using the essay outline template as this helps you organize your ideas.
Please include the following elements:
Introduction: What is your topic? What claim(s) are you making in relation to
your topic? E.g. The role of X is to Y
Setting the Scene: How and where did you gather your data? (use fieldnotes)
Provide evidence for your claim(s): What did you observe? How does this relate to
your claim? (use fieldnotes)
Conclusion: What are the implications? Questions for future contemplation?

%3Ciframe%20width=%22640%22%20height=%22360%22%20src=%22https//www.youtube.com/embed/wPsOK3Qg3dY%22%20title=%22Yo…materials This week we are learning about literary text. Literary text includes stories, dramas, and poetry. Literary text can be recognized by its story structure, which is identified as setting, characters, problem, sequence of events, outcome, and theme. Setting- Where are when does the story take place? Characters- Who is the story about? Problem- What is the problem the character faces? Sequence of Events- What does the main character do about the problem? Outcome- How does the story turn out? Theme- What lessons does the main character learn? Comprehension strategies can be taught while reading a literary text. These include: Recognizing Story Structure: Teachers guide students in analyzing the plot, characters, setting, and conflicts of a story. Predicting: Teachers guide students to make predictions based on prior knowledge or story structure. Monitoring Comprehension: Teachers model thinking aloud self-monitoring questions. Connecting World Knowledge: Teachers guide students to connect to relevant prior experiences or to other stories. Asking Questions: Initially teachers model the types of questions readers need to ask while reading. Answering Questions: Teacher directed questions can encourage deeper levels of comprehension. Constructing Mental Images: Teachers provide explicit teaching to help students create mental images as they read. Summarizing/Retelling: Narrative text summaries often take the form of retelling and focus on story elements. Story Map: A story map is a strategy that uses a graphic organizer to help students learn the elements/story structure of a book or story. Plot Diagram: A plot diagram is a tool that is commonly used to organize a story into certain segments. It is usually the most exciting part of the story and the part that makes the reader want to keep reading. The falling action is the events that happen after the climax that led to a resolution or ending to the story. Cloze Response: Students fill in blanks in a passage by choosing, from a bank of suggested words, the one word that best completes the sentence. Maze CBM: Students choose one out of three possible words that makes the best sense in the sentence. Open-Ended: Students construct oral or written responses to questions about a passage. Multiple-Choice: Students select the best response to a question about a passage. Retelling: Students are prompted to orally retell or reconstruct what they remember about a passage. Writing Into: make connections between text and self, other texts, and theme Writing Through: chart information identify important information, supporting details, and plot points explore characters, setting and other literary elements Writing Out: reflect and respond give personal, creative, and/or critical responses Reader’s Theatre: Students perform with oral reading practice while improving fluency and enhancing comprehension. Literature Circles: In literature circles, small groups of students gather to discuss a piece of literature in depth. Attached you will find two PowerPoint presentations that will assist you during the required reading, discussion session and this week’s assignment. Peruse through the following pages from the Teaching Reading Sourcebook- pages 634-680. Literary Text.pptx Literary Elements in Children’s Literature.pptx

In the past few years, there have been several significant decisions that have resulted from challenges to the admissibility of fingerprint evidence (Daubert hearings). Where do we stand now? Describe one case, or ruling, that helped to establish the current state of fingerprint evidence in a court of law? After reading chapter 14 of our textbook, what research can still be done to reinforce the assertion that identification based on fingerprints is a science?
