SEASON 1 - Jefferson Elementary School
Does the character excel in school?
When the series begins, Cory is easily distracted and often likes to be disruptive in the classroom. He often daydreams and socializes instead of paying attention in class. He regularly receives poor grades on his assignments and is often disciplined by his teacher and next door neighbor, Mr. Feeny
What is the socioeconomic status of the character?
Cory comes from a middle class family. He lives with his parents and two siblings: an older brother and a younger sister. His father is a manager at a local grocery store. His mother works but her job isn't clearly stated.
What interests does the student have?
Cory loves baseball, telling jokes and hanging out with his best friend Shawn.
If the student were in your class, what strategies and technologies could you use to assist this student?
Because of his interest in baseball and telling jokes, I might try to find educational computer games that incorporate some sort of sports activity. I would try to connect concepts and give examples to problems that include sports related content, and I may try to find ways to inject humor into instruction to provide a level of engagement.
Is this student “College Ready”?
Cory is far from college ready in the first few seasons of the show. His dream is to become a famous baseball player and he is under the impression that a strong education is unnecessary to achieve that goal.
