General description: The purpose of this exercise if for you to observe ONE social setting to begin to detect patterns in human behavior – observance of norms and potentially behaviors that deviate from the norm. This week’s exercise includes two parts. First, you will need to go to ONE public place and observe the people there for 25 minutes. Note people’s behavior, their demeanor, their reactions/interactions to/with each other. Second, you will break a norm and observe people’s reactions to your norm breaking behavior. Your observation write-up must be 2 pages and must include a sociological analysis (using at least 4 sociological concepts) of your observations as well as a ‘thick’ description of your observations and norm-breaking activity.
Norm-breaking activity could be randomly dancing in a park. I don’t expect you to go out and observe individuals; you can make up what you saw while sitting in a park or shopping area. For example teenagers with colored hair and black clothing etc. and relate them to sociological concepts. Thank you.
