Identifying the types of interaction


Objective: You will be observing everyday behaviors and identifying the types of interaction as well as completing a written analysis of people’s behaviors.

Instructions: Take 2 hours to intensively observe the behaviors of the people around you. You can select any environment: the mall, your workplace, the park, your classroom etc. Within your written analysis of the environment observed make sure you note where you are at the time of your observation and describe the interactions you observed by using 2 concepts and/or theories you have learned from chapters 4&5 in your textbook. Just mentioning social concepts and/or theories within the analysis presented is unacceptable. It is important to explain how the social concepts/theories and/or theories represent the observations you have described.
