Sociology 150Fall 2015Field Report 3: Turning Observations Into Usable DataThe third field report will be due in class and on-line on MONDAY, NOVEMBER 9. This document should be written conscientiously and reflect your thinking about field work and your discoveries in the field. You may submit up to TWO pages of single spaced text in this assignment, which has been designed to help you specify the agenda in your research and establish that you are on track to have the data necessary to write a solid analytical final report about the social construction of a sociologically significant identity among individuals. Use bullet points and write briefly to cover the three sections of the report within the page limits.Goals for this Report:In this submission we are looking for increased clarity about several features of your study:Characteristics of the identity, social role performance, or attitudes and behaviors that you are writing about. The social agents or features of the situation display and transmit the meanings involved in the construction of that identity at your study site. Begin reporting your observations on the way human actors are affected by the “definitions of the situation” about themselves, others, or the world that they are exposed to, which are embedded in the, interactions, ideologies (belief and meaning systems), symbolic representations, physical space, or expressions of power in their social environments.Components of this Report and your SubmissionThis interim report should have several parts: Part A: An update on field work; Part B: Check in on your study claims. MOST IMPORTANT SECTIONThis check in should show us your clarity on defining the factors of the environment (X) that shape your identity of interest (the behavior, social role, belief set, and its markers) (Y) and the way they fit with each other, such that exploring and reporting on specific factors of the social environment should help
us understand the way an identity or role etc., is acquired and develops, or how X (Society or some specific elements of it) influences Y (Identity). Part C. Preliminary Data.
