Observing Identities 1. As an individual or in groups up to three people , find a public place on campus where you can observe people interacting. Take detailed notes on any factors that contribute to the interactants’ identities. Pay attention to the interaction, but do not listen to the conversation itself, as that is invasion of privacy. Pay attention to personal artifacts (do NOT note information that can be used to identify the people!), appearance, nonverbal communication, etc. Your attention should be on detail of information rather than quantity (you should take about 15 minutes to observe, but a highly detailed explanation of a five-minute encounter is better than a vague description of a 20-minute encounter). Once you have made your fieldwork notes, fill out the information below and tear off the bottom half of this paper. Return the bottom portion of this sheet to me by the end of class time. You need only turn in one paper per group. DO NOT TURN IN NOTES YET.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
