Observation Project:Due via TurnItIn.com Monday, March 18, 2019 by 5.00pmAs with the survey project, you will work in your group to collect data. Students are encouraged to lookat the data together in preparation for writing up the report; however, each student must writehis/her own report independently. Copying another student's work will result in a 2 letter gradededuction.Data CollectionTrying to understand human social behavior is sometimes best done by close observation,documentation and analysis of that behavior. In this exercise, you should apply what you havelearned to design a small study which describes patterns in social behavior in a setting you choose.The setting can be mundane (a campus eatery, a bus stop, family life in the kitchen) or more unusual(a specialized kendo club, alcoholics anonymous meetings, a funeral home, 3rd Street, a museum).You should formulate a place of interest and have a plan for who, what, when and how you willobserve people's behavior there. The field work will involve the following:1) Identify a field site where you can observe and find one interviewee(public settings require nospecific permission).2) Once you have identified your field site, you should work in your group to make field notes(discussed in class) that total approximately 15 hours of observation (students in a group mustobserve in the same settingbut can observe at the same or different times to reach this total).
