C122 Interpersonal Communication Greetings Assignment Due: Thursday February 3 rd at the beginning of class Worth: 50 points (5% of your final grade) Requirements: You will hand in both jottings and fieldnotes. Jottings can be handwritten. Fieldnotes should be one to two pages long, typed double-spaced, in Times New Roman 12 point font with one inch margins. The Assignment This assignment allows you to practice your ethnographic observation skills. Go to a local coffee house or a campus food court Watch how people greet each other. Jot notes on interesting greetings, writing as much possible about them, including what people look like, what people say to each other, what their body language looks like, what tone of voice they use, and what you think the “social business” or ends of these interactions are. Once you get a feel for the rhythm and typical sequence of greetings in that area, choose one greeting to focus on. Observe it carefully and jot some notes about it. Greetings are often very brief. So after it finishes, continue to jot notes so that you record your observations in some detail. Finally, write up a “thick description” of your observations in the form of fieldnotes. More on Jottings Jottings are handwritten notes that you take as you are observing or just after you have observed interactions. These notes should be handed in with your fieldnotes.

    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.
