Where you sat or stood and how you managed to be

This preview shows page 4 - 5 out of 5 pages.

• A description of your location and why you chose it. • Where you sat (or stood) and how you managed to be unobtrusive. • A detailed description of your technique for estimating distance. • The social categories you chose, how you defined them, and why you picked those groups. III. A Results and Discussion section. In this section you will report your results and give them meaning (do this based on your data, even though we are NOT asking you to compute statistical analyses on your data to assess the likelihood that the differences you obtained are due to chance or not). This section will include: • The two tables described above (include titles and units such as inches). • A summary – a clear description of your results reported in each of the tables. • Interpretation of your results (explain what you think your results mean). Be sure to talk about both tables separately, since they look at the data in different ways (and answer different questions). Refer back to your hypotheses! Did your data confirm them, or were the data inconsistent with them. • Any methodological problems or issues that may have affected the results you obtained. • Discussion in paragraph form that answers the following questions: 1. Considering your interpretation of both tables, what conclusions can you draw about social categorization and discrimination? 2. How can subtle behaviors such as the distance people stand from one another affect people’s lives? 3. What implications do your results have for prejudice, intergroup relations, and discrimination? 4. Would you have noticed what you found in your observations if you had not been asked to look carefully and systematically? 4

    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.
