Complete Your Real-Life Observation Activity

This exercise will give you an opportunity to try your skills as participant observer. 

You have now selected which activity you will be completing. 

For each of these exercises you will be asked to take nothing but your eyes, ears and notebook or electronic device (to be used only for recording your observations).  

Your goals in this exercise are to...
    1. Observe and describe your chosen venue without being judgmental or presumptuous.
    2. Identify your own feelings and attitudes as you make your observations. 
    3. Have fun!

  1. Spend approximately one hour of observation, recording your observations.
  2. Review your notes before participating in the next discussion forum.
