Question description

Observation

You and a partner are to observe a male and female conversing for ten minutes. Take copious notes on the observation, paying attention to body language (i.e., the way they are sitting, the way they move their legs, hands, and torso) and their facial expressions. The purpose of this assignment is not to capture them in time like a picture, but to show the ongoing interaction like a movie. 

There is to be NO dialogue at all. You are strictly observing expressions and gestures. 

Format:

1) State where you. (Community of Discourse)

2) State who are your participants (roughly their age, sex, race or ethnicity).

3) What you observed. This section should be rich with description and avoid interpretation. 

For example)

Yes Mary crosses her legs toward Jim and smiles in such a way that slightly shows her teeth, 

No Mary looked happy because she was smiling and I could tell they were on a date. 

Structure: memo format____________________________________________________________________________

Observation: This is where you give a detailed account of your observations.
