naturalistic observation1
Naturalistic Observation
  • observing and recording behavior in naturally occurring situations without trying to manipulate and control the situation.
your project
Your Project

your sample1
Your Sample
  • You must observe at least 50 people.
you need to
You need to:
  • Choose a group (no more than 4 people). I suggest picking people with the same lunch period as you.
  • Decide which people you will be observing (e.g. every 3rd person, every 8th person, etc.)
you need to1
You need to:
  • Create a hypothesis about what you think you will see during your observations.
you need to2
You need to:
  • Create operation definitions for “anger” and “happiness”.
  • These need to be SPECIFIC and OBSERVABLE.
  • So, “mad” or “joyful” won’t cut it.
operational definitions
Operational Definitions
  • Right now, create your personal operational definitions for “anger” and “happiness” INDEPENDENTLY.
  • Now, share out with your group.
  • As a group, create your operational definitions that you will observe.
collecting your data
Collecting your data:
  • On paper, simply note the gender of the person you are observing.
  • Watch them for one minute. Then note if they show ‘anger’ or ‘happiness’.
  • Watch the following clip and decide whether you see anger or happiness BASED ON YOUR OPERATIONAL DEFINITIONS!
operational definitions1
Operational Definitions
  • Decide whether you need to change anything in your definitions after trying them out with a video.
  • Share out your definitions with the group.
  • Edit again if necessary.
