This lesson includes a PowerPoint slideshow that walks students through making sociological observations and writing about what they see. Keeping in mind key ideas such as socialization, roles, groups, and the three sociological perspectives, students keep a journal of observations they make at school, home, in the mall, wherever!
Also included are .doc and .pdf versions of written guidelines and directions that also include a rubric.
I had my students keep a journal with one observation a week in our 10-week elective but it can be modified to suit your class structure.
