Product Description
The purpose of the assignment is to get students started in observing, taking notes, writing descriptive details, and to give them the experience of being a non-participant (passive) observer. Non-participant (passive) observations are defined as a relatively unobtrusive qualitative research strategy for gathering primary data about some aspect of the social world without interacting directly with its participants.

This lesson is geared towards 11th / 12th grade students who are enrolled in a Journalism course OR if you are teaching them about descriptive writing in an ELA course. This is an excellent lesson bundle that also contains the research assignment. I have done this lesson bundle with 11th and 12th grades students and they loved it! It is challenging and gets them ready for college-level writing and coursework in research and qualitative writing.

The package contains:
Lesson 1 - The difference between quantitative and qualitative writing.
- Includes a Powerpoint file lesson to display on a projector
- PollEverywhere questions to ask students at the end of Lesson 1
- A Google Form template of open-ended questions for students at the end of Lesson 1. These questions can be given in a Google Form as an exit / reflection exercise or assigned for classwork or homework.

Lesson 2: Nonparticipant observation, Essential Questions, Purpose Statements, and Jottings
- Includes a Powerpoint file on the importance of nonparticipant observation, the purpose of and creating essential questions, creating a purpose statement, and the importance of writing jottings.
- In-class exercise for students to practice writing jottings.

Lesson 3: Descriptive Writing
Includes one Powerpoint file lesson on descriptive writing.
