This is illustrated by a well-known quote: “As I sat and listened, I learned the answers to questions I would not have the sense to ask if I had been getting my information solely on an interview basis.” By W.F....   [tags: Participant Observation] 610 words

Child Observation Report - Recently, I went to The Happy School, a preschool in my hometown of Smallville, California, to pass the morning with the students there. In the time I spent there, the children, ages 3 to 5, engaged in unstructured play, and sat in a circle for calendar time and reading aloud. The preschool is primarily child-centered in terms of its organization, meaning it incorporates a lot of child directed activity, and less structured, or adult directed, learning (Berk, 2008).

Observation of Chicago Lobbies - Walking the various spaces for this assignment led me to be struck by the various ways space is used to create an impression, even an emotional response. Of the locations visited, the Thompson Center and Palmer House-Hilton seemed to use this to the most effect. I also had a strong reaction to the interior of the Chicago Cultural Center and discuss that here as well. The atrium of the Thompson Center is an impressive, imposing space. The skeletal framing of the building is visible throughout, creating awareness of the structure itself....   [tags: Observation Essay, Descriptive Essay] 560 words

Reasons they note for the limited participation of the anthropologist include the exclusion of the anthropologist from activities due to the mistrust of the outsider in their community, which they may believe could pose a threat to their homes and the community (p.93)....   [tags: Anthropology Essays]
