Observe the activities at a public place for two hours. Choose a place where you do not need to ask
permission to stay and will not get in trouble for observing what is going on. This can be a coffee shop, a
farmer’s market, a mall, a religious service, a train station, a courtroom, etc. Avoid schools, hospitals,
anything on a military base, or any other restricted place. Make sure to go at a time when there will be a
lot of activity. Take some notes about what is happening: What does this place look like? How is it
organized spatially? Who comes here? What do they do? How do people interact with each other? What
kind of conversations go on? Are there any subgroups? How do people handle unexpected or upsetting
situations?
Write a narrative summary of your notes describing what you experienced. Then, explain how each of
the three sociological perspectives (structural-functionalism, symbolic interactionism, and social
conflict) would analyze what you say. Your description of your observation should represent about
50% of your paper and your analysis another 50%, divided evenly between the three perspectives. At the
end of your paper, discuss which perspective you think is the best suited to analyze your observation and
why you think so. Whenever appropriate, link the information you present to concepts, theories, facts, and
core values of “community and social justice” from the course.
You may use additional resources, provided they are appropriately cited. You are required to use the
American Sociological Association (ASA) formatting style to format your paper and sources. The paper will be a minimum of seven (7) pages in length and include a title page and a reference page,
using a standard 12-point font. You may use additional resources, provided they are appropriately cited.
