You can choose to be a complete participant, participant observer, or complete observer. The activity that you observe should last at least ten minutes. Describe the setting of the activity, the behavior of most, if not all, of the individuals involved, and your understanding and analysis of what occurred during the time of your observation. What did you learn about the people involved and the context within which they acted?
