discussion -4 NCM

Q1)  Students are to observe two or more adults unknown to the observer. The student must not be able to hear the subjects being observed and those being observed must not be wearing a uniform of any kind as this would provide information about their occupation to the observer. Students must describe the environment and the people being observed, i.e., age, gender, dress, etc. Discuss nonverbal communication, i.e. eye contact, body position, and any other nonverbal behavior. Provide your interpretation of the relationship between those being observed. Be very discrete and do not have a conversation with those being observed. 

2)   Discusses four types of perceptual distortions: stereotyping, halo effects, selective perception, and projection. Define each of these and provide an example. 

  you are required to write an initial post (300 words) for each question. The discussion forums will be worth 40 points apiece—25 points for the initial post and 15 points for the secondary post.  For your post, you must have two academic peer-reviewed articles for references for each question.  You must get them from the library.  There are directions at the top of our Moodle page showing how to utilize the library.
