This Nonverbal Communication Observation Assignment is due at the conclusion of Module 3. This assignment is worth a total of 75 points.
Nonverbal communication is “the use of body language as opposed to the spoken word.” What that means is that our bodies give off messages when we are, or are not, speaking. NV communication does not include what I say, but does include how I say it. This is an area in which most communicators are not aware and do not pay close attention to. When we do not pay attention to our body language, we may give off a message that we did not intend to give. Emotions, especially, are revealed in our body language and can sometime contradict, or compliment, what we say. Nonverbal specialist and trainer Janine Driver always says: “you say more than you think!”
For this exercise, you are going to sit and observe speakers in a natural setting. What you will do is find a place and sit for 30-45 minutes and watch. You will observe three different conversations. Even if you do not hear what the speakers say, observe their bodies and attempt to interpret what their bodies are saying. Are their bodies complimenting? Are they excited (this can be seen when our bodies become more excited by showing more animation)? Is someone angry? Is there an argument occurring? Can you see if people are attracted to each other or possibly in a romantic relationship? Can you see the difference between men and women in their body orientation (men tend to stand at angles while women tend to speak straight on to each other…consider feminine and masculine behaviors here as well)? Can you possible tell if there is any other emotion in their body language (happiness, sadness, fear, disgust, contempt)? What do you see?
In your observations, think of what we discussed in this module. Look at their: Kinesics (body movement, gestures, postures),Oculesics (facial expressions…are emotions seen here?),Haptics (touch…is someone touching another and how: hand on their arm, playful hitting, angry hitting, etc.),Proxemics (how far or close are they standing or sitting)?If you can hear them, is there anything in their vocalics (tone, pitch, volume) that says something?Is their physical attractiveness (message relayed the way they are dressed) a part of their posture or gestures?Even chronemics (time)…were they speaking quickly to leave the situation? In anything you see, what is your interpretation?
You can sit in the food court of a mall, go to a restaurant or busy store, or if you have a lot of people at your workplace you can observe there. Anywhere you can find people. Take your time and watch (It will be obvious in your summary if you slapped words on a page, so do not do that), but try not to be too “stalker-y”! You may do your observations with a friend and you may discuss what you see with each other; but you must do your assignment separately.

Early research in an area of clinical treatment tends to include single case study reports, observational studies, or studies of treatment without any comparison groups. What are advantages of moving to experimental designs to evaluate a treatment? What might be some difficulties in following rules for proper/valid experimental designs when evaluating a type of clinical treatment? Be specific in your answers and give examples.
Review the assigned article, “The Eating Disorders Continuum, Self-Esteem, and Perfectionism.” What multivariate design was used? What was an interesting finding?
Start the assignment with, “For my sensation/perception phenomenon this week I chose (fill in the name of the phenomenon) _________” and then go on to give a brief description of who the phenomenon works (don’t dwell here–we can all read the details in the textbook or in an article–just provide enough so we understand what happens with the phenomenon) and describe your everyday example of the occurrence of the phenomenon and how it could have serious consequences. The phenomenon can be one occurring in persons not suffering any pathology (like the example below–pretty much everybody experiences what happens to our ability to differentiate colors and their brightness around dusk…it’s not abnormal at all) or it can be the result of a disorder or injury. And of course, the phenomenon won’t always be about vision.
Finally, while it’s expected that more than one person might pick the same phenomenon — we have lots of them to work with but the number is not infinite — if you repeatedly only select what others have already done or your post essentially replicates the work of another student has already posted points won’t be assigned and a pattern of doing so will void your forum points, as will a pattern of posting work that isn’t instructions compliant.
This week’s example: In the 1800s, Mathia Plotz was painting a military portrait and noted that some features of the uniform appeared to change colors and the colors became less distinguishable from one another toward dusk. Plotz had experienced something called the “Purkinje Effect” in which the ability to distinguish brightness of colors, particularly red and blue, diminishes as the colors darken. Toward dusk there would be less light and the colors of the uniforms of Plotz’s portrait subjects would grow less distinct as the light around him darkened near the end of the day. Being able to distinguish uniform colors may only impact Plotz’s ability to produce accurate and attractive portraits (he either needed to paint in better light or be able to lay down paint in ways that accurately captured the subdued, murkiness of the dusk viewing experience–if you’ve ever seen an artist attempt to paint an evening scene and fail because the color selections and contrasts weren’t right, you know what is meant here is that paintings are supposed to, but don’t always successfully, replicate an evening versus bright light of day viewing experience via color brightness and contrast), something that might affect his livelihood, but trouble seeing uniform colors and distinguishing uniforms from other objects in one’s world also could have very serious implications! You may find it difficult to see an enemy soldier in hiding toward dusk or you may have trouble telling enemies from friendlies during a dusk raid or battle.

hroughout this course, you have evaluated the relationship between play and learning for young children. For this Final Paper, you will assume the role of an early care provider or administrator. In this hypothetical role, you have become aware that several parents are critical of your decision to provide time for children to engage in activities such as dramatic play and peer-to-peer conversations. Most of the parents do not understand the developmental value of these activities; they tend to believe that a quiet classroom is one in which students are engaged in “real” learning. The parents are requesting that you spend more time on “academics.” Your goal is to construct a paper that presents your framework of play and learning for the young child so you can effectively communicate with family members about the need for play as an integrated part of the curriculum. The prompt for this assignment was adapted from Charlesworth (2013, p. 358).
Note: For the purposes of this course we use the term parents; however, this may also include primary care- givers, family members, and parental guardians.
