Read  the directions provided below then post and reply to the discussion  prompt (400 words or more for each entry and TWO Replies). Discussion  first entries are due on a Monday and the replies are due no later than  the subsequent Friday. 

Discussion Topic:

In  Chapter 3 of your textbook, various methodological techniques for  studying the social world are discussed. A key aspect of sociological  research is utilizing the power of observation. Applying what you have  learned about sociological research: First, discuss the role of  observational research as a key methodology for studying society.  Second, utilizing nonparticipant observation, participant observation,  ethnography or netnography observe and record a detailed account of a  social context or virtual social context that you are no stranger to  (think local coffee shop, shopping mall, church or night club, a blog,  twitter feed, or Instagram) from a sociological perspective. Be careful  to be objective and ethically neutral. Do not include judgments or  opinions of behaviors but rather, as best as possible, systematic  observations. Third, discuss how a common-sense view of that social  setting may look different from a sociological one. Does looking through  the lens of sociological research methodology transform how that social  space may be viewed. Substantiate your views. Fourth and finally, post a  response to another classmate’s posting discussing your thoughts in a  respectful and thoughtful manner. What stood out to you about their  observations and the behaviors occurring?
