KINESICS: the study of body motion or body behavior.
Emblems: gestures that have a direct verbal translation and can stand alone such as the “ok” sign.
Illustrators: gestures that complement our words such as pointing when giving directions.
Regulators: gestures that may prolong or terminate the conversation such as looking at your watch, walking away, or nodding and leaning forward.
Adaptors: gestures that make you feel more comfortable in a communication situation such as twirling your hair or tapping your fingers.
Affect Displays: facial expressions motivated by emotion such as a smile or frown.
In this lesson, you will venture out and observe the people around you. Tune out what they are saying and then sit back and watch. Take notes on what type of gestures (emblems, regulators, illustrators, adaptors and affect displays – see further details below) are they using? How often do they use each one? Are they aware of these gestures? You will then use your notes to write a typed two-page essay describing what you witnessed. Please let us know where you were (for example the mall, Starbucks, work etc.) and who was involved (for example two men sitting at a table).
COVID-19 Note: You do not have to go outside for this assignment. You can also do your observation in your own home and observe family members/roommates. As a last resort, you can also “observe” people in a movie (make sure to message me beforehand to get approval for the movie; I want to make sure no two students “observe” the same movie). Always mention where you did your observation.
Describe at least ten separate gestures and answer the following prompts (in essay format, NOT in bullet-points!)
What type of gesture was used?
Name, define and describe each gesture
What are the gestures conveying?
How many repetitions did the speakers use?
Did the speaker seem aware of the gestures? How did the other person react?
What are the circumstances?
Please submit your essay to this dropbox and include the following:
At least two pages typed– MINIMUM of 675 words
Double spaced
Paragraphs, not bullets
Include nonverbal terminology
Specific examples from your observations
Reminder: All written work must comply with standard English rules, such as proper capitalization, grammar and spelling. The assignment must be submitted by the deadline listed on the calendar.
please write as if observing family members. Thank you
