    • My Ethnographic Study by, Colleen O’Mara
    • Communication Education
    •  
    •  
    •  
    • Uncertainty Reduction Theory
      • Anxiety in a situation or environment due to level of uncertainty
      • Uncertainty must be reduced in order to feel at ease and more comfortable in that new environment or situation
      • Elementary School
      • told me their life stories
      • wanted to know all about me
      • extremely talkative
      • opened up quickly
      • Middle School
      • quite and shy
      • did not acknowledge me
      • talkative to each other, but not with teachers
      • slowly opened up
    • I was the foreigner!
    • By teaching a lesson, I was able to:
      • Self-disclose!
      • Talk to and get to know the students!
      • The students were able to self-disclose and open up to me!
    • Emphatic Listening
      • putting your own judgements and prejudices aside to listen to others’ ideas, thoughts, and opinions
    • Identities & Nexting
      • Middle schoolers want to find themselves and identify with others like them.
      • This age group thinks a lot about what committing a certain action or behavior will mean for their relationships with their peers.
    •  
    • Cliques Self-Esteem
    • Spiral of Silence Theory
      • Not voicing thoughts and opinions for fear of being judged or not accepted
      • Feel at bottom of “hierarchy”
      • Follow the crowd even if you do not agree
    • Negatives of Letting Students Choose Their Own Groups
      • Students will always be working with the same students
          • New ideas & strategies will never be shared
      • Students who are not chosen as part of a group will feel left out constantly
    • As I became more comfortable in the middle school, the middle schoolers became more comfortable around me!
