Project description
Directions: FIELDWORK ESSAY (Notes) (Grading Rubric)

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 compliment 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) are they using? How often do they use each one? Are they aware of these gestures?
