Sociology Norm Project

It is your job to conduct your own ethnomethodological experiment by breaking a norm and then observing what happens. Answer the following questions about your experience.

1.What norm did you violate to conduct your ethnomethodological experiment? [Be sure to state your norm in the form of a rule. For example, “look both ways before you cross the street.”) Is it a proscriptive norm or a prescriptive norm? Is it a folkway or a more?

2.Provide a detailed description of what you did and how others responded.

3.What background assumptions did your experiment bring to light? How so?

4.What did you learn by conducting this experiment? What most surprised you as you conducted this experiment?
