Unlocking the Power of Social Observation as a Social Detective
Everything we do socially starts with observation. What we notice and how we make sense of that is especially important for situations that are new. The start of a new school year is full of new situations, new people, new routines, new expectations…. Being a social observer or detective is a way to get organized around all that is new.
