SOCIOMETRY IN THE CLASSROOM:

HOW TO DO IT




STEP 15


Using the above symbols, the next step is to transfer the obtained slip patterns to a "drawing". If you want to do a neat job and are not too sure of your drawing ability, an easy trick is to use small round and square gummed labels. Remove the slips of paper, one at a time, and place a circle, or a square, for each name or coded number slip, write the name or code number in the figure, and draw a line connecting the circles or squares with an arrow pointing to the name or number chosen. For example Norris chose Justin, so the arrow points to Justin in FIGURE 13. NOTE: REMEMBER THE PERSON WHO MADE THE CHOICE IS ALWAYS ON THE LEFT; THE PERSON CHOSEN IS ON THE RIGHT, TOWARD THE FOLDED EDGE!




Continue until all slips have been removed and the total pattern has been transferred to paper (FIGURE 14). This forms the basic pattern for the sociogram. Second and third choices are elaborations superimposed on this pattern... with some re-arranging.
