Ethnography Samples and Instructions

Before you begin typing up your ethnography draft, please take a few minutes to read over an ethnography from Mrs. Cary’s CIS writing class.

Follow this link and pick one ethnography to read. They will all be a little bit different, but they follow the same format. Remember these are several times longer than your’s needs to be. Your ethnography should only be around 700-900 words long. If you want to go longer, you can, but it is not required and won’t necessarily help your grade.

Once you feel like you are ready to start writing, take a look over your assignment description. The second page has instructions on putting together your ethnography. You can borrow heavily from your preconception in the introduction and first part of the paper.

If you have questions… relax. Everybody does. Just give this a try first and do your best. Remember that this is a first draft.

Jessi put together a helpful note sheet for you if you’d like. Just click the images below to see the paper in actual size.
