Peer Group Dynamics Sociogram
This Sociogram example is made on the basis of pupils' nominations of classmates in response to questions. The exact wording of the questions can vary depending on interests, but a common scenario involves asking pupils to nominate three classmates with whom they most like to play/spend free time and three classmates with whom they least like to play/spend free time. Recording the positive and negative nominations received by each pupil helps teachers to be aware of patterns of acceptance and rejection within the peer group. The sociogram reveals the peer group dynamics of a class or other pupil group in a visual and accessible way.
