The theoretical paradigm of symbolic interaction has the potential to resonate with students because they can apply it to their everyday lives and to specific social exchanges. However, due to the abstract nature of theory, students may struggle to understand the ways we can apply this framework to actual human interactions. This activity is a tool for introducing symbolic interaction in any classroom context. It focuses on ways observed behaviors are rooted in meanings constructed by social actors. It works well at introductory levels as well as in advanced courses on sociological theory. Students are invited to examine an episode of a comedic sitcom, Seinfeld, using the core ideas of symbolic interaction and then generate examples from their own lives.
