Our social perception

Module Overview

Originated by: Dr Felicia Rivera Megret

This is the study of how people form impressions of and make inferences about other people. People learn about others’ feelings and emotions by picking up information they gather from physical appearance, verbal, and nonverbal communication.

Facial expressions, tone of voice, hand gestures, and body position or movement are just a few examples of ways people communicate without words. There are four main components of social perception: observation, attribution, integration, and confirmation.

This module looks at what social perceptions are, how they are formed, what influences perceptions and impressions and what cultural influences to bear on them.

We will explore

  • What is social perception?
  • What influences social perception?
  • What part the senses play in perception
  • How we make decisions based on our perception
  • Class discussion and activities around perception


We are continously working to improve and update our material to ensure it is meeting the needs of students and teachers alike.

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plan
  • PowerPoint presentation
  • Observation of thoughts
  • Teacher assessment
  • Wordsearch

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
