The Group assignment is about developing a Communications Strategy or Marketing Plan to address a particular government communications issue or challenge. Each plan will be directly linked to the course reading and include appropriate research through Internet sources, government and stakeholder websites, journals and newspapers, and other sources to familiarize students with the issue’s status and determine current debates and actions. The formal presentation will be followed by a discussion intended to explore the matter further and provide the class with an opportunity to comment on the team’s strategy and approaches. The final written submission is due on October 17th. However, it will be necessary for each team to have completed sufficient work on the assignment to present their work in summary form to the class successfully. The ensuing class discussion will assist each team in finalizing their final written submission. Please find below as a reminder a blurb of what the main components of a communication plan are.
To prepare for this post, visit the Free Listening Project story.
Engage in an online discussion by answering the following questions in an initial post. Then, be sure to respond at least once on a classmate’s post. Make both posts meaningful! (Really aim to advance the discussion about listening, NOT a huge political rant!):
a) Where have you experienced defensive listening lately – at home, work, or school? Is it more difficult to listen to certain topics than others?
b) What lesson did you learn from this article? Can you apply any part of this to your daily conversations when you are having difficulty seeing the other side of an argument?
c) Do you have another suggestion to help with listening when you disagree?
Review your This Is Me video. In that assignment, you explained who you are as a communicator through your self-concept and reflected appraisal by others in your life. In this paper, you will apply concepts from the sections on interpersonal communication in the text in an analysis of your own communication. The goal of this paper is to show that you understand interpersonal communication concepts by explaining them and illustrating how they are expressed in a relationship of your choosing.
Write 500-750 words.
Pick a relationship in your life (it will be easiest to choose a friendship or romantic relationship) to analyze.
Explain how the relationship has progressed and/or regressed using Mark Knapp’s stage development model (note: you need to give illustrations of communication scenarios/behaviors that show how you moved through the stages). You do not need to explain progress or regression through ALL of the stages, but you do need to highlight at least three to show change/development of the relationship.
Apply ONE of the following sets of concepts discussed in the text for this class to the analysis of communication in the relationship you are analyzing.
Leslie Baxter’s Relational Dialectics Theory
Interpersonal Conflict (nature of conflict and styles for managing conflict)
Waldron and Kelley’s Forgiveness Model
You may write in first person as you reflect on the relationship, but make sure that you cite scholars when applying concepts discussed in class or in the text.
