Need help with my Communications question – I’m studying for my class.
|This assignment will be submitted to Turnitin®.|
Goal: The goal of this assignment is to write a well thought out paper about how people react to intimate communication.
Course Objective(s): CO 2, 3, & 4
For your Reaction Paper, you have two options. Please review them carefully to ensure you choose the one from which you will benefit most. Note that each option must be written in essay format (do not answer the questions in a question/answer format). The essay must include a clear introduction (including a thesis), body and conclusion in APA format. The sample paper attached to the assignment details provides a clear example of the formatting and paper expectations for this assignment.
These are the questions/points to consider to which you should respond in your reaction paper:
This option allows you to choose from a selection of several chapters of books by scholar Deborah Tannen that are available electronically from the APUS library. As with the other option, your paper should be at least five pages (roughly 1,250 words) in length. Additional sources or references are not required for this assignment, but if you quote, paraphrase, or summarize a source (including the reading or the text), you must document it following APA format.
These are the questions/points to ponder that you can use to develop your reaction paper, but feel free to ask yourself additional questions. Remember that this paper should give your reaction to what you have read, meaning you may agree, disagree, or both. However, you cannot merely say you agree. You must explain why clearly.
Here is the selection of readings:
Conversational Style: Analyzing Talk Among Friends (2005)
Read Chapters Two, Three, and Four
Family Talk: Discourse and Identity in Four American Families (2007)
Read Chapter 1 plus any other chapter, 2-11
Gender and Discourse (1994)
