Question description

This does not have to be very detailed, part 1 and 2  only has to be 200-300 words each Thanks for all the great help
Part 1

Improving Verbal Communication and Computer-Mediated Communication
 
In Chapter 4 of your text, titled Verbal and Nonverbal Communication: Making Every Word and Gesture Matter, Bevan & Sole (2014) discuss the power of language and how verbal communication can affect interpersonal relationships. The authors also mention ways you can improve your verbal communication.

Prepare: As you prepare to write this discussion post, take a few moments to do the following:

  • Read the writing prompt below in its entirety. Notice that there are three tasks:
    1. Discuss the importance of verbal skills in communication.
    2. Identify at least two strategies for improving your verbal communication.
    3. Explain how you can use these skills to improve your computer-mediated communication (CMC).
  • Review Chapter 4 in your text.
  • Review the grading rubric and remember that 25% of your grade is based on your application of course material (Content/Subject Knowledge) and 25% is based on your ability to demonstrate you are thinking critically and presenting original ideas.


Reflect: Take time to reflect on the role of language in communication. Due to our reliance on computer-meditated communication, think about the emerging need to pay close attention to how we use written language.

Write: Based on the information in Chapter 4:

  • Discuss the importance of verbal skills in communication.
  • Identify at least two specific strategies from the text for improving your verbal communication generally.  
  • Consider the special circumstances of computer-mediated communication (CMC). Based on what you’ve learned from Chapter 4, how do you think improved verbal communication can enhance your CMC?


Thoroughly address all three elements of this prompt by writing at least two to three sentences on each element. Use the course readings at least once to help you make your points. Consider copying and pasting these tasks into a word file and addressing each of them separately.


Part 2

Nonverbal Miscommunication
 
Nonverbal communication is one of the most powerful ways that we communicate in our interpersonal relationships. Sometimes, however, we may find ourselves unintentionally communicating the wrong message. In this discussion, you will need to identify and focus on one of the functions of nonverbal communication.

Prepare: As you prepare to write this discussion post, take a few moments to do the following:

  • Read the writing prompt below in its entirety. Notice that there are two tasks:
    1. Describe an instance of miscommunication based on nonverbal communication
    2. Connect this experience to one or more functions of nonverbal communication outlined in the text.
  • Review Chapter 4 in your text.
  • Review the grading rubric and remember that 25% of your grade is based on your application of course material (Content/Subject Knowledge) and 25% is based on your ability to demonstrate you are thinking critically and presenting original ideas.

Reflect: Take time to reflect on the role of nonverbal messages in communication and the importance of understanding nonverbal communication. Think about some examples of nonverbal communication in your own life. Think about an experience you’ve had that involved a misunderstanding the resulted from unintended nonverbal communication.

Write: Based on the information in Chapter 4:
  • Describe an instance of miscommunication based on nonverbal communication by providing an example of a time when you nonverbally communicated something other than what you meant. Alternatively, use an example of when someone else communicated something to you nonverbally that was not what they meant.
  • What happened in this situation?  
  • Based on what you’ve learned in Chapter 4 this week, which function(s) of nonverbal communication does your example illustrate?

Thoroughly address all three elements of this prompt by writing at least two to three sentences on each element. Use the course readings at least once to help you make your points. Consider copying and pasting these tasks into a word file and addressing each of them separately. Your answers should begin with some points about the importance of understanding nonverbal communication generally and then provide examples.
