Question description

Specifics of the Paper

In this paper, you will: (1) describe an aspect of interpersonal communication that you recognize as being an area of needed improvement for yourself, (2) use theories and concepts from our textbook and/or class lectures to analyze why you might encounter some of the communication problems that you experience, (3) again, using theories and concepts from reading and/or online lectures, describe an action plan for improving communication competence in that area that you’ve discussed.

Selecting a Topic Area

One way to proceed with this paper is to think of situations where you find it difficult to engage in communication or to achieve your communication goals. For example, maybe you find it difficult not to compete during interpersonal conflict, maybe you’re just not sure how to disclose feelings in a relationship that is important to you, or maybe you don’t know how to effectively listen to a child or parent.

Another suggestion is to make notes of topics discussed in your text with which you can personally identify. For example, after reading the text you may realize that you use language in unconventional ways, possibly in detrimental ways. Or, after reading about nonverbal communication, you realize that you misinterpret a friend’s facial expressions a great deal.

Format of the paper

  • Each paper should be 3 – 5 pages long. Headings, title pages, and works cited pages do NOT count toward your page count.
  • Paper should include an introduction, body, and conclusion.
  • Each paper should include documentation of your source(s) – at a minimum, you should cite our textbook.
  • The paper should be double-spaced the paper with 12 point Time New Roman font.
