miscommunication problems

timer Asked: Feb 5th, 2015

Question description

Reading and writing are, in many ways, two sides of the same coin. Joined, they are an attempt at communication between two parties. To communicate successfully, a writer should be able to clearly present a message that the reader is able to understand. It sounds like a simple process, but there are many ways that miscommunications can occur.

For this discussion assignment, complete the following:

  • Recall and describe an incident when you and another person experienced a miscommunication.
  • In your description, include information about what caused the miscommunication and how it was eventually resolved.
  • Discuss ways the communication attempt would have been different if the communications had occurred in a written form, like e-mail, text, or letters. If your incident originally occurred in a written format, discuss how it might have been different if the communication had occurred in a verbal format, either through in-person communication or on the telephone.

Write your initial response in 8 to 10 sentences.

By Thursday, February 5, 2015, post your response to the appropriate Discussion Area. Through Wednesday, February 11, 2015, review and comment on at least two peers’ responses.
