Question Description

Need help with my Communications question - I’m studying for my class.

Application Paper #1

The reaction paper is your opportunity to (1) analyze what you have learned from this class, (2) integrate concepts from chapters 2 through 4 to elaborate on your explanation of a film or television show’s story, and (3) illustrate your growing communication competency through your analysis and your written communication.

You need to incorporate at least three terms from chapters 2, 3, or 4. Cite any quotes or paraphrases used from the text or media. Do not cite from the glossary. I expect definitions to come from the body of the chapters. Do not plagiarize!


The paper needs to be more than 1 page and less than 2 pages, double-spaced in 12 pt. Times New Roman font with 1” margins all around. THE ENTIRE PAPER NEEDS THIS FORMATTING. PAGE NUMBERS, HEADING, ETC. Proper grammar and language rules must be followed for you to receive a desirable grade. PROOFREAD EVERYTHING. 

You will be using MLA or APA formatting techniques including a reference page, which cites your textbook and the film properly. Do not include an abstract, headings, or subheadings (i.e. introduction, body, conclusion).

DO NOT USE A CITATION GENERATOR (bibme, citationmachine, etc.). DO NOT DO THIS. You need to learn to research independently. All you need to know is on the Purdue website. Do not send me your reference page ahead of time expecting me to fix it for you.  

Here is the website you should use:

If you hand me your paper, and I see issues with font, length, or margins at first glance, I will hand the paper back to you to edit and turn in late, meaning a 15% deduction to your grade.

This paper is worth thirty (30) points.


·  Pick a movie or a television show (limit it to one specific episode).

·  Apply at least three terms to what you see in that film or TV show. Have some consistency.  Do not jump around concepts to fill up space. Make sure the paper has a general theme and flow.


·  Introduction: This should preface what you will be discussing. This should include both the text you’re evaluating and the concept. Keep it brief, but it should be at least three sentences. There should be a clear thesis statement at the end of the paragraph.

·  Body: This should illustrate your understanding of the concepts in the text as they relate to the film or TV show.

o  If you think it will help, you can include a very brief synopsis before jumping into your application (2-3 sentences).

o  Do not simply gloss over the terms. I expect multiple sentences revolving around each term.

·  Conclusion: This should briefly reiterate your thesis. It should also include a statement of the ways that knowing how to apply these concepts relates to reality.

Off limits terms: perception, language, grammar, all five of the functional communication competencies, nonverbal communication, immediacy, deception, nonverbal codes, pitch, tone, volume.
