TV Script on Intercultural Communication

timer Asked: Jun 20th, 2013

Question description

For this Assignment, you will be writing a proposal for a television script that incorporates characters from diverse cultures and subcultures who are mostly effective intercultural communicators although one of them needs to be an ineffective intercultural communicator.

Your characters might include a Caucasian country girl from Iowa who is a star athlete and graphic designer; an Asian city boy from Los Angeles who is a rapper and also works the computer help desk; or an African-American marketing specialist from Chicago. Your characters will interact in a professional workplace setting. Once the script is written, you will write a 400 word explanation for each character that explains why each character acts the way he or she does. Your script should take account of the legitimate behaviors within cultures and not be satisfied with only the stereotypes associated with them.

To help you create your characters, check out “Creating Characters for a Multicultural Scene” in Doc Sharing. You do not need to take every suggestion the document offers, but the information can help you start thinking about who your characters might be. Once you have created the characters, you will imaginatively put them in the scene and let them interact.

Follow these “Assignment specifics” to meet all the requirements:

  • You do need to cite and reference appropriately in the character explanation section.
  • Include a reference page.
  • Create three or four characters of different cultural backgrounds.
  • One character must be ineffective in intercultural communication.
  • The characters must interact in a professional workplace setting.
  • Provide a script that includes at least two group conversations with all the characters. Characters may interact one-on-one as well, but the two group scenes are required.
  • Provide a script that is at least three pages in length and that includes sample dialogue and interaction. Put each character’s dialogue on a separate line preceded by the character’s name. Include actions in parentheses.
  • For each character, include a minimum 400 word explanation about the character’s culture and actions. Why does the character act or react this way, from a cultural point of view? Include citations and references in these summaries to meet the source requirements.
  • Use a minimum of five sources about the cultures represented in the script. These could include the course textbook, readings from the course, resources from the Kaplan library, and print or electronic publications.

Arrange the assignment paper in the following order:

  • Introduction of characters and setting
  • Scripts
  • Character explanations
  • Reference page
