Place course concepts you use in bold. Example: “Early on our group developed an unusual norm about taking turns in conversation…” (Note that your goal is still to demonstrate a rich understanding of the course material, though, and not merely to “spam vocabulary.”)
If the only source you use is the textbook, you do not need to submit a works cited list.
Watch and analyze this video of three conversations, using concepts covered in the reading and modules for this lesson. You might want to watch the video more than once to note all the verbal and nonverbal behaviors:
Part 1: Analyze the first conversation by exploring how four specific nonverbal behaviors affected the climate, keeping in mind that the climate can change over time.
Part 2: Analyze the second conversation in terms of social presence and two other concepts of your choosing, explaining how these influenced the attitudes of the two participants.
Part 3: Analyze the third conversation by using three concepts from the readings on listening, plus at least one other concept of your choosing.
Overall, you are being evaluated on your ability to clearly demonstrate your understanding of the course material covered in both the reading and this lesson, and to apply it to a specific communication event. Specific criteria are as follows:
Accurate use of course concepts, including selecting the most appropriate term for the situation you describe: 10 points
Explanation depth, demonstrating an awareness of the complexity of verbal and nonverbal communication behaviors: 15 points
Writing quality is consistent with Standard American English, and attends to clarity, mechanics, and proofreading: 5 points
