For this final assignment, you will demonstrate the knowledge you have gained in this class by reporting on the findings of the four exercises you have done throughout this class and then connecting those experiences to key themes from class. This final paper will be 5 to 6.5 pages (1200 to 1600 words) long and include citations to your textbook, at least one-course reading, and two-course videos.
To begin, you need to complete your Week 5 Exercise (see instructions below). Be sure to use and cite Bevan in your response, for any choice you make. Once you have completed the Week 5 Exercise, read the instructions below to learn how to complete the entire notebook.
Week 5 Exercise Instructions (choose one option):
Option 1: Social support
Think of a time when someone provided you, or you provided someone, with social support.
What type(s) of social support outlined in Bevan did you or they use?
What type of verbal and nonverbal cues were used to provide this support?
Was it appropriate for the situation and why?
Instructions for completing the Communication Notebook:
Describe your findings for the four exercises.
For each exercise, you will then complete step 2 for each by applying what you have learned during this class on the basic principles of effective communication, ideas of the self, or culture to your exercise results.
For each exercise, you must cite at least two resources to support you and one can be a video.
For the final document, you must use and cite two-course readings (and one must be Bevan) and two-course videos.
Note that you will be required to use and cite Bevan at least once for each exercise, but you should use them much more.
