2-parts-discussion-questions

Part 1

Consist of (in 250-350 words) about the Chapter “Improving Communication Climates” in SUCCESSFUL SOCIAL RELATIONS COURSE

Choose and write only 1 of the following three discussions of (in 250-350 words).

So you only have to do 1 of the following 3 steps

(1) Communication Climates: Message Types

Without using the same specific examples from the slides or textbook, please discuss (in 250-350 words) three different situations – each one must apply to a different message type (Disconfirming, Confirming and Disagreeing). This must be specific to just one specific kind of message within that type (e.g., Disconfirming: Impervious Response). Be sure to explain each Message Type you’ve chosen and relate it to each situation you are describing. One different Message Type for each of the three different situations. Feel free to make up fictional examples if that is easier.

Structure your answer in this way:

1a) NAME JUST ONE of the 7 types of DISCONFIRMING messages

1b) Briefly DEFINE it

1c) BRIEFLY explain a situation where you (or someone else) used this specific type of message make a clear connection between the message and situation

2 a/b/c: Repeat for JUST ONE of the 4 types of DISAGREEING messages

3 a/b/d: Repeat for JUST ONE of the 3 types of CONFIRMING messages

or (2) Preventing Negative Communications Dynamics: Face & Defensiveness

Without using the same specific examples from the slides or textbook, please discuss (in 250-350 words) three situations where you used or saw the use of three different Tools that reduced Defensiveness or saved Face. You could use examples where Gibb’s Categories were used (e.g., Using Descriptive language instead of Evaluation) or where Communications Spirals occurred (e.g., Positive vs Negative, and Escalatory vs De-escalatory).

Be sure to explain each specific concept you’ve chosen (e.g., Gibb’s Category of Descriptive vs Evaluative language) and relate it to each situation you are describing. One different Tool for each of the three different situations. Feel free to make up fictional examples if that is easier.

Structure your answer in this way:

1. a) NAME JUST ONE DYNAMIC of the 6 types of Gibb’s Categories OR Spiral types

b) Briefly DEFINE it

c) BRIEFLY explain a situation where you (or someone else) experienced or demonstrated this specific dynamic; make a clear connection between the dynamic and situation where it was experienced/demonstrated

2 a/b/c: Repeat for A SECOND Dynamic (either Gibb’s or Spiral)

3 a/b/d: Repeat for A THIRD Dynamic (either Gibb’s or Spiral)

or (3) Politeness Theory

Without re-using the same specific examples from the slides, please discuss (in 250-350 words) three situations where you used (or saw someone else use) three different Politeness Strategies (ex. Bald on Record, Positive Politeness, Off-Record Indirectness). For at least one of the situations, discuss a Social Condition (ex. Power, Distance, Rank) related to it. Be sure to explain each Strategy you’ve chosen and relate it to each situation you are describing. One different Strategy for each of the three different situations. Feel free to make up fictional examples if that is easier.

Structure your answer in this way:

1a) NAME JUST ONE of the 4 Politeness Theory (PT) strategies

1b) Briefly DEFINE it

1c) BRIEFLY explain a situation where you (or someone else) used this specific type of PT strategy; make a clear connection between the strategy you used, and the situation (and suggest which of the Social Conditions might have played a role in your choice of strategy).

2 a/b/c: Repeat for a SECOND (different) Politeness Theory (PT) strategy

3 a/b/d: Repeat for THIRD (different) Politeness Theory (PT) strategy

__________________________________________________________________

Your answer to the above will be graded based on your post being:

  • ORIGINAL (i.e., NOT simply repeating situations from our lectures/assignments/textbook);
  • COMPLETE (i.e., answered all aspects required)
  • ACCURATE (i.e., correctly applied/connected the term to a relevant situation)
