In this assignment you are to engage one movie from the attached list, on a critical level. This means that I am asking you to apply the multiple communication concepts you have discovered through this course against the movie you choose. In other words, what you are doing is putting together theory (course concepts) and practice (the life world of the movie).
Specifically, you are to choose 7 of the 12 concepts below in order to: a) explain them (cite the text and/or lecture) and then b) show how they work in the movie. Your paper should be a minimum of 8 full pages in length and should not exceed 12 pages in total. The structure of the paper must follow this format:
Pick a movie that where you can talk about all 7-12 concepts (you should only use 1 movie to talk about all of the concepts)
Follow APA style (7th ed) in terms of formatting – see the example paper – you will need a title page, you will NOT need an abstract page, you will need to use headings (not for the introduction) to separate concepts, double-spaced, 1-inch margins
Introduction: Introduce and provide a brief summary of the plot of the movie and provide a preview of the paper (In this paper I will examine…”)
Choose 7 of the concepts listed below and show how they are present in the movie. When doing this, you should a. define the concept (citing your textbook or lecture), talk about what happened in the movie to demonstrate the concept. You should follow this pattern for each of the concepts.
Regulative and constitutive rules guiding communication
Nonverbal behaviors (kinesics, haptics, physical appearance, artifacts, proxemics, environment, chonemics, and silence – note that each of these can be a separate concept)
Ineffective listening, pseudo listening, monopolizing, amusing, selective, defensive, literal listening – again, each of these can be their own concept
Cultural adaptation, resistance, tolerance, understanding, respect, participation
Significant and generalized others, reflected appraisals, self-fulfilling prophesy
Five phase model of dyadic breakdown
Any concept we covered in class or that is in the book – you have freedom here. This list is not exhaustive.
For each concept, you should use a separate heading. For example, if you are going to talk about conflict, self disclosure, and social support, you should have a heading for conflict and then talk about conflict in that section, then having a heading for self-disclosure and talk about social disclosure, and then a heading for social support and talk about social support, etc.
You should thoroughly explain each concept – you need to pretend like I don’t
Conclusion – in the conclusion, wrap up the paper (your conclusion should have its own heading and should wrap up what you talked about; it should not be combined with content from the body of the paper)
Paper style – make sure you use correct grammar and syntax for your paper. Remember sloppy writing indicates sloppy thinking!
