Intercultural Communication Paper
You will write a total of two papers responding to the week’s reading(s) throughout the course of the semester. These papers should reflect familiarity with the reading materials but should go beyond merely summarizing them, they are an opportunity for you to critically reflect on the readings, analyze the ideas, and connect these to real events. You may choose the topics/weeks that are most relevant to your interests and experiences. These papers are due on the Thursday (one week after) following the assigned reading materials.
Your content should include:
1. A brief summary of the content.
2. Your critical analysis of the material. For example, you can connect the content to a real event, a personal experience, or a situation you have observed. I want to see that you are able to link and apply the material.
3. What struck you most about the reading? Are there any concepts/ideas that stood out to you? Are there any ideas that were new to you? Do you agree or disagree with any of the content? Any of these questions that you choose to respond to (you can choose one or several) should also answer the “why” question.
