The second is the final paper 9 page paper that is due 4/7/2016. Same APA format. I have attached new items that you dont have . Please let me know if you have any questions.
Below is more instruction from the teacher she just posted. let me know if you need anything
As the prompt says, you will be writing a hypothetical letter to an engaged couple about how to communicate to build a strong relationship. Again, I repeat that I don’t care if your couple or group of co-workers are hypothetical or not. The point is to show you can apply what you’ve learned to some potentially real-world experience.
You must use the following FIVE learning outcomes:
1. Explain the principles of, and barriers to, effective interpersonal communications.
2. Analyze the role of communication in developing and maintaining one’s self-concept, self-image, and self-esteem.
3. Illustrate the importance of self-disclosure and emotional intelligence in various relationships.
4. Evaluate strategies for using communication techniques to resolve interpersonal conflicts.
5. Analyze the impact of gender and culture on interpersonal communications.
When you go to write your paper, you MUST use the five learning outcomes you’ve identified as headers for different sections. Headers means you will create clear titles that separate each segment of your paper and you spend a significant amount of time with EACH of these learning outcomes. When you go to address each point, be sure to draw on Bevan and Sole, other readings and/or the guidance to help you make your points. Aim for two to three points from Bevan and Sole and/or others for each section. Try use a combination of paraphrasing and/or quoting. And remember, when you use quotes, be careful to explain what the quote means or why it is so significant. This allows you to hammer in the point and it shows that you are processing and actively engaging with the reading. Doing this makes the quote more of your own.
You will be writing 8 to 10 pages, with a clear introduction and conclusion. I know that’s a long letter! But don’t get too carried away with that concept. I would anticipate that you will need to spend about 1 to 2 paragraphs for the introduction, 1 ½ pages for each of your five objectives, and then at least a one-paragraph conclusion. You will still need to use APA style and ensure that you are writing to an academic crowd – your instructor! If you need help with APA style, please email me as soon as possible and I will assist you.
I can’t emphasize enough that you will not do well on the paper if you do not use references (e.g. academic articles) to support you in all of the claims you make. In fact, the paper requires that you use at least FIVE SOURCES, and Bevan and Sole only counts as one. And remember that two of the sources must come from the Ashford Library. Please do not just re-use articles from class to meet this requirement. Go to an Ashford database and do some research! For some advice about researching communication topics specifically, select the “Research Guides” icon on the library’s landing page and then select “Communication.”
