Communication Theories and Context Review Worksheet

 

Communication can be understood by examining the context in which communication takes place and by reviewing some of the theories that govern how communication works within each context. As you complete the information below, be sure to use in-text citations for any paraphrased or quoted information and provide a full reference for your course text.

 

Part A – Communication Contexts

 

Directions: In this course we examine communication theories relating to several communication contexts. Refer to the course text to help you understand each of these contexts, then provide a  definition for each communication context.

 

 

 

 

Intrapersonal:
 

 

Interpersonal:
 

 

Group:
 

 

Organizational:
 

 

Public:
 

 

Mass:
 

 

Intercultural:
 

 

 

Part B – Communication Theory

 

Directions: For each of the following questions, provide a one paragraph response of at least 150 words. Ensure your responses reflect critical thinking.

 

 

 

 

What do you think of when you hear the term “Communication Theory”? After reviewing the Week 1 materials, why do you think it is important to evaluate and study Communication Theory?
 

 

 

 

 

 

After reading about the three traditional guidelines that are used to create Communication Theory, do you see communication behavior as being lawlike (Law Approach), like a system (Systems Approach), or rule governed (Rules Approach)? Explain your answer.
 

 

 

 

 

 

We begin our exploration of Communication Theory by covering theories pertaining to “Communication and the Self.” What are the benefits of beginning with these intrapersonal communication theories?
 

 

 

 

 

 

How does an exploration of intrapersonal communication theories allow you to understand the internal process people go through in order to gain clarity and comprehension in communication exchanges?
 

 

 

 
 

 

 

BSCOM 336 Week 2 Communication Theories Paper
 

Write a 750- to 1,050-word paper that applies at least two interpersonal theories and one intrapersonal theory to your personal and/or professional life. For each theory you discuss, provide one example of how you have experienced the theory in your life. Be specific and provide examples, rather than providing generalities.

Consider these questions for each example:

 

 

 

What is the basis/definition of the theory you have experienced?
 

 

How did you experience this theory?
 

 

Was the communication experience effective?
 

 

Could it have been more effective?
 

 

In light of the theoretical elements of this theory, how might you communicate differently in the future?
 

 

Include at least two in-text citations and a full reference for the course text, Introducing Communication Theory.

The information in the appendix must be supported by at least two peer-reviewed sources in addition to your text, Introducing Communication Theory. You must have APA in-text citations and a full reference for those sources.

Also include a sentence or two explaining how you will enact this theory through a script (characters, setting, etc.). For example, “In order to portray the XX theory, our script will show a group of friends discussing a popular news story. One of the friends will…”

Theory Definition
Identify the Theory
Theorist(s)
Context of Theory 

(Intrapersonal, Interpersonal, Organizational, Public, Mass)
Application Example from your Personal or Professional Life
Theory explains why as relationships develop, communication moves from less intimate levels to more intimate, more personal levels.
 
 
 
 
Theory explains how people hold expectations about the nonverbal behaviors of others. Violations of these expectations may trigger a change in the perception of exchange either positively or negatively, depending on the relationship.
 
 
 
 
Theory explains the process that people use to manage the relationship between concealing and revealing private information.
 
 
 
 
Theory explains how people experience a limited effect from media. Individuals are thought to be actively seeking specific types of media to generate specific needs. However, some theorists working within this model study how effects, such as attitudes and perceptions of social reality, can and do happen. 

 
 
 
 
 
Theory explains why parties to communication experience conflicting pulls causing relationships to be in a constant state of flux. The closer individuals become to one another, the more conflict will arise to pull them apart.
 
 
 
 
Theory explains meanings for routine organizational events, thereby reducing the amount of cognitive processing and energy members need to expend throughout the day.
 
 
 
 
Theory explains how different cultures manage conflict and communication. The theory explains that the root of conflict is based on identity management on an individual and cultural level.
 
 
 
 
Theory explains how individuals act toward things on the basis of the meanings they ascribe to those things.  The meaning comes from the social interaction that one has with others and society.
 
 
 
 
Theory explains why people tend to remain silent when they feel that their views are in the minority.
 
 
 
 
Theory explains why certain groups in society are muted, which means they are either silent or not heard.
