Briefly describe a movie (or movie scene) or television show episode of your choice in the introduction to the paper that illustrates at least THREE concepts from Ch. 2 (Culture & Gender), e.g., “individualistic culture,” collectivistic culture,” “monochronic,” “polychronic,” “uncertainty avoidance,” “gender roles,” expressive talk,” “instrumental talk,” affectionate communication,” and so forth.
In the introduction to your paper, describe the movie (or movie scene) or television show episode of your choice and identify the three concepts from Ch. 2 you’ll use.
Then, for each of the three body paragraphs, define the concept you have selected in your own words (paraphrase – do NOT quote) but then also cite the book in-text like this (Floyd, 2021), elaborate on the content’s connection to the course concept(s) you selected, and discuss how the communicators could have improved their communication during the situation.
End with a conclusion that summarizes and wraps up the paper.
Assignments should be typed in Microsoft Word, 12 pt Times New Roman font, single-spaced, 1″ margins and at least 1 full page in length, use proper in-text citations and a reference page, and be edited for spelling, grammar, punctuation, etc.
You are REQUIRED to use this template for help with formatting: Interpersonal Analysis Template.docx
In your paper, you MUST:
Identify each concept and define the concept in your own words (do not use direct quotes from the text). YOU MUST PROVIDE TEXTUAL CITATIONS FROM YOUR TEXTBOOK TO AVOID PLAGIARISM. Do so exactly like this: (Floyd, 2021). Then provide a Reference page at the end, exactly like this: Floyd, K. (2021). Interpersonal communication. (4th ed.). McGraw-Hill.
Thoroughly explain the connection between your example to each course concept/theory. Please bold/underline/highlight/CAPITALIZE or otherwise draw attention to the concepts from the text you are using in-text.
Your paper should have a clear introduction, three body points (one for each concept), and conclusion.
Provide appropriate in-text citations as well as an APA reference sheet at the end. You do NOT need a cover page at the beginning.
Assignments should be typed, single-spaced, and 1 full page in length, not counting your name, the title, anything at the top or excess spaces between paragraphs.
Edit your paper carefully for grammar, word choice, punctuation, spelling, etc.
Organize your thoughts carefully. For each new idea, you should have a new paragraph.
Provide clear transitions between paragraphs.
