Models of Interpersonal Communication

Models of Interpersonal Communication
The discussion assignment provides a forum for discussing relevant topics for this week based on the course competencies covered.
To support your work, use your course and text readings and also use the South University Online Library. As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.
Start reviewing and responding to the postings of your classmates as early in the week as possible. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ initial postings. Participate in the discussion by asking a question, providing a statement of clarification, providing a point of view with a rationale, challenging an aspect of the discussion, or indicating a relationship between two or more lines of reasoning in the discussion. Cite sources in your responses to other classmates.
Models of Interpersonal Communication
In this assignment, you will apply the models of communication to a communication you have taken part in or have observed.
In this week’s reading, you will read about the following models of communication:
Using the South University Online Library, the Internet, and your text readings, research further on the aforementioned models of communication. Think about a recent conversation you have had or have observed and apply these models to that conversation.
On the basis of your research, understanding, and analysis of your conversation, respond to the following:
Briefly describe the conversation you have had or observed. If you are not comfortable discussing a conversation of your own, feel free to use a conversation from a television program or a movie you have recently viewed. What subject was being discussed? What was said? Provide a brief summary of the conversation.
Choose one of the three models of communication that most accurately fits the conversation. What did you learn about why the conversation was effective or ineffective by applying this communication model? Did the concepts of noise and feedback influence the conversation? How?
Now that you have used the models of communication to analyze the conversation, discuss how the conversation or how a future conversation could be more effective using the prescriptive suggestions and principles of competent communication.
