COM 310 Week 1 DQ 1
  • Please study the syllabus to familiarize yourself
    with the objectives we will be covering in this
    course. What are yourexpectations of this class?
    Do you have any preconceived notions when you
    hear the term "Communication Theory"?

4
COM 310 Week 1 DQ 2
  • Your text discusses the concept of individual
    "fields of experience". How does a person's field
    of experience influence a communication event?
    Can you think of a communication experience or
    relationship you have had that was significantly
    influenced by differing fields of experience?
    (Remember, this doesn't necessarily refer to a
    "field of experience" as in work experience!)

5
COM 310 Week 1 DQ 3
  • I realize this is the last day of Week 1, but I
    wanted to post this anyway, just to highlight
    another theory from the Week 1 reading. It is
    perfectly fine for this discussion to carry into
    the first few days of Week 2.)Chapter 8 of your
    text discusses the Expectancy Violations Theory.
    One major premise of this theory is that people
    have expectations about the behaviors (both
    verbal and nonverbal) of others. Can you provide
    an example from your own life that relates to the
    Expectancy Violations Theory? Does understanding
    this theory help you make sense of that
    communication situation?

COM 310 Week 1 Individual Assignment
Communication Introduction Worksheet
  • Communication Introduction Worksheet
    (Individual).
  • Complete the University of Phoenix Material
    Communication Introduction Worksheet located in
    Week One of the COM310 ecampus page. Instructions
    and details of the assignment are included.

7
COM 310 Week 2 DQ 1
  • Chapter 9 of your text discusses the Uncertainty
    Reduction Theory which is the only communication
    theory devoted to initial interactions. There are
    seven axioms of URT. Please choose one axiom and
    discuss how you have experienced this axiom of
    URT in a past communication exchange. Do you
    think your knowledge of the URT will influence
    your future initial interactions?

8
COM 310 Week 2 DQ 2
  • Chapter 10 of your text discusses the Social
    Penetration Theory which involves
    self-disclosure. What are the consequences of
    poorly planned or inappropriate self-disclosure?
    Can you think of examples from your own life
    where self-disclosure caused a problem?
    Conversely, what are the benefits of
    self-disclosure?

9
COM 310 Week 2 DQ 3
  • Chapter 13 of your text discusses the
    Communication Privacy Management Theory, which is
    a practical theory designed to explain the
    everyday issue of whether or not to tell someone
    something. Many of our interactions (personal,
    school, work) in today's world occur in an online
    environment. How does the Communication Privacy
    Management Theory apply to online relationships?
    Is there more or less disclosure in online
    relationships?

10
COM 310 Week 2 DQ 4
  • Chapter 11 of your text discusses the Social
    Exchange Theory which is based on the notion that
    people review and weigh their relationships in
    terms of costs and rewards. Does applying this
    theory to your current or past relationships help
    you understand those relationships? (These can be
    personal relationships or work-related
    relationships.) Explain your answer.

COM 310 Week 3 DQ 1
  • Chapter 14 of your text discusses the concept of
    Groupthink. Discuss the advantages and
    disadvantages associated with having a high level
    of cohesiveness among members of a group. Have
    you ever been in a group where Groupthink was an
    issue? If so, what could have been done to avoid
    Groupthink? If not, what has been done that has
    allowed you to avoid Groupthink in a group
    situation?

13
COM 310 Week 3 DQ 2
  • Chapter 15 of your text discusses the Adaptive
    Structuration Theory. This theory has three main
    components Agency and reflexivity, duality of
    structure, and social integration. Please choose
    one of these elements of the Adaptive
    Structuration Theory and discuss your experiences
    with that element. Do you think the Adaptive
    Structuration Theory is useful in providing an
    understanding of how structures that are created
    in groups influence communication and decisions?

14
COM 310 Week 3 DQ 3
  • Chapter 17 discusses the Organizational
    Information Theory and the associated concept of
    "equivocality". Recall an organization in which
    you were or are a member (workplace, sports team,
    volunteer organization, community group, etc.).
    Can you remember an incident when you or the
    organization  received ambiguous information? If
    so, what "rules" did you or the organization use
    in dealing with this equivocality?

15
COM 310 Week 3 DQ 4
  • Chapter 16 of your text discusses the
    Organizational Culture Theory. In the
    introduction to the chapter there is a story
    about Fran Callahan and her job with Jewelry
    Plus. How do you think employees like Fran
    Callahan can successfully ease into a new
    organizational culture? Based on the information
    you read about the Organizational Culture Theory,
    what advice would you give Fran as she begins her
    "new" job with Jewelry Plus? Have you ever been
    in a position like the one Fran finds herself in
    now? (And I don't mean as a jewelry salesperson!)

18
COM 310 Week 4 DQ 1
  • Chapter 18 of your text discussesAristotle and
    his Rhetoric. Aristotle spent a great deal of
    time considering the content of a public speech
    but also indicates that it is crucial for a
    speaker to consider delivery as well. In your
    opinion of public speaking, which element is more
    important- content or delivery? Explain your
    response by including an example from a
    presentation you have witnessed or delivered.
    Also, try to incorporate some of Aristotle's way
    of thinking about this issue by quoting and
    referencing your text.

19
COM 310 Week 4 DQ 2
  • Chapter 22 of your text discusses George Gerbner
    and the concept of Cultivation Analysis. For this
    discussion question please discuss reality TV
    (such as Survivor, Jersey Shore, Real World) and
    the extent to which Cultivation theorists would
    analyze these shows. What features of reality
    television are opportunistic to study? In your
    opinion, what would Gerbner say about this
    television programming? (Try to reference your
    text here to strengthen your opinion.)

20
COM 310 Week 4 DQ 3
  • Chapter 24 of your text discusses the Spiral of
    Silence Theory (SST) which rests on public
    opinion. One of the assertions of the SST is that
    people "seek out the media to confirm or
    disconfirm their observations and then interpret
    their own observations through the media"
    (p.414). Considering that the Internet has become
    a powerful media outlet, what kind of influence
    do you think the Internet has on public opinion?

21
COM 310 Week 4 DQ 4
  • Chapter 23 of your text discusses the Uses and
    Gratifications Theory. What feature of Uses and
    Gratifications Theory is most appealing or most
    applicable to you? Why? Please incorporate

  • First, start off by describing each theorys
    primary tenets.

COM 310 Week 5 DQ 1
  • Chapter 27 of your text discusses the Standpoint
    Theory, which includes the concept that there are
    multiple truths to any given situation and
    therefore communication is based on subjectivity.
    If all truths are understood as coming from some
    subjective standpoint, how is it possible for
    people to communicate? How do we reach agreement
    among people with different viewpoints

25
COM 310 Week 5 DQ 2
  • Chapter 29 of your text introduces the
    Communication Accommodation Theory which defines
    accommodation as the ability to (typically
    unconsciously) "adjust, modify, or regulate one's
    behavior in response to another" (p.495). Why is
    it useful to engage in communication
    accommodation when interacting with other groups?
    What are the potential disadvantages of employing
    communication accommodation? How does
    communication accommodation influence your
    perception of others?
