You will use a narrative style in your paper—not a table—but this table may help you understand appropriate steps in describing each interpersonal communication principle.
Interpersonal Communication Principle
A Beautiful Mind, directed by Ron Howard. Definition in my own words. Example from the film. Strategy to improve communication effectiveness. Evidence of student's competence.
Perception Perception is the way a person sees the world. What the person pays attention to, how meaning is attached, and what the person remembers affect his or her communication. Because John Nash has schizophrenia, he interprets the world quite differently than the people around him. His perceptions cause him to be isolated from other people. Nash could have checked his perceptions. By asking people about their views, Nash might have been able to communicate more effectively. In class, Dr. Aitken gave the statistic that in any given year, 1 in 5 people have a mental disorder, and 1 in 10 people have a disorder that causes some functional problem. Even though I perceive that my view of the world is grounded in reality, culture and personal perspective can affect my perceptions and communication. Since beginning this course, I have begun to ask more questions of the people around me as I check my view of the world.
