I don’t know how to handle this Literature question and need guidance.
PLEASE FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS VERY CAREFULLY AND SEE THE EXAMPLE ROR HELP This is a two part project: (1) Facebook posts with content and accompanying analysis; and (2) Two to three minute class explanation/response. Don’t just state what is in the items you posted on our Facebook page, but relate it to your perceptions, interests, and newly acquired knowledge: “I experienced… I learned that… I was surprised by… I realized…”
o Which theories, constructs, norms, etc. are illustrated here? How?
o Why did you choose these particular ideas to share?
o How have you noticed something about communication (yours or others’) that you didn’t before?
o What have you learned that has made you a more competent communicator?
o Is there anything else that you want to include that I may not have thought of?
I. Facebook Post (on private group page – see email for link to request to join group)
Content: Must analyze at least THREE artifacts separately (in one long post or in three short posts) if curating works, or ONE artifact or set of artifacts if creating original work for the posts. You can focus on different aspects of one course construct/theory or you can analyze three different constructs – make the choice clear in your descriptive analytic paragraph.DO NOT repeat what you’ve done in earlier class work from discussions or essays. * I can post for you if you’re not on FB, but you need to send it to me AHEAD of time!
What to analyze? See some “big ideas” from our course to find the constructs that you most want to address…
