COMM 1004 Week 4 Assignment Description
Creating Characters Who Listen
At this point in the course, you will have noticed that there are many ways to demonstrate interpersonal
communication skills. Similarly, there are also many ways to implement effective listening skills during a
conversation. This Application challenges you to consider the myriad of ways you can exhibit listening
skills. You will demonstrate your knowledge by constructing a conversation between two characters that
will not only show off their listening skills, but will also demonstrate the impact of listening skills in a
relationship.
To prepare for this Application: Read Chapters 8, 13, and 15 in Composing Relationships: Communication in Everyday Life. As
you read each scenario, consider how the characters demonstrate effective listening skills. Pay
attention to how the scenario is written and demonstrates listening skills (or lack of listening
skills). Review Chapter 6 in Understanding Interpersonal Communication: Making Choices in Changing
Times. Make note of the main concepts and terms regarding effective listening. You will want to
use these in your assignment. Review the Effective Listening document in the Learning Resources. Make note of how this
scenario is written (you want to write like this for this assignment). Consider how this story
demonstrates the concepts and terms of effective listening skills. Consider situations you have had in your life where it was difficult to listen. You can use these
times as inspiration for this assignment. The assignment: Write a 2-page dialogue with two characters having a conversation demonstrating effective
listening skills. Your dialogue should follow the format (should look like) of the Betty & Jane
effective listening document located in the Week 4 Resources. Your dialogue must also include
the following: o 3 specific listening terms (bold-faced words from pages 186-204 of the Understanding
Interpersonal Communication textbook) which describe the listening skills being
demonstrated. These terms must be labeled in brackets, as demonstrated in the example
story in the Effective Listening document. Include page citations from your texts for each
term in brackets. o Identify 2 listening skills described in Chapter 6 (pages 205-210, not just bold words,
section titles also) of Understanding Interpersonal Communication. These skills should
also labeled in brackets with page citations. o I will NOT expect you to fully apply terms in this assignment as I have in previous ones.
Simply listing where the term applies and providing the textbook citation is enough. Use this rubric to guide you as you write your dialogue. Expectations and Comments
