  10. COM 200 Week 3 DQ 1 Everyone Has a Culture (Ash) • Everyone Has a Culture • Some students think that they do not have much of a cultural background because they were not born outside of the United States or because they do not speak another language. The truth is that everyone has a culture! Your culture can be related to your race, ethnicity, gender, age, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, ability, etc. Take some time to write about your own culture and share with us what makes you who you are. Try to not focus on just one aspect of yourself, but try to utilize as many cultural elements as possible. Also, address why culture is important in communication. How does your culture affect your communication with others? • Your initial response should be 150-200 words in length Everyone Has a Culture

  11. COM 200 Week 3 DQ 2 Willingness to Listen (Ash) • Willingness to Listen • Research from communication expert, James McCorskey, has been very influential in research within the interpersonal communication field. He is especially well-known for his communication research scales. Go to the Willingness to Listen website and complete the “Willingness to Listen Measure.” Follow the directions on the website to score your results. Based on your results, do you have a high, moderate, or low willingness to listen to others? How do you think your willingness to listen score could impact your interpersonal relationships? Do you think that this measure was accurate for you? What about the measure do you think was or was not accurate?

COM 200 Week 4 DQ 1 Empathy (Ash) • Empathy • In this week’s readings the author discusses emotional intelligence, a concept which measures people’s ability to understand emotions and express them appropriately. As you have learned, this ability is crucial to communicating effectively in interpersonal relationships. One of the major components of emotional intelligence is the ability to empathize with others. First, describe in your own words what it means to have empathy. Second, share an example of a time when you found it difficult to empathize with someone. How did you handle the situation? What could you have done differently to empathize with them? • Your initial response should be 150-200 words in length

It might be just one thing that we like about another person or it could be several things. What do you look for in other people when you first meet them? This could be a potential romantic partner or even a platonic friend. Either way, we each look for or are attracted to certain things when we meet people. Share an example of a time when you developed a friendship/relationship with someone whom you did not get along with at first. What changed for you? • Your initial response should be 150-200 words in length

  14. COM 200 Week 5 DQ 1 Unprofessional Work Environments (Ash) • Unprofessional Work Environments • One of the most frustrating situations in the professional world is to work with someone who is not professional in their job. This often makes it a very disheartening work environment because of the low level of professionalism. • Have you ever found yourself in a situation where the work environment was not professional? How did you handle the situation? Share an example. If your work experience is limited, consider a time when you were working with others in a different context, such as school or a club. Also, address how you can combat this in the future with effective communication skills.

  15. COM 200 Week 5 DQ 2 The Influence of Mediated Communication (Ash) • The Influence of Mediated Communication • Social media (e.g., email, blogs, Facebook, Skype, Twitter) has played a major role in changing the way that we all engage in interpersonal communication.
