The greater the threat, the greater the reactance.

Below is an example of exactly how the Discussion should be set and formatted. Two questions have to be asked will upload the content for this week that the discussion should pull from.
Post 2 questions Remember that one of the marking criteria is that students need to “post well before the deadline so that others have sufficient time to respond.”
Receiver and channel factors are important when persuading the audience. The message can succeed or fail to persuade an audience due to their receiver characteristics. For example, an commercial about how abortion laws are violating women’s rights and unconstitutional. The target audience is ideally women, however there are women who approves the legal policy to ban abortion. This law is threating women’s freedom of choice, eliciting reactance – when our freedom to do something we value is threated, motivating to restore our freedom. Commercials or advertisements can use controlling languages especially elections to increase the severity of the threat. These words can include “must”, “ought”, and “should.” (pg. 126-127, chapter 6). The greater the threat, the greater the reactance.
Theories suggest the receiver can resist counter-arguments in persuasive messages (inoculation theory). A politician can speak on the anti-abortion laws and point out the counter-arguments from the competitor. This is called supportive message. The audience based on their beliefs and values side with the anti-abortion laws; increasing the resistance of persuasion for the competitor’s arguments for pro-choice laws.
1) What other receiver factors help speakers persuade the audience?
2) Can males be influence to side with abortion laws even if this subject is not affecting them personally?
Answer these two questions posted as well.

Apply it to real day relevance.

Concept: Cross-Cultural Communications
The point of the analysis papers is twofold-
1. Show me that you can take a class concept(Cross-Cultural Communication) and
apply it to real day relevance.
2. Show me that you can evaluate and determine a credible source
of information.
For this class we will follow is called the D.I.E. Framework. Describe, Interpret, and Evaluate. You must describe and define the concept(Cross-Cultural Communication) that you have chosen to use. What’s your concept?(Cross-Cultural Communication) Put it into your own words. What is the object of this concept? In what kinds of situation might we find this concept? You must then interpret your concept with a real world example. Find an example that really highlights the concept you’ve chosen. What are possible
explanations for this example? Bring the concept to life by highlighting the example you’ve found. How do the two things relate to each other? Finally, you must evaluate your concept and
example. Bring in the experts. What do they say about the example you’re using? Where’s the controversy? What’s the conflict or dilemma?

Share your thoughts, feelings, experiences or views that are relevant to what you have chosen to discuss.

*powerpoint slides with pictures
*3-5min, presented in front of class
*talk about famous examples of activism and activists
*talk about people that underrepresented socially
*use facts and statistics
Thought-o-logues: You may either do a “thought-o-logue” or some other creative project where you define, apply, and share course concepts and do something to change a related problem that you identify. Thought-o-logues are 3-5 minute presentations that you give on material that we have covered in class. There are a few requirements, and you also have the chance to share your thoughts, feelings, experiences, or views on the material. I ask that you select and define 3 keywords from the reading or class lecture and discussions—keywords are key concepts that we have defined in class or that authors that we have read have defined in readings or in video material assigned for this class. This is the “define” part of the assignment. Please don’t define the same keywords as another presenter. Apply the keywords in any way you choose—in an example you find in media, in old or new media, in a social media posting, news article, law, cultural practice, anything you chose from media, culture, or the political economy of communications. Share your thoughts, feelings, experiences or views that are relevant to what you have chosen to discuss. Your thought-o-logue should tell us what you define, apply, and share.
OR you can deliver your though-o-logue in a different mode as a creative work along as you define, apply, and share course concepts and do something as outlined above.
Sign ups for one date to present your thought-ologue or creative project. Sign up in class.
Evaluation is based on completeness, thoughtfulness, you integrate your own experiences/thoughts/feelings on what you discuss or present, bonus points for creativity.

The annotation will follow the citation in the next line.

You will complete the following assignment to prepare for your week seven research paper. Using the topic you submitted for approval in week two, you will be turning in an outline and an annotated bibliography (see attached templates including both) of SEVEN scholarly sources (your textbook should be used as a source but is not to be included in this initial bibliography).

Guidelines for annotated bibliography:
The annotated bibliography consists of two elements:
Citation in current APA style format
Annotation
The annotation will follow the citation in the next line. There is not extra space—double spacing is used throughout.
An annotation is different from an abstract. It should have several sentences summarizing the main points or ideas found in the item. It should then include your statement evaluating the item’s quality and relating it to your research topic.
Please consider the following:
Please use APA format. See the attached links for an example of an APA paper and an annotated bibliography.
Choosing articles you can potentially use as resources in future assignments would help you get “ahead.”

This section will be further refined in week 5.

You will need to use the Word document as the week one assignment. The week 2 assignment is correlated to the week one as well as week 3.
Assignment Content
The board reviewed your email and agreed with your assessment. Now it is time to start fixing the situation so that more clients can be served by the Long Lake Community Center job placement service. After seeing a 15% decline in clients served over the previous six months, the board is looking for a turnaround. Specifically, the board wants to see a 25% increase in the number of clients served. The board has tasked you with writing the strategic communication plan to achieve this goal. The board wants you to begin publishing the first few sections of a new strategic communication plan. Remember, the material you prepare this week will support your final strategic communication plan due in Week 5. You will have an opportunity to make adjustments based upon feedback from your instructor each week.
Facilitator’s Note
You are NOT being asked to improve use of other services. Should you think,”If I increase use of the food bank, it will also increase use of Job Placement Services,” you must provide research data proving a cause-effect relationship. I have not been able to find any such data.
Directions
Please do not submit a pdf. Submit a Microsoft Word publish of a 350- to 450-word strategic communication plan with the following:
publish a new vision statement that encompasses the 25% increase for Jobs Placement Service.
Explain the difference from last year’s vision statement and how it is an improvement.
How will you operationalize this vision statement? Provide two suggestions.
How will implement the vision so that progress can be measured?
This section will be further refined in Week 5.
Who are the LLCC’s internal and external partners? How will these partners support the new vision statement?
Of the four theories presented by Shires, which will guide your strategic communication plan?
How does this theory support your future development of the objectives, strategies, tactics, and messaging?
Discuss how the theory aligns to your vision statement.
Include at least 2 credible references that show how this theory has been applied or observed in action. Sources should be fluently integrated into the discussion of the theory, above. The research should be recent enough to reflect modern communication and applicable to our culture. For example, persuasion may work differently in high-context. Be selective and wise in your choices.
