Homework and Network: Applications for Communication Theory.
Proctor, Russell F., II
An assignment that has proven successful in teaching "Communication Theories" (a senior-level capstone course at Northern Kentucky University) is "The Application Folder." The goal of the assignment is for students to apply concepts from the course in their everyday life. Students monitor and analyze what they watch, read, and hear, looking for opportunities to use course concepts to interpret the world. For each entry in the folder, students provide a copy or account of the item/event and an analysis of the item in terms of text and/or lecture concepts. Students are expected to pursue the project all term long. Grading is based on quantity, quality, and presentation. (Three examples designed by the instructor and offered to students with the assignment, and five sample student entries related to the issue of rhetorical sensitivity and based on newspaper cartoons are attached.)
