Discussion Post and Reply to Two Peers

Perception involves how you think and feel about the world around you. However, your self-concept deals with how you think and feel about whom and what you are. Your self-concept, much like your perceptions, will shape your communication.

For this discussion, please respond to the following:

  • Share a personal or professional situation in which your self-concept had an impact on communication.
  • How would you approach the situation differently today? Why?

Points and Rubric

This discussion is worth 30 points. Refer to your Discussion Rubric for specific grading criteria. The deadline for your initial post and additional responses is Tuesday night at 11:59 p.m. ET; however, you must participate over multiple days throughout the unit to earn full credit.

Remember that your goal for discussion is three-fold:

  1. To participate actively over multiple days throughout the unit.
  2. To contribute in a way that adds to the discussion and moves it forward in an original fashion.
  3. To use the course content to inform your posts and responses.

Keep in mind that when you post, you should always reference items you cite — be sure to use APA format for this. Also, be sure to refer back to the rubric as often as you need to during the week. The class is all about sharing knowledge, so use discussions as a way of creating a community resource for yourself and your colleagues.
