Goal: For this assignment, you may choose to reflect on a random act of kindness or interpersonal chaos.” In this step, you should detail your analysis of the experience in a formal paper.
After you have selected a topic and drafted your ideas (see Kindness/Chaos Assignment, Step 1 – Draft of Paper), please compose a 1- to 2-page (double-spaced, 12 pt. font, 1″ margins) final version of your paper that details the following:
- Describe the experience in detail highlighting in particular specific elements of interpersonal communication (e.g., What messages were exchanged? How were messages interpreted? What was the tone or climate of the conversation? In what context or setting did the conversation occur?).
- Describe what made you interpret the situation as unexpectedly beneficial/effective (in the case of kindness) or surprisingly hurtful/harmful/inappropriate (in the case of chaos). How do you personally react to what happened? In this section, move past simply describing what happened and offer your deeper analysis of what was going on and how you read the situation.
- Explain how this situation relates to at least TWO ideas, concepts, principles, theories, or guidelines from lecture or the textbook. Fully explain each course concept and then explain how it helps you understand or unpack what happened in the situation you described.
You may informally cite information from lecture or the textbook as, “According to the textbook….” or “This situation shows a concept from lecture called….” Therefore, APA formatting is NOT required for this assignment. Nevertheless, I do encourage you to try your hand at APA if you’d like. You will need APA for other assignments later this semester.
