Group Chat
  • The Power of Language. Complete the slip of paper on the power of language. Have a discussion with your group.
    • Discuss how those words would negatively impact interpersonal communication
      • (e.g. if used, would you continue to communicate? Change the way you communicate? Change your perceptions of that person?)
  • At end of discussion, on back of your slip—what did you learn? Any word surprise you? Altered any of your current views?

application exercise 3 worth 10 points
Application Exercise #3 (Worth 10 points):
  • There’s a current debate over if there is a difference between the way men and women communicate verbally. Observe a conversation between a male and female (either out in public or on a television show). Focus on their verbal communication. What differences do you notice in terms of the way each sex communicated with each other? How did these differences (or similarities) appear to impact interpersonal communication? Also discuss examples of how the two sexes communicated on an interpersonal level by reflecting on some of the terms you learned this chapter (e.g. connotative vs. denotative meaning, other factors impacting their use of symbols, their use of verbal symbols in positive or negative ways). Did your findings align with how you feel about the current debate? Must use terminology from the text. Can include as paragraphs or as lists (of sentences and short phrases—not 2 words). Must be typed.

Consider the role of verbal communication:
