Final Self Evalutaion

Final Self Evaluation

 

The competing theory that best explains the interpersonal communication that I see in the comments to my presentation is “Relevance of Good Research”.  Stephanie’s lecture presents many ways in which students describe a “good research paper”. Students mentioned that a lot of research is needed in order to have a good paper, because it’s important “to know the facts”. The comments to my presentation used many examples from other classmates in order to support their main idea/argument.  For example, Spiceynoodlesoup used quotes in order to prove that being “open” would lead to effective “nexting”. Spiceynoodlesoup quoted a student saying that “While reading what she(Summer22) wrote I was seeing openness being used as a tool to express her own reflections” and “as a way to raise her IPC.” Then Spiceynoodlesoup when on to rephrase the quote but with his own words, “…(Summer22) interactions with other classmates illustrated how openness can encourage nexting.” This shows how good research can lead to selective quotes that will support the writer’s main idea/argument.

 

Another example comes from Saboy82’s blog response. In his response Saboy82 wrote about the common trait that some students share in this class (the trait of being multicultural).  He mentioned how Gym411 and Cake have experienced some of these cultural barriers that he has seen himself living in the US.  Saboy82 mentions how students can overcome these cultural differences by doing the following “To build a meaningful relationship you have to disclose yourself to the other person”. At the end of his response Saboy82 mentions the importance of being “open” and listening to others by quoting what another classmate said about the subject (Grant2u), that Grant2u “… was no longer the one with all the answers, but the one who had to listen, let go, and allow someone else to lead the way.” Again, we can see how both students used quotes and paraphrased other students in order to strengthen the level of their claim.

 

Hopefully we have learned how to do our research before we write our papers. I know I don’t want to get “…squashed like a bug and look like a fool” (Steph’s Lecture).

    The theory that explains the interpersonal communication in regards to the comments in my presentation was “Relevance of Good Research”. The lecture offered by Stephanie portrays many ways in which the student describes a “good research paper”. Students mentioned that a lot of research is needed in order to create a good paper. The comments to my presentation used many examples from other classmates and readings in order to support the main idea. For example, Spiceynoodlesoup used quotes in order to prove that being “open” would lead to effective “nexting”. Spiceynoodlesoup quoted a student saying, “While reading what Summer22 wrote I saw openness being used as a tool to express her own reflections” and “as a way to raise her interpersonal communication.” Then Spiceynoodlesoup rephrased the quote but with his own words, this shows how good research can lead to selective quotes that will support the writer’s main idea/argument. In my blog response I wrote about how Gym411 and I share the commonality of being from a different culture. I had also mentioned how Gym411 had experienced some of the cultural barriers that I had experienced myself living in the US. I also mentioned how students can overcome these cultural differences by building meaningful relationship through being open, listening to other, and knowing what to self disclose. These lessons that we learnt from Stephanie and our fellow classmate act as tools when we have to do our research before we write our papers. I know I don’t want to get “look like a fool” (Stephanie’s Lecture) by having insufficient research.
