Project #46420 - Communication theory report

Hello,

the assignment is to make a paper (report) about a communication theory. the professor is super freaky about plagarism, so i need a playgarism report if possible. 

the theory is about the Interpersonal Cultural communication barrier. the link of the theory

the detailed about the assignment below:

i need you to do the report only, i will do the presentation. 

THEORY REPORT
Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is to comprehensively analyze one theory of communication and become an expert on this theory. You will select the theory you wish to investigate.

Process: There are two parts to this assignment: 1) A written report (detailed below) and 2) A presentation. Please see the assignment sheet for the presentation portion.

Steps for the Written Report:

I. RESEARCH and BACKGROUND

1. Read the chapter in Littlejohn and Foss about your theory (if it is available). Use this information as a starting point for building your understanding.

2. Find articles and/or chapters in which the theorist(s) as the original author(s) discusses and/or describes the theory. If it all possible, find a foundational (original) statement of the theory. Hint: Start with a recent article and review its reference list. That may provide a citation for the foundational piece(s). Example: If you select symbolic interactionism, then you would be expected to find and read some portion of Mead’s Mind, Self and Society, and Blumer’s Symbolic Interactionism.

3. Find and read approximately ten peer reviewed articles that incorporate your theory. Continue to conduct a literature search for academic journal articles that test or employ this theory. You may need to use terms associated with the theory as well as the theory itself. Focusing on articles that appear in communication and/or leadership journals will also help you narrow your search. Based upon the titles and abstracts, compile a list of context areas (e.g., interpersonal, small group, organizational, intercultural, public relations, etc.) in which the theory has been applied and/or tested. This will give you a sense of whether the theory has been applied in mainly one context. You do not need to read all of the articles. However, you should be able to make determinations about context areas from the abstracts.

II. Writing the Report

Write a report that includes the following sections: 

a. A summary of the major tenets of the theory (2-3 pages)

b. A list of the contexts in which the theory has been applied. For each context provide a representative citation for a study in that context.

c. Two summaries of research studies grounded in the theory. Summarize the theories including the following information: i. A full citation for each article in APA style ii. A rationale for the study iii. Research questions/hypotheses (as appropriate to the method) iv. Method v. Results and/or Conclusion

d. An analysis of the theory in which you answer the following questions (2-3 pages): i. How does this theory define communication? ii. How would you evaluate this theory using Littlejohn’s criteria? 1. Theoretical scope 2. Appropriateness of assumptions 3. Heuristic value 4. Validity 5. Parsimony 6. Openness.

III. Format of the Written Report:

i. 12 point font: 8-12 pages (approximately) single-spaced within paragraphs; double-spaced between paragraphs. ii. APA 6th Edition format for references
