Project #70537 - Essay

You are required to write a 5-8 page paper on some aspect of interpersonal communication. Here are some questions that might help guide you to find a good topic. You can use these as a starting point, or pick any other topic that we have discussed in class:

  • How does social media impact our interpersonal communication?
  • Ethnocentrism: how does it affect our society? Can it be overcome?
  • Women in Power: do they use language differently, and are they perceived differently because of it?
  • How is "self-esteem" being taught in schools today? Is it effective at producing mentally-healthy and high-performing students? Or are there other, better methods out there?
  • Is the anonymous nature of communication and disinhibition present on the Internet (in message boards particularly) leading to a less civilized society? Is freedom of expression more important than civilized discourse?
  • Is privacy in our communication with others an outmoded concept?
  • What is alexithymia and how does it affect our ability to communicate interpersonally?
  • What are some of the most effective ways that students in online courses have found to connect interpersonally?
  • Does the use of social media make romantic relationships easier or more difficult? What are some of the issues partners face when it comes to social media?
  • Are we becoming a more deceptive society?

This is an academic paper, not a personal reflection. You need to find at least two reliable sources and cite them properly in the paper. One of these must be an academic source, preferably a journal article (no, your textbook doesn't count). You can certainly use popular or media sources as well (magazine articles, online blogs, even movies or tv shows) to illustrate your points.  The paper must follow APA or MLA formatting; I don't care which one you use but you need to be consistent.

It's always a good idea to give yourself plenty of time to research, organize, and write a paper. You should start thinking about potential topics early in the semester, and schedule time over several weeks to put it together.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This paper must be put through Turnitin, which has been enabled for this assignment. Your Turnitin score must show that LESS THAN 18% of the paper is unoriginal (in other words, that your paper is not plagiarized). Use your own thoughts and ideas, backed up with the ideas of outside sources, and quote only when necessary.
