To get us started in reading the chapter material and prepare us for the Class Discussions you are being asked to do a chapter ‘map’ for some of the assigned reading chapters. You can do these freehand or by using a software that can help you create the visual map of what you thought was significant or caught your attention in your reading. You can also choose to create a subordinated outline from your reading of the chapters through writing or typing. This is your choice based on your reading.
Each map should be ORGANIZED to include the following areas:
There are a number of ways to construct a Concept Map. Check out these links to see which way most fits you.
Of course, you can also do a freehand concept map (especially if you are artistically inclined). Remember: color is important in aiding your recall of the material so…be colorful, use images or whatever else will help you remember what you read. What ever you do you will need to take a picture if you have drawn the mind map or save the document with your notes and submit the part one with the part two attached.
After you complete the concept map for the readings in any way you are comfortable, answer the following questions about your reading. Explaining your thinking demonstrates your sincerity so please do think carefully and respond authentically.
SUBMIT YOUR NOTES PART 1, 2, AND 3 IN THIS SUBMISSION SPACE and UPLOAD YOUR RECORDING
After reading these chapters look at the material in these chapters and identify one or two concepts or communication skills identified here that will help you work more successfully in a team environment. Identify the concept and then explain why and what it would look like in the actual communication experience. What in this chapter can help you work better in a team situation at work or school?
