Topic/issue: The impact of climate change Gather the following sources: 1. Three different & distinct existing or proposed approaches that attempt to address or resolve your issue. These may come from government documents, think tank documents, news outlets, or any other reliable mainstream publication. 2. Two Web sites for groups concerned about your issue. 3. Four news or feature stories related to your issue. 4. Two opinion pieces or editorials related to your issue—find these in newspapers. 5. Four scholarly articles from peer-reviewed journals. Each of these should be related to your issue, associated stake-holding groups, or related ideas, but do not need to be directly about them. Appropriate cross application of knowledge is welcome. 6. A book that explores ideas related to your issue. Make sure these sources are linked or cited for easy access. After you’ve gathered your sources compose an annotated bibliography using APA, MLA or Chicago Style, writing a 2-5 sentence summary of each source’s thesis and conclusion, it’s usefulness for informing and persuading your audience, and an assessment of its quality. Once you’ve gathered these sources and composed your annotated bibliography, you will create a 3-5 minute topic proposal speech that includes an intro, body, and conclusion. The speech should cover the following: Why you chose this topic, what it means to you, and what makes it appropriate for a college audience. Cite at least three sources during your speech.

In week 8, you’ll turn in a 3-4 paper that focuses on conversations that you’ve

In week 8, you’ll turn in a 3-4 paper that focuses on conversations that you’ve been paying attention to this quarter because this person is valuable to you. Perhaps in the past, you’ve struggled with your communication with this person, or you would just like it to deepen. This person can be a parent, a boss, a spouse or partner, a friend, etc. — anyone who is meaningful to you. The rule of thumb for this paper is: choose a relationship in which the conversations are crucial. In contrast to your Applied Learning Journal, this paper is a deeper analysis and reflection applying all that you’ve learned about interpersonal communication since the beginning of the quarter. In particular, I’d like you to be aware of your perceptions in this particular communication experience (chapter 3 in “Interpersonal Communication”). Did the exercise of listening, being fully present with another person change your perception? Were you able to have a clearer sense of this person’s humanity by deeper listening and more open-ended inquiry? Their unique story? Your paper should include how you applied the different skills and information that you’ve gained from the different readings and videos and how these skills and knowledge affected the outcomes of your conversations. Your weekly learning journal entries can be used as a way of tracking your progress or writing about specific gains or hurdles you’ve encountered in your conversation/s with this particular person. However, your weekly learning journals don’t need to be about this relationship, but I think it will make your paper easier if you use them this way. 5 Elements to be included in your paper and grading rubric (use these elements as Headers): 1. Context of the communication experience. Provide a thorough description of the communication experience so your reader can fully understand who was present including the different social memberships. Cultures present. Who had privilege and why (week 7 will talk more about privilege) (10 points); 2. Listening skills – how skilled were you as a listener in this conversation? What did you do well; what could you have improved? You could go back to your Listening Self Evaluation to assess your skill level (10 points); 3. Verbal and non-verbal aspects – What did you notice about how you communicated verbally and non-verbally to convey understanding and respect? Did you notice any biases surface and if so how did you handle the situation? (10 points) 4. Passages from our texts – I’d like you to include two passages from our texts in your paper — one from each of the books. Select passages that were especially helpful to you. Weave these passages into your narrative making sure to cite source and page number. 5. Summary analysis of where you started as an interpersonal communicator at the beginning of the quarter and where you see yourself now. I suggest that you revisit your Personal Learning Plan goals. Have you made progress on your goals? Which ones? Where do you still see areas of growth needed? (20 points)

Scenario You are the manager of a team of 10 software developers working on a new application for your company, Optimum Way Development, which is based out of Raleigh, North Carolina. Your organization recently acquired a smaller software company based in San Jose, California. You have been informed that your team will be bringing on five people from this newly acquired company; all five people will be moving to Raleigh to join your team. You schedule a phone call with the five new team members and discover that they are upset about the recent impersonal message they received from human resources informing them that they would have to relocate to Raleigh in order to stay employed; no one expressed excitement about joining the team. During this conversation, you also discover that many of the new team members have more education and experience than the people currently on your team. Based on the conversation, you notice that most of these team members are likely older than you, whereas all of the current Raleigh team members are younger than you. After the call, one of your current senior team members approaches you about rumors that are circulating concerning the Raleigh team being required to train the new team members from San Jose. They heard that there are plans to eliminate positions and are concerned the new hires will ultimately be taking their positions. The director who oversees your division has requested that you create and present a recommendation report that documents your plans for managing the conflicts that currently exist or may arise on your team. The director has an advanced degree in a computer science-related field and has worked in technology for over a decade. Directions In order to identify and resolve existing and future conflicts, you have been asked to compose and present your plan for managing conflict for this project. In addition to identifying and resolving the conflicts, you are also responsible for keeping the development of the new application moving forward by continuing to meet scheduled milestones. To do this, you will create a recommendation report and corresponding presentation. The audience for both deliverables is your director. As you create your report and presentation, remember to use communication techniques and platforms that are appropriate for your audience’s preferences and motivations. Both deliverables should be based on the above scenario and include the following: To start, explain the major elements of the software application, including background, audience, functions, and features. Next, explain the areas of conflict for the team. Make sure to include contributing factors and the possible impacts. Articulate the desired outcome of any conflict resolution activities. How would you like to see this conflict resolved? What is the “best-case” scenario? Recommend action steps for managing areas of possible conflict with a detailed explanation on how the action steps contribute to conflict resolution. In the presentation only, use dialogue to communicate the appropriate main ideas to the audience. Although you will not give this presentation over video, you should use the speaker’s notes section in PowerPoint to write the accompanying speech. What to Submit To complete this project, you must submit the following: Recommendation Report Your report should be at least 2 full pages in length (not including a title page), single-spaced and submitted as either a Word document or PDF. Outside resources are not required, but any resources used must be appropriately cited using APA style. You may use the Recommendation Report Template Word Document for this submission. Presentation Your presentation should be in a presentation format (such as PowerPoint) and provide an overview of the main ideas from the recommendation report. Using the speaker’s notes section of PowerPoint, include the speech that would accompany the presentation. Outside resources are not required, but any resources used must be appropriately cited using APA style. ******I have attached the software guidelines that were used for previous assignments. My project is focused on “DataNanny”.******
