Exploring Intercultural Communication Competence and Cultural Diversity Awareness: An Analysis of Three Perspectives

You will interview at least two people who belong to cultural groups other than your own and who themselves are from different cultures so that you may reflect on and analyze your intercultural communication competence as well as the importance of cultural diversity awareness. As part of your analysis, you should apply concepts from your studies. Specifically, you should draw on your knowledge of the Five Dimensions of Culture, as presented by Communication in the Real World (2016), and how they affect intercultural communication, as presented in the Communication and Diversity lesson.
As part of your analysis, be sure to include at least three different perspectives when analyzing the Five Dimensions of Culture. These perspectives should include those from each of your interviewees as well as your own, to allow for the analysis of at least three different cultures.
You will present the results of this interview and your communication reflection/analysis in a 4-6-page essay, following APA documentation for any source material used as part of your analysis, in addition to the text. Properly cite and source all references.

“Confucius and Ethical Communication: Examining the Life and Ideas of a Chinese Philosopher” Confucius and Ethical Communication: Examining the Life and Ideas of a Chinese Philosopher Biographical Information: Confucius, also

Biographical Information: Who is this person? What is their biographical information, especially as it relates to their philosophical view of communication and ethics? This helps us understand what life experience might have shaped their ideas, and the nature of the culture and the history of the times. This always helps us evaluate how useful an ethicist’s ideas are to our contemporary situation.
What is their specific view(s) on communication? If they do not write specifically about communication, then how do others view their stance on ethical communication? Use specific examples to help us better understand what the ethicist was saying and how we might apply those ideas to a communication situation today. This is key: your report must focus on the ethical communication guidelines or philosophy of your ethicist, not just on their philosophy of life, of humans and of communication in general.
A section where you insert your education analysis of this ethicist and their approach to ethical communication (strengths and weaknesses). This is where YOU get to insert your opinion through analysis.
A reminder on the practical matters: Approximately 7 to 9 pages in length, typed, double-spaced. You should aim for a source per page. Always evaluate the source of information you find on the web to make sure you can defend the credibility of the source. It is much safer to use articles and observations from published books and academic articles as these have been reviewed by other scholars before publication.

“Examining White Privilege and Racism in Contemporary America: A Critical Analysis of DiAngelo’s ‘White Fragility'”

Writing Your EssayThe analysis essay is a form of expository prose, a kind of writing in which you argue several points.  The topic of your analysis is your critical response to the ideas in one of the articles.  To begin, examine several or all essays attached to this assignment (Blacksher & Valles, Buchanan, DiAngelo, Tatum)  and then decide on the one to which you will respond.  Then, reread the chosen article several times, noting the thesis and the subpoints in the reading.  You can also note aspects of style that affect the strengths and weaknesses in the article, and how well the article develops its main and subpoints. You may need to do additional research about each of the authors before you begin formulating your analysis. For example, learn more about DiAngelo’s  arguments by researching other works by this author or by locating other sources on white fragility concept. You then need to formulate your critical response to the article.  Consider whether you agree with the main point, the persuasiveness of the arguments, the arrangement of the subpoints (organization), clarity, the intellectual level of the writing, emotional and/or logical appeals, and the writing style. Then begin to outline your essay, deciding on your thesis, and the supporting subpoints you will develop.  Consider also how you will organize your essay.  It is usually best to begin with an introduction in which you seek the reader’s attention, state your thesis, and preview the subpoints. Then, develop your subpoints which will be the main the body of your essay.  Finally, plan a conclusion that restates your thesis, reviews the subpoints (briefly), and ends with an effective closing. You will probably need to revise your outline several times, and keep going back to the article.Once you have a good outline, begin writing your essay. It is recommended that you write several drafts and take time between each one in order to effectively refine your essay.  Although your audience is the professor in COM 332, consider that, overall, you are addressing a college educated reader.  Strive for clear organization, clarity, and developing 2-3 subpoints in support of your thesis.  You need to show whether you agree with the thesis in the article, and explain the basis for your agreement (or disagreement).Additional Research RequiredTo support your analysis, you must cite at least 2 scholarly sources. These have to be in addition to sources you read as part of the course. So citing course readings is strongly suggested but will not count towards the 2 source requirement.Grading CriteriaThe essays will be evaluated according to:  1) soundness of content (logic and reasoning in support of the thesis; development of main points; 2) clear organization (intro, body, conclusion; subpoints fully developed);  3) writing style (effective language, grammar, punctuation, and proper format in references) either MLA or APA are acceptable styles of referencing; and 4) use of sources (cited sources are credible and used fully, not just for one quote) ReferencesBlacksher, E., & Valles, S.
