COMM102 Michigan State University Explaining What Elements of Culture
In chapter 5-2b, your text suggests, “we learn a culture’s views and patterns in the process of communicating.” We use language, nonverbal cues, and perceptions to mold behaviors of others. A theme that runs through your text is that of civil dialogue in diverse contexts. Remember, also that in the first chapter, we read about communication competence and the two elements involved. Competent communicators can both express their needs and recognize the needs of others.
As we consider culture alongside listening, draft a first post (Due Sunday by 11:59pm) explaining what elements of culture and listening make it difficult to listen effectively when we find ourselves interacting with people of other cultures. Cite content from the text to support your position. Make it 4-6 paragraphs.
Grammar and spelling is important
