Interpersonal relationship
Choose an interpersonal relationship to analyze. The relationship can be one from your own life OR it can be an interpersonal relationship depicted in a movie or series. If you choose an interpersonal relationship from your life, it must be a relationship between you and a significant other (parent, guardian, friend, romantic partner, coach, coworker, family member). If you choose an interpersonal relationship depicted in a movie or series, the relationship must be interpersonal (1:1) and they should be main characters.
Pick FIVE Interpersonal Communication concepts that we have covered to describe and analyze the relationship. See below for a list of broad interpersonal communication topics. You will need to seek out concepts related to those topics.
Organizing your paper
Your paper should include a brief introduction, an analysis portion, a conclusion, and a references page. Use the following guide when completing this assignment:
Introduction. Your introduction should gain your reader’s attention, introduce the interpersonal relationship (context), and provide a clear and preview of the five concepts your paper will address. (½ to 1 page).
Analysis Portion. Each concept-analysis should be about 3/4 of a page and should include the following:
Describe concept: In addition to the assigned readings, you are asked to use at least three outside sources. You can utilize those outside sources where/however needed. Please check the list of outside sources that might be applicable to your concept-analysis at the bottom of the page. Additionally, you are encouraged to include relevant information from class discussions. Please use proper and consistent citation formatting both in-text and in the references page.
Discuss how the concept is at play or how it is depicted in your interpersonal relationship of choice. Be sure to use concrete examples and use the concept vocabulary to analyze those examples. If you are having difficulties identifying examples, use the interpersonal communication topics as a guide to help you look deeper at the relationship and its interactions.
Conclusion. Your conclusion should provide closure, share lessons learned, and a concluding summary.
