Select a group to work with (4-5 members).
Within your group, select a generation that you will be catering to
(i.e. toddlers, school age, adolescents, adults, older adults)
One person in the group must take on the role of the following:
- Education/ Recreation
- Community Member/Parent or parent committee
- Political Decision Maker/Financial Support
- Social Advocacy (i.e. SSW, Social Justice Advocate, etc.)
- Interpersonal Communication Specialist
*(if doing an *other, please substitute one of the categories: your group can create another category; however, please ensure they are relevant to the topic).
*4 of the 5 major topics must be covered.
Interpersonal Communication & Social Advocacy ARE MANDATORY
The Canadian Government has legislated that “All citizens are to complete the Interpersonal Communication Course.” It is your task to introduce Interpersonal Communication (IC) to each citizen.
Present the needs, benefits, outcomes, etc. and a 5 year plan of what the community will look like after your team engages the community with these Interpersonal Communication services.
Your group will submit a research paper, pamphlet/flyer, presentation (20-25 mins), as well as an evaluation of each member.
The Research Paper is worth 40% (2-5 pages), the Presentation is worth 40%, the Pamphlet is worth 15% and the (honest) Peer Evaluation is worth 5% and is 100% confidential (others will not see what you submitted in your peer evaluation). The peer evaluation will be completed ONCE THE PRESENTATION IS OVER AND SUBMITTED TO INSTRUCTOR AT THE END OF CLASS.
