You should be able to use the material that you develop here in your final project. Before you tackle this exercise, please make sure you have read the Week 2 course materials.
Objective: To demonstrate a thorough understanding of your communication theory and how it relates to your workplace* communication problem.
Skills: This assignment will help you refine your abilities to execute the following skills for professional-level research:
Background: Please begin this assignment by reading the following information carefully.
A literature review is a critical summary of what subject matter experts have to say about a question or topic. In your case, you will write an account of what scholars have published in peer-reviewed journals about the communication theory that you have determined to be relevant to the communication issue in your workplace.*
Occasionally, you will be asked in school or on the job to write a literature review as a stand-alone report. More often, you will use a literature review to establish the context for a larger business report or business proposal, or for a scholarly report. In your case, your literature review will become a part of your report’s introduction where it will help your readers to understand why the theory is applicable to your workplace communication problem. You will use your literature review to disclose the knowledge and ideas that already have been established on your theory. However, it must not be just a description of the information available. To gain a better understanding of what a literature review is and is not, watch this video from UMGC’s Effective Writing Center at https://youtu.be/2IUZWZX4OGI .
(*Remember, if you are not employed or cannot discuss your workplace, you should be using a communication problem from another organizational setting in which you are involved for your final project, such as school, church, or a community group.)
Content: Based on what you learn, write a 2-page, double-spaced essay in which you explain how the theory that you have chosen relates to your final paper’s research question.
Do not use any quotes or paraphrases in your writing. Just synthesize and summarize what you learned about your communication theory and critique its utility for your final project.
Use American Psychological Association-style end-of-text references to document to create a list of the resources you consulted to learn about your theory. See the university library’s website at https://libguides.umgc.edu/apa-examples for guidance on how to format your references according to the latest edition of the APA’s style manual.
