(I have an e-Text if you need it)

I need a total of 12 logs.

Application Log: After you read a chapter describing a communication theory, you are required to make a specific application of the theory to your own life and experience. Write 1-2 paragraphs about it, and post this as a journal entry to the Blackboard. Think of this assignment as a way to find practical value of each theory. What framework does the theory provide to help you understand your or other people%u0432%u0402%u2122s communication practices? What prediction does it make for the future? How can you use this theory and the conceptual tools that it offers? Can it help you to improve or advance your personal life, your relationships, your professional or educational experience, your role in the local or global society? Make sure you post your journal entry before the class where we will be discussing the theory in question. All the late or missing entries will have an effect on your final grade. At the beginning of each class three people will be selected to present their example of a theory application.
