However, if someone comes that has a different idea about the training of their child we should listen and to their perspective? There may be no easy solution, but we can start by building a good trusting relationship and using good communication skills. In the Gonzalez-Mena text, she explains a process called RERUN to help work out diversity issues. The acronym stands for reflect, explain, reason, understand, and negotiate. (2008) These steps do not necessarily follow any particular order, but we have to recognize our own feelings before we can honestly communicate with others.
If we do not do many reading we will not project the confidence we should. My writing is similar as Burke’s “Unending Conversation” before talking I had to listen and be prepared to have a strong valid argument in a controversy. Many people have disagreed with my opinion but others have agreed just as in Burke’s metaphor. When it comes to a conversation and academic reading and writing we need to keep in mind that not everyone will have the same opinion as we
They distance themselves from ideas to form a better judgment. One’s critical thinking skills are used in both methods because they try to find any contradictions or additional reasons about why they do or don’t believe the writer’s ideas. Critical thinking in this way is crucial because it will lead to critical readers, reiterating the important role it plays in other
Interpretation is the main purpose in an inquiry discussion question because interpretations will be different for every student. Interpretation questions stimulate conversation and appeal to the text for evidence. A good interpretive question composes questions from the text to prepare discussion and forces the leader to work with ideas about its meaning. The characteristics for good interpretive questions are that they should make you think and have you doubt yourself. When you are going to answer there should be two
Have you ever tried to influence the audience’s view on a certain subject? Have you ever found yourself arguing with someone over something you believed to be true, but you couldn’t find a way to convince them to believe you? If so, what other strategies you will try to convince your audience? Now, delivering clear and persuasive communication is becoming more and more important. The communicators need to try to make their point in a different way that best suits the message they are sending.
My classmate’s critique offered me several different positive viewpoints in regards to the body and flow of my paper. Thus, encouraged me to elaborate more about time management, modes to overcome obstacles when faced with unexpected situations, and to explain in greater depth why I identify myself as a kinesthetic learner. Critiquing another classmate’s written work helps to learn how to better communicate with one another and how to accept corrective criticism from their peers. Most positions, within the workforce, require staff to effectively collaborate with one another. Therefore, learning to accept corrective criticism is a must and it will help you achieve success not solely within the workforce, but also in your day to day life
It can be difficult to understand what it means to be a discourse or what communities fall under that category, and that is why I feel like John Swales’ definition of a discourse community is the the one that makes the most sense and the one that almost anybody can apply to communities they are part of and determine if they are discourses or not. Even though Gee and Porter had good points regarding discourses and good arguments, one almost had to be a linguist to fully understand what they were saying. They did help Swales get his point across more clearly in some instances though. Thanks to Swales I now know for a fact that my English 1113 class is a discourse community and I achieved that by following the six rules Swales presented as necessary to be a discourse community.

The Majorian / Minorian excersise gave rise to explore collaboration, individuals behavourial propensities, communication and how trust is a vital part of any collaboration. This exercise also gave me a clearer understanding of how the individuals or groups might feel when collaboration is set up to address an issue arising from identified perceived needs. From the onset of this exercise there was a lack of trust, this was a direct result of having very limited information, such as why the Majorians had come to offer support, what were they offering, also what would they gain from the offer? On reflection the Ladder of Inference was very evident, as throughout the short discussion and with the limited information available assumptions were made, past experiences influenced these assumptions beliefs, values, mind-sets determined the way we thought and acted. I have learnt that challenging or clarifying assumptions and encouraging people to reframe is essential.
Learning Autobiography (LAB #2): Four Liberal Arts Breadth Areas A liberal arts education encompasses much more than just the requirements necessary for the degree program chosen. It seeks to teach students how learn in a distinct way. It creates a desire to increase knowledge of the world and how to improve communications in society. It provides the skills to use multiple intelligences, as described by Howard Gardner (1983), to engage people and foster connections. Understanding the value of a liberal arts education is an important factor to getting the most out of it.
I have also learnt that to be an effective counsellor, you need to be able to understand the importance of each client’s beliefs. As a counsellor it is good to understand that I will have a different set of views and beliefs than what the client may have, this does not mean I am right and the client is wrong. It just means that once I can acknowledge and push aside my beliefs, I can really focus on what this client is trying to say, and how I can help them. Some of the key values that I think would help make me a good counsellor is, treating clients with respect, try to be understanding and empathetic and being a good listener to
This is a resource used to help find credible and scholarly information. Without learning how to properly search for your essays topic, you could potentially get false information. That is why learning the how to use this was very helpful within this course. Within the subject of finding reliable sources, we also learned how to properly cite these sources found. When writing a paper, you need to find research that backs up your statement.
DuPraw’s and Marya Axner’s article “Working on CommonCross-cultural Communication, they pointed out that “[a]n appreciation of patterns of cultural difference can assist us in processing what it means to be different in ways that are respectful of others…”. We usually see different cultures as abnormal or “wrong” because it is not what we’re used to. This quote from the article is telling us that we need to become empathetic to successfully understand others from different backgrounds. When you stop to listen and put yourselves in others’ shoes, you are respecting and understanding their ideas. To fully succeed in cross cultural communications, you need to learn, accept and appreciate the differences each culture has and be considerate of people with diverse developmental
In a way to introduce me to future academic writings, the course of English Composition 1, indeed, has taught me important skills that can help me cope for future non-major required courses for me and in some aspects of my major. First, with the help of the “Create a Research Space” (CARS) Model of Research Introductions by writer and linguist John Swales, I learned how to decipher some readings by famous writers such
Also, I try to relay to the audience Calvin 's reasoning behind the requirements. Furthermore, I respond to opposing arguments to build my claim, and ensure my perspective is well-thought out and credible. Overall, my perspective is biased because
