(-3 points). In small group communication, theories are useful because they help you explain communication behaviors and/or predict the outcome of communication practices. For example, during Addison’s freshman year of college, she knew she’d never make it through four years without a solid group of like-minded friends. In high school, her speech class briefly covered symbolic convergence theory. Addison used this theory as she tried out different school clubs asking questions about the group’s past events, traditions and so on to find out common themes.
Bump, Set, Spike! In the first few days of my summer class, ENGL 1301, we have looked at the significance of creating a successful argument. The main focus has been over the use of ethos, pathos and logos appeals in a writer or speaker’s argument in an attempt to persuade their audience that what they are saying is truth. To be recognized as a member of a discourse community, a person must learn the practices and distinctive communication used in that community, and be able to function as one of its valuable components. In this paper, I will prove that I entered the discourse community of sand volleyball players this past summer by establishing my credibility, gaining knowledge of the game, and learning to influence the emotions of other members of the community.

I joined Long Beach Community Action Partnership (L.B.C.A.P) and became a video and photography intern in their Leadership And Mentoring Program (L.A.M.P). They taught me all the tools I needed and helped strengthen my talent for the visual arts. While I was a part of L.A.M.P I directed, edited, and filmed various short pieces like a PSA on nutrition and the serious health risks involved with obesity along with a music video that was shown to investors at a L.B.C.A.P event. I also did photo coverage for a local community service activity Boing sis in Long Beach which is featured on L.B.C.A.P’s website. Working as a video/photography intern just gave me more assurance and made me completely cretin of my goal for perusing a career in

My interest to work with youth began when I was in high school, where I became responsible for teaching K-5th grade students praise dances at a summer performing arts camp. After such leadership experience, I worked with my church leaders to develop a praise dance team for the youth. This leadership ability, in addition to being a team member, is demonstrated through a variety of jobs I have held during my undergraduate and graduate school years. such as being a mall guest service associate, a K-5th grade after school physical education instructor for the Henry County Public School System, and an application assistant for the Brain and Spinal Injury Trust Fund Commission of Georgia. During my three years as a Big Brother Big Sister mentor for the Atlanta Public School
When I first came to college, there were several clubs and fraternities to choose from but I knew the one I wanted to join most was one involved in service. Through Alpha Phi Omega, I have been able to participate in many community outreach projects. I love the bonds and interactions I gain from these experiences, and one that stood out was a program called Saturday Partners in Education, in which a child chooses you as a role model and buddy for the day. Shy, nine-year-old Heather chose me. By the end of our time together, she was showering me with hugs and insisting I keep all of her arts and crafts projects.
Introduction During this semester I have learned a lot about different Aboriginal issues, and how they pertain to my future career as a social worker. For this final paper, I have chosen to explore the child welfare systems in Canada. This past summer, I worked as a summer student in child protection for the Ministry of Social Services. During this time, most of the parents and children I worked with were Aboriginals. I truly enjoyed the work I did during the summer, and would consider child protection as a future career option.
Reflection on Relationship with whanau 26/02/2014 Describe From the first day of my field practice, I have built the positive relationship with the tamariki, whanau and kaiako at Topkids Mptotaiko.
