Communication Project: Topic and References Assignment Instructions


The purpose of this assignment is for you to begin thinking about and preparing for your upcoming Communication Project: Final Assignment. Considering these details ahead of time will help you to finish your project in a timely manner. This assignment is meant to be flexible with regards to your choice of interests and format so that the work is meaningful to you and plays to your creative/professional strengths. You will also gain experience searching for, evaluating, and interpreting academic material. Before completing this assignment, thoroughly read the Communication Project: Final Assignment Instructions so you know the guidelines for the final project and what will be expected of you (essentially, you will be creatively communicating course content to a hypothetical layperson audience).



For this assignment you will decide on your topic and find references for your upcoming Communication Project: Final Assignment. You must submit the following pieces of information for approval:

  1. Your topic choice – your topic can be one that is covered in any module (even future ones) in the course.
  2. Intended layperson audience – examples include adolescents, parents, teachers, etc.
  3. Intended format of project – examples include PowerPoint presentation, website, pamphlet, YouTube video/PSA, etc.
    • Remember that you will be creating this project, not just proposing the idea, so be sure that you submit an idea you can execute.
    • Feel free to get creative here. Your format does not have to be one of those listed above. If you have a different idea, feel free to include it and your instructor will let you know if there are any foreseeable issues.

    • You must include APA-style references for 2 sources:
  5. One source must be a course reading.
