4 Preface It’s an exchange. We live in a social world, and in this social world, we exchange ideas. We tell stories. We brainstorm and solve problems. We debate. We offer advice and support. We listen carefully to new points of view and (we hope) respond appropriately. Here is an example. If you participate in social media, like Facebook or Twitter, or if you regularly read and post to a blog, you are exchanging ideas with people all the time. It’s the give and take, or what we call reciprocity, that makes social media work. We communicate ideas to people, and that communication goes two (or more) ways. It’s an exchange . We participate in the exchange of ideas in school and at work, too. If you’ve been in a writing class, or maybe an art class or a dance class, or if you’ve found yourself sitting at a table with co-workers at a brainstorming meeting, you’ve probably been asked to look at the work that someone else has created, and you’ve exchanged ideas about that work. You’ve offered them feedback—hopefully feedback that is constructive and generous—and one day, you hope to receive the same kind of feedback on your own work.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
