Assignment # 1 (Due Wednesday October 11) Thus far in the course we have discussed the complexities involved with communication, and have read and discussed several theorists who have attempted to create a useful model for the study of human communication (i.e. Thayer, Dance, Schramm, Lasswell). All of these models explain whether or not communication is one-way or two- way and emphasize a specific aspect of the communication process (i.e. time, field of experience, opinion leader).

When you site from the textbook, please be sure to use correct parenthetical notation. Since all of your data will come from the textbook, there is no need to do a works cited for this paper. Have fun with this assignment, be creative, and try to develop, discuss, explain, and illustrate your original model of communication as explicitly and as straightforward as possible....
