Crisis Communication Option: Preparation Worksheet The assignment indicates that your group needs to meet four basic objectives in the symposium, however you divide your topic among yourselves. I have listed some questions for each of these objectives that may help guide your research and preparation. You don’t have to answer all of the questions for each objective as a requirement for the speeches, but thinking about them and answering them while you prepare may help you develop your symposium to provide a deeper understanding of the crisis, its response, what we can learn from it. Some questions, as you will note, are different wordings to get at the ideas in different ways, so don’t be confused if you see some overlap. To be clear: you need not hand in anything from this worksheet; it is merely designed to help you think about the objectives when you prepare. Objective 1: Inform the Audience about the Particular Crisis a. What type of crisis was this? b. What were the basic details of the event, as they unfolded at the time: who was involved, where did it take place, what was the timeline, etc.? c. What type of harms resulted from the crisis (who/what was affected)? d. How severe was the crisis? e. How quickly did news spread about the crisis, what kind of media coverage did it receive, etc? f. How severe or significant was the crisis perceived at the time, how much concern was demonstrated, how urgent was its need to be addressed, etc? Objective 2:
