Comm 200 Theory Critique or Extension Paper (150 points) For this paper, you are asked to choose one specific theory from the textbook or from lecture. You may choose another communication theory from outside class, but should only do that after getting instructor/TA permission. You are NOT to choose a meta-theory for this assignment; instead, focus on theories from chapters 5-29 of the textbook. You will write a 4-page paper that explains the basics of this theory and then either critiques or extends that theory. Regardless of the theory, your work will have these two main sections (review of theory and then either critique or extension). For papers critiquing a theory, you should begin with a brief introduction and then do a brief review of the main part of the theory. Next, identify 2-3 concerns/problems with the theory that limit it based on accepted criteria for “good” theory.

    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.
