Review for Exam 2 Comm 250: Introduction to Communication Theory General Comments and Guidelines The exam will be no more than 50 multiple choice questions. The exam will cover Chapters 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12 in your text (West & Turner). I would like you to know names associated with the theories. Dates are less important (i.e., I will not test you on dates) Focus will be on class notes but questions from the text will be asked--you should use your text in conjunction with your class notes to further your understanding of the topics discussed in class. The exam will require you to know more than just class terms and definitions (although you must know these). You will be asked: (1) to identify examples of the theories acting in “real life” situations; and (2) to apply your understanding of the topics learned for the first exam (i.e., metatheoretical assumptions, theory building and testing) to the theories we discussed up until this point. Symbolic Interaction Theory (SIT): George Herbert Mead, 1934 What is the goal (purpose) of SIT? What are SIT’s concepts and explanations? How are the concepts defined? How do the explanations for each concept relate to one another? Mind Self Society What research has been generated from SIT? Chicago School Iowa School The New Iowa School How do symbolic interactionist theorists define communication? Relate to issues involved in defining communication. What are SIT’s metatheoretical assumptions? Ontological? Epistemological? Axiological? Is SIT a good theory?
