COMM 1001: Week 4 Assignment Worksheet (Part 1 of your Week 5 Perception Paper) Directions: Please save the document to your own computer using the naming convention "COMMWK4Assgn+last name+first initial" as the Submission Title. The file name identifies you and indicates to your instructor that your worksheet is available to grade. Please fill in the answers in the boxes provided by TYPING in your answers. If you need more space than is provided, the box will expand as you write. So, no need to worry about space. Do not write your answers in a separate document because your instructor uses the rubric after each question to grade that section of this worksheet. You may use the rubric as a guide to make sure you completed that question correctly. Then, please submit this worksheet to the regular Week 4 Assignment submission link in the classroom. Section 1. Introduction Using the directions in the blue part of each box, write an introduction for your week 5 full paper in the boxes below. Be sure to follow the directions in each box. First write a sentence (or more if needed) to gradually introduce your reader to the topic of perception. Try to be creative and original. For instance, you could tell a brief story about how perception played a role in a situation from your own life. Years ago I had a foot race with a close friend that was always trying to prove he was faster than I was. We marked off a starting and finish line and commenced to run the race. After having beaten him I asked him how it felt to be in last place. His response was, “what do you mean I finished second not last.” As you can see from this short conversation our perceptions of the outcome were very different but both accurate. This makes the point that perception is often based on differing interpretations and thus it is critical that we reach common understandings when engaged in conversation. The second part of a proper introduction is a thesis or purpose statement. In this worksheet, we will give you the thesis. In your paper next week, you may choose to use this thesis or write your own. A possible thesis for this paper would be: This paper will help me to understand how perception works through doing an analysis of what three observers declared were their perceptions of a photograph. Finally, write a sentence or two that previews what your three main points for this paper will be. You have already been given the three main points. They are: 1) Explanation of the steps of the perception process. 2) Description of your observers and how their background might affect their perception of the world. 3) Analysis of the observers’ descriptions of the photo. Here is an example of a good preview of these three main points: In this paper, first I will explain the three step process of perception; second, I will provide a description of my three observers complete with an explanation as to how their backgrounds might affect their perceptions of the world.

    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.
