Pasadena City College Components of Intercultural Communication Discussion
This paper requires you to apply the components of intercultural communication (5 key concepts from chapters 6-10 (choose 1 concept from each attached ppts of each chapter)) to a video from the choices below:
Amazon: A League of Their Own (PG) or Megamind (PG)
Disney+: Soul (PG), Coco (PG) any Toy Story (G), Encanto (PG), Raya (PG)
Hulu: Abominable (PG), 50 First Dates (PG-13), Parasite (R)
Netflix: The Help (PG-13), The Princess and the Frog (G), The Midnight Sky (PG-13)
You should have an introduction paragraph (describing the video overview), five body paragraphs (meaning five examples to support your thesis of each of the 5 concepts you choose), and a conclusion. A paragraph is 5-8 sentences.
Start with an attention getter/hook. You will begin by introducing the video. Then include a purpose statement or thesis that explains the analysis that includes the terms you are using in your analysis. Then you will include a transition sentence that leads into your analysis.
You will include 5 body paragraphs, each with an example of communication in the video that relates to interpersonal communication. Please highlight, bold, or italicize the concepts. You must include examples when evaluating the event. I want to know what happened specifically. You will describe what the concept means, what you saw in the movie that displayed this concept, then relate this to your life.
For example (Coco):
“The Rivera family’s rich culture is the strongest part of Miguel’s character. Miguel disclosed to the mariachi that he was a musician, but had never told his family, because they do not like music. This relates to the concept collectivism. Collectivism is when culturally, people come together and work for the greater good within the community. Originally, Miguel did not want to disclose his desire to become a musician with his family, because he was worried about disrupting the family culture. This shows that Miguel and his family are collectivistic. My family is also collectivistic. When I chose to go to college, it had a lot to do with my family’s expectations of me, and my role within my family. Collectivism can relate to context.”
Please include transition statements between paragraphs (the last sentence is an example of a transition statement).
Finally, the paper should end with a brief conclusion paragraph (with a recap), including what you learned about interpersonal communication by watching this video.
