You can attach a reference page (any style you choose) that accurately depicts all sources used in this essay. 3. There is not a specific word/page count for this assignment, but please be sure to answer all parts of the questions in depth! Suggestions: 1. While I talked about most of these theories in class, do some research/reading to really acquaint yourself with the ideas/authors associated with the theories. 2. Dont write the entire test in one sitting. I have noticed that people who use this method start out strong and burn out as they go deeper into the test. So, I would suggest writing them one question at a time with time between those sessions. 3. Dont view this as busy work or an assignment. Each of these questions speak to issues that you personally face on a daily basis as well as issues that have impact in the world around us. Spend some time reflecting on your thoughts on ethical communication as it relates to persuasive venues, spend some time thinking about the way that messages impact the worldviews of individuals and the larger consequences of those impactsSpend some time thinking about how your identification as a Miser or Scientist has impacted the good/bad choices you have made in your life etc. To this end. Personal examples, stories, random musings, loosely connected examples, jokes are all encouraged!!!!!
