The Everyday Writer (Chapter 8)

Establishing Roles (discussion leader, timekeeper, recorder, and reporter)
Listening Actively (speaking and listening work together; respect and mutual cooperation are key)
Practicing turn-taking (refrain from dominating or receding from the conversation; invite quiet members into the discussion by asking for their input)
Being accountable (both individually and as a group; staying on task, meeting the requirements, and keeping all team members informed)

Small-group discussions:
four basic strategies

Value teamwork—put the group goals above your own, to be accountable for the group as a whole, not just for yourself (p. 47).
Three levels of participation—Self-oriented behavior (safest and most natural level, focuses on self); Partner-oriented behavior (bonding with one or two others in a group to ask questions or have discussions); Group-oriented behavior (the best group members always think in terms of the group, its purpose, and audience).

Small groups: the spirit of collaboration

Oral messages: A two-way loop (speaking and listening)—Speaker and listener trade roles. Speaker prepares oral messages in anticipation of listeners needs and interests. Listener responds by sending nonverbal feedback (nodding, frowning, leaning forward, etc.). Speakers make adjustments in pace, volume, repetition, etc.
Oral presentations: Applying the rhetorical pentad—“It is highly useful to plan and reflect on your oral communication work” using the tips on pp. 46-47.

Oral communication

Who exactly are my readers (direct, indirect, and potential)?
What do my readers know about my subject?
Do my readers agree with my thesis?
What kind of language should I use with these readers?
Knowing your reader and what they know about your subject should influence what you write, how you write it, and how you present the appeals in your writing (ethos, logos, and pathos).

Considerations to make when writing

Understanding the concepts of context, substance, organization, style, and delivery will help you effectively communicate in each of the WOVE methods.
WOVE Wisdom (p. 42) ‘…when we look at writing as a process, we’re really looking at a complex literate activity that includes reading and writing, feeling and thinking, speaking and listening, observing and acting.’ –Charles Bazerman and Paul Prior (Professors of English)

How Do I apply the communication basics?

Written messages: key writing concepts

Ancient Greek philosopher, Aristotle divided communication situations into three parts:
Ethos-combination of knowledge, trustworthiness, values, and motives critical to your readers. (Appeal to ethics)
Logos-your message, a mixture of your topic, your stance on the topic, and your purpose in writing. (Appeal to logic)
Pathos-set of values, attitudes, beliefs, interests, and knowledge that your reader brings to the communication situation. (Appeal to emotions)

Written messages: the communication triangle
