Paper due: Friday, December 11, 11:59 pm on Blackboard
Inspired by the lucrative self-help industry, people have taken to the Internet to offer
readers advice on how to best live their lives. Writers in online environments offer us
guidelines for dealing with romantic troubles, family squabbles, and workplace disputes.
But what do the authors really know about interpersonal communication? You will write
a paper analyzing and critiquing the advice provided in a series of online advice articles.
Select three (3) advice articles from the list provided. For each of the three articles,
complete the following steps:
Introduction. In 2-3 sentences, summarize the author’s aims and objectives in your
own words. What is the author trying to help readers improve?
Author’s Recommendation #__. Identify two (2) distinct pieces of
advice/recommendations provided by the author related to interpersonal
communication. For each recommendation, you should:

a. Summarize the recommendation primarily using your own words, but you
may use quotes of up to 6 words a time, e.g., The author states that
stonewalling should be “avoided at all costs,” especially when the source
of conflict… If the advice contains any terms that the average reader may
not understand, you must provide a definition in your own words, e.g.,
Stonewalling is defined as…
b. Assess the degree to which this advice is sound. A thoughtful assessment
will make reference to course material (lecture, textbook, or online reading
material). One helpful way to think about this section is to remember that
you are making an argument. In this section, you are convincing your
reader that the author is providing appropriate or inappropriate advice to
Is their advice consistent or inconsistent with a theory’s predictions? With
strategies that the textbook recommends? With research findings
discussed in lecture or an online reading? As you reference specific
course terms and theories, briefly define these terms in your own words. If
you are referring to a term you already defined in part a, you do not need
to define it again. You may not use direct quotes in this section, except in
reference to the article you are evaluating.

Use APA format to reference any ideas that are not your own.
