    1. Communicating and Meeting Personal Needs

      Through a more western ideology of needs and communication, there is the thought that in order to begin communicating at levels besides absolutely necessary , there are prerequired needs that must be met. Certain people may have different needs, and communicating while not being aware this discrepancy may create a rift

    2. Meeting Personal Needs

      In order to successfully begin to communicate effectively, there are certain prerequisites needed. These needs start from physiological and all stack onto each other to allow for self actualization and fostering of healthy communication.

    1. igh grade point average shall not be considered as apre-requisite to eligibility.

      I think some clubs and organizations should have GPA requirements like National Honor Society or to an extent even sports

    2. No teacher will be dismissed or transferred because ofhis political views and/or philosophical disagreementswith administrators.

      I don't know how well this is going to work, but this should be the case no matter what.

    3. Any teacher having a particularlyhigh percentage of the total school dropouts in hisclasses shall be rated by the Citizens Review Boardcomposed of the Educational Issues Committee.

      I disagree because it is also on the students to give their best.

    4. Only area superintendents can suspend students

      Completely disagree with this statement. Superintendents aren't in the schools with the students every day like the teachers are.

    5. All administrators where schools have majority ofMexican-American descent shall be of Mexican-American descent.

      Is it bad that I think this is now being unfair to white people or other races?

    6. dministrators and teachers who show any form ofprejudice toward Mexican or Mexican-Americanstudents,

      Punishment for prejudice towards Mexican Americans will be fired. I don't know if I agree with this, I think it should be a warning the first time.

    1. At first, many of our students complain thatusing templates will take away their originality and creativity and makethem all sound the same.

      I disagree with this. I think a template is just used to organize your writing, and you can still add your own creativity.

    1. There are multiple degrees/levels of communication that any one person will run into within every day of their lives. First, and most importantly, is intrapersonal communication. Intrapersonal communication is a broad concept of communicative phenoms that occur within the individual mind. For many, it can resemble traditonal forms of external communication where a "voice" is acting as a guide to understanding and internalizing the world around us. Intrapersonal communication is hard to conceptualize, and can vary due to biological factors effecting each individuals brains to create unique mental environments. Interpersonal communication, which is the next most intimate form of communication, is when two people exchange messages or share a dialogue. This only occurs with one other person, as the dynamic within a conversation completely changes on a psychological level when more people are there. Then there are multiple interactions of group communication, going from small, to public settings, and larger. All of these, albeit intrapersonal, can be done through verbal, nonverbal, and mediated communication.

    1. Communication Competence refers to the values that differentiate successful, and non successful speakers. it involves a balance of both appropriate and effective communication, where omitting one or the other characteristics could damage peoples perceptions of your communication skills. Gauging these aspects to tailor to certain people and situations is the most effective strategy; communication that is successful in one context may go awfully in another dependent on culture, personal morals of your listener, etc. The way you successfully communicate with a child would not bode well if used during a college conference.

      Although general applications of communication vary; individuals who have a degree of communication competence generally share similar personal values and skills that help achieve greater communication. Skillfullness, or the ability to take note of and work around/correctly use situational cues to approach a conversation the best they can, is one of these characteristics. The ability to work and adapt under stressful and pressured situations is another important skill to a competent communicator. Having a general idea of possible sources of error, and being able to switch on the fly to make light of those failed situations can be just as important as having a line of communication go exactly as planned. Involvement and understanding the audience tend to go hand in hand, where involvement ties into persuasiveness and excitability of the audience, and understanding is more of an emotional tie-in that creates a deeper, empathetic bond between speaker and audience to tap into their feelings to attempt to seem as genuine and "human" as possible. The last two characteristics, cognitive complexity and self-monitoring, both are skills that typically take practice and a lot of inward thinking to achieve. Cognitive complexity means saying the same thing in different ways. It can either mean changing verbiage to different synonyms, or completely altering a sentence while still maintaining the original meaning. Providing different way to comprehend the same message opens a wider range of people to interact and find your message valuable. Self Monitoring is the hardest of these characteristics to get, as it means turning inwards to focus on your behaviors and manipulate said behavior for your advantage. This can mean having pre-meditated points of conversation to follow, being very aware of the flow of the conversation, having a "meta" sense of your self and paying attention to things like body language, etc.

    1. Communication Is Symbolic/Arbitrary * symbols, which are marks/objects that represent something else by association, are something that are taught and can be highly subjective depending on multiple aspects. words are visual symbols, and thus can have major forms of differential meanings. Meaning can change from contextual changes, cultural changes, physical body language, etc. Symbols are arbitrary; there is no reason why dog means the large quadrapedal canine creature. You can change the symbol and the true nature would not be affected.

      Communication Is Shared Meaning * Symbols many be "meaningless" in a conceptual and disconnected sense, but they carry heavy meaning when individuals have an agreed sense and deliberate identity to it. Culture is a major form of how important group consensus ties to meaning both linguistically and socially. Beyond culture a major part of communication deals with experiences from an abstract intimate sense of self. Even members of the same culture will have different perceptions of an experience, which can make sharing difficult. human interpretation lends to answers objectively "correct" in one persons mind, but false in another. These are connotative definitions vs denotative definitions.

      Communication Involves Intentionality

      • we are in a constant state of communication, whether intended or not, but verbal communication almost always comes with a premediate sense of conviction and intention. Direct intention towards a shared topic makes communication more effective. Body language, is inversely related in that many times it can be an unconscious decision without intention.

      Dimensions of Communication

      • there are dimensions, or levels of interpretation during communication. Relational dimension describes how different relationships allow for specific tones, like friendship, cordial business, etc, and using specific tones for wrong situations could be seen as inappropriate. without having a clear understanding of the relationship you have with a person could make the reception of a message clouded or confusing. Content dimension refers to explicit information and the wordage used to convey a certain message.

      Communication Is a Process

      • communication is ongoing and dynamic, and even if a relationship with an individual start at one level of communication can mean it cant grow to be a "deeper" level where you can communicate more freely. Think of inside jokes.

      Communication Is Culturally Determined

      • Culture is learned and alters our perceptions of the world and what is considered "normal". Religion is a major aspect of culture that defines morality, values, etc. These perceptions are hard to pinpoint until interacting with someone who doesn't share those values.

      Communication Occurs in a Context

      • external forces are a major influence in how we interact/commun. yelling out "fire!" at a movie theatre vs yelling that as a lyric at a concert carry two very context dependent results.

    1. One farm bought, one house built,one home sweetly and intelligently kept, one man who isthe largest tax payer or has the largest bank account, oneschool or church maintained, one factory runningsuccessfully, one truck garden protably cultivated, onepatient cured by a Negro doctor, one sermon wellpreached, one oce well lled, one life cleanly lived–these will tell more in our favor than all the abstracteloquence that can be summoned to plead our cause.

      Washington again asserts the value of the middle and upper class, of land and business owners, over the value of the working class, and yet he doesn't grasp the almost complete lack of social mobility within the capitalist system.

    2. who will prove by actual resultstheir value to the community, I cannot but believe, I say,that this will constitute a solution to many of the presentpolitical and social diculties.

      While I understand that Washington could not see the future, and was perhaps simply being optimistic, he was wrong. No matter how strong capitalism is in influencing your respectability within society, it will never be enough to overcome racism as racism does not view things rationally. Furthermore, these industrial jobs are now looked down upon and any attempt by African-Americans to move into more respected jobs has faced resistance from upper class whites, largely due to their attempt to keep wealth concentrated within the hands of the 1% but also due to either conscious or subconscious racial biases about the ability of black people to work in jobs that are not trades.

    3. The home which she would then havebeen able to nd by the results of her work would haveenabled her to help her children to take a still moreresponsible position in life.

      Aka, since women are capable of having children they should forgo formal education in favor of housework so that they may one day better take care of their children who can then attempt to move up the socioeconomic ladder.

    4. I would set no limits to the attainments of the Negro inarts, in letters or statesmanship, but I believe the surestway to reach those ends is by laying the foundation in thelittle things of life that lie immediately about one’s door. Iplead for industrial education and development for theNegro not because I want to cramp him, but because Iwant to free him. I want to see him enter the all-powerfulbusiness and commercial world.

      Here Washington encourages readers to seek only the smallest amount of success and approval they can from the system in which they live, that they should not seek to change an unjust system but rather adapt to it and take the crumbs that are offered to them with nothing more than a "thank you."

    5. And just the same with theprofessional class which the race needs and must have, Iwould say give the men and women of that class, too, thetraining which will best t them to perform in the mostsuccessful manner the service which the race demands.

      He seems to view the status of a race of people as equivalent to how much work and capitol said race can contribute to the economy.

      "Internalized capitalism is this idea that our self-worth is directly linked to our productivity." - Professor Anders Hayden of Dalhousie University

    6. Without industrial development there can be nowealth; without wealth there can be no leisure; withoutleisure no opportunity for thoughtful reection and thecultivation of the higher arts.”

      He repeatedly seems to assert the idea that due to their current state in the economy at the time of this writing, black people should continue to work in jobs they hate in order to hopefully receive some semblance of relevance and respect in the capitalist system as controlled by middle and upper class whites. Here he claims that black people of the working class should not take time for themselves, should not focus on anything outside of work, and should not attempt to elevate their socioeconomic status. He views time off, rest, and activities outside of work as something that only the upper class should seek, and that black people of his day should continue to work lower paying jobs so that their future descendants may one day be a part of this oppressive upper class. All I see here is an awful case of internalized and externalized capitalism that seeks to further oppress people for things that are outside of their control.

    7. It is discouraging to nd agirl who can tell you the geographical location of anycountry on the globe and who does not know where toplace the dishes upon a common dinner table. It isdiscouraging to nd a woman who knows much abouttheoretical chemistry, and who cannot properly wash andiron a shirt.

      While practical life skills are important, I can't help but notice how long he goes on about his disappointment in black women for receiving liberal arts educations in comparison to how long he goes on about his disappointment in black men for the same.

    8. I think should be the policy of all industrial schools–ttingstudents for occupations which would be open to them intheir home communities.

      Students should not be expected to stay in their home communities, it should be a choice they get to make.

    9. Under these circumstances we cannot be surprised if shedoes not fulll the expectations made for her.

      Girls should not be expected to do domestic work, and people should not be disappointed if they cannot do it. Is this also expected of men? The answer is no.

    10. We began teaching wheelwrighting and blacksmithing ina small way to the men, and laundry work, cooking andsewing and housekeeping to the young women.

      Why are the domestic classes only offered to the women? I feel as though men and women could have benefitted from all of the classes the Institute had to offer, not just the ones that matched the stereotypical gender roles.

    11. Ours is anagricultural population. The school must be broughtmore closely to the soil.

      This is starting to sound like he wants the aspects of heavy agriculture work in slavery to be brought back. Does he just mean that there is a need for farmers in the area?

    12. districts and must and should continue to live there

      I believe that people don't always have to do what will make them best off, they should be free to pursue their passions/what they want to do in life.

      (It won't allow me to highlight the other part of the sentence I wanted to use for my annotation)

    13. We began teaching wheelwrighting and blacksmithing ina small way to the men, and laundry work, cooking andsewing and housekeeping to the young women.

      These are all jobs necessary for a successful society, but I do not think it should have been split by gender. Both genders could have benefited from the classes offered.

    14. I would set no limits to the attainments of the Negro inarts, in letters or statesmanship,

      Limits should not be placed on people because of their race.

    15. Our knowledge mustbe harnessed to the things of real life

      I do not think our knowledge should just be limited to the things of real life. I think that you should learn, ask questions and think outside of the box.

    16. It is discouraging to nd agirl who can tell you the geographical location of anycountry on the globe and who does not know where toplace the dishes upon a common dinner table. It isdiscouraging to nd a woman who knows much abouttheoretical chemistry, and who cannot properly wash andiron a shirt.

      Again, it should not be discouraging for women to break outside of the stereotypical gender roles box.

    17. How often have Ibeen discouraged as I have gone through the South, andinto the homes of the people of my race, and have foundwomen who could converse intelligently upon abstrusesubjects, and yet could not tell how to improve thecondition of the poorly cooked and still more poorlyserved bread and meat

      I do not think that discouraged is the right word choice. It should not be found as discouraging that women have skills outside of the typical gender roles such as cooking and cleaning.

    1. Because many of the theories deal with issues of power, students on the margin for particular reasons--ethnicity, class, ability--;ire often more receptive to the basic ideological premises of these theories than are their more privileged peers, who sometimes respond to theories such as gender and class as using the master's tools to dismantle the tnaster's house.

      This is a really awesome thought and it makes a lot of sense to me. In general, I really dislike when certain texts or concepts are left out of non-honors/AP curricula because I think it's dismissive of students' abilities. At my current student teaching placement Romeo & Juliet is being significantly "dumbed down", and as an educator and lover of Shakespeare it's making me very sad. :(
