Discussions are fundamental to shared learning, so please be sure to participate early and often! After you have completed the Reading, and without reviewing your classmate’s responses, post your initial response to the following Discussion. Your post should be at least 200–250 words in length and should extend the discussion of the group supported by your course materials and/or other appropriate resources.
Consider the eight principals for communication effectiveness, starting on page 25 of your textbook:

Principle 4: People Construct Meanings in Interpersonal Communication
Principle 5: Metacommunication Affects Meanings
Principle 6: Interpersonal Communication Develops and Sustains Relationships
Principle 7: Interpersonal Communication Is Not a Panacea
