COMM 220: Communication and Social Relationships (O'Connor)

This guide is dedicated to the Relationships in Pop Culture and Scholarship Group Annotated Bib/Research/Poster Assignment.

Introduction

Welcome!  You've reached the COMM 220: Communication and Social Relationships (O'Connor) course guide dedicated to the Relationships in Pop Culture and Scholarship Group Annotated Bib/Research/Poster Assignment.  This guide will provide you with resources and strategies to support your upcoming research assignment.

Assignment Requirements

To summarize, you will need:

  • Three (3) secondary / popular sources
  • Four (4) academic / primary sources
  • To cite your sources in APA style (including annotations)

Also note that since you will be required to create a one-page clickable poster for your assignment, you may want to be aware of some of the computer labs on campus.  Computer labs in the Olin Center (including the EDGE Center on the first floor which has computers available with specialized software like Photoshop) and the Tredway Library (which has a number of lab computers and group study spaces) are open seven days a week when school is in session and have both Windows and Apple OS machines.  You might also use Google Slides to create a unique and interactive poster (see this helpful video from Rochford on Demand).
