What have you discovered about perception and perception checking?
As you begin this reflective writing assignment, go back and review the pertinent portions of the reading which will help guide your responses to the following prompts–
Which barrier(s) to self-perception do you think present the most challenge to you and why? What can you do to start to overcome these barriers?
Which barrier(s) to perceiving others do you think present the most challenge to you and why? What can you do to start to overcome these barriers?
Finally, replay a recent communication encounter in which perception checking might have led to a more positive result. What could you have done differently? Then explore which step of perception checking is most challenging to you and why.
As you develop your responses remember to incorporate your personal perspective with what you have discovered within this unit.
Spend some time on this. Remember, reflective writing gives you the opportunity to think deeply about your learning. You’ll want to refer back to portions of the text which have influenced you most, but remember you are not simply restating what the text has said. You want to dig deeper…. to wonder…. and to reflect on what you have realized…. what you have “figured out” so far.
This is your opportunity to connect and share your insights. Focus on providing substance and specifics through a minimum of 15 to 20 sentences for this assignment.
(Remember to review the rubric to see how this assignment will be evaluated.)
