3. Third, watch the video below. Click the image to start. The video will open in a pop-up window. The discussion board is NOT based upon this video. I have simply included the video for you to watch because so many people believe they are good multitaskers, when in fact, they are not. 

4. Follow the instructions and prompts given in the instructions and post two paragraphs. Additionally, respond to at least one of your classmates. Your two paragraphs and your response post will be graded.

5. Read Chapter 5. Read the Chapter 5 Discussion Board prompt and write your response. You must submit your own post before you may see any other student’s post. When  in the discussion board, start by clicking “Create Thread.”  Your response to a classmate will be graded.

Disc 2: Chptr 5 DB and Reply to a ClassmateDisc 2: Chptr 5 DB and Reply to a Classmate

In the video above, the reporter showed how multi-tasking leads to poor listening. According to your textbook, this message overload, the bombardment of texts, emails, face-to-face messages often means that while we are able to function and respond, we don’t always do so appropriately, we tend to forget what we were doing, or feel rushed and distracted.

Your Original Paragraph (25 points)

Write about a specific time when you or someone you know engaged in poor listening. Your example must involve ADULTS only. Describe the situation and then label what you think was the Faulty Listening Behavior at play. Choose a term from pages 132-33 of your book under the subsection heading “Faulty Listening Behaviors.” (There are seven terms from which to choose). Underline, highlight, bold, italicize or CAPITALIZE your choice so that it is visually apparent which faulty listening behavior you are describing in your scenario. 

Your Reply to a Classmate Paragraph (25 points)

Read one of your classmate’s posts about a time they experienced a faulty listening behavior. Analyze their story and determine what you think was the Reason for Poor Listening. Choose a term from pages 129-132 under the heading “Reasons for Poor Listening” (there are 9 terms from which to choose). Underline, highlight, bold, italicize or CAPITALIZE your choice so that it is visually apparent which reason you chose. If applicable, give them advice on what you think could have been done differently. See the example for help.
