I need these questions answered in about 200 words each and with individual references on each one.

1. What is the difference between an “honor-oriented society” and a “justice-oriented society” and how do these value differences get expressed in communication? How do different communication values in these societies influence communication about the gospel?

2. What is the difference between masculine and feminine cultures? Chapter 13 in your textbook mentions that “gender differences can and often do result in painful gender disparities.” Discuss one example of this that stands out to you from the chapter.

3. How does your cultural background affect how you handle conflict? How might the Christian worldview as a “cultural background” influence the way someone might handle conflict? What suggestions do you find helpful from intercultural communication researchers? Cite any sources used.

4. Read sidebar 17.4 in Chapter 17 of your textbook. After reading, respond the following reflection prompts: Identify which of the above areas you would consider an area of strength for you. Do you think it would still be a strength in a cross-cultural setting? Why or why not? Choose one of the items above that you find most difficult and explain what it might take for you personally to grow in this area.

5. Charles Kraft has identified several myths (some of which are outlined in sidebar 18.1 of Chapter 18 in your textbook) about the communication of the gospel (for the full list, see Kraft 1991a, 35–54; note also the critique and notations in Hesselgrave and Rommen 1989, 193–96). As you read through the list, can you identify any that you have believed? If you think it is not a myth, how would you respond?

6. Chapter 18 describes different evangelistic methods based on assumptions about the conversion process as well as communicative elements of cultures that shape decision-making responses to the sharing of the gospel. What do you think about these methods? Do you think one is better than the others? Do you think they all have some merits and some drawbacks? Explain, analyzing specific elements of the methods as you compare them.

Critical Analysis of a Popular Music Artist, their Work and its Socio-Cultural Meaning

 Critical analysis of a popular music artist, their work and its socio-cultural meaning.

Research assignment

Task Description:

Building on earlier readings, and drawing from Modules 6-11, you are required to research, critically analyse and discuss the socio-cultural significance of a chosen popular music artist from the 1950s to early 21st century (i.e. now). Your written assignment will demonstrate your understanding of the course ideas by applying them to the chosen artist. This should work in two ways: you will use the course ideas to develop a critical understanding of your chosen artist, and you will use the story of your chosen artist to illustrate and explore the course ideas.

Learning Outcomes: 

2.  Explore and analyse modes of mass production, mediatisation and global culture in enabling interactions with popular music.

3.  Critically apply knowledge of popular music to the evaluation of its socio-cultural meaning as this has evolved since the 1950s.

Length: 2000 words max. Weighting: 60%

Speaking On Special Occasions

Imagine that, over the weekend, you attended a coworker’s birthday party. During the birthday celebration, your coworker delivered speech. Which one of the aspects of the speech most appealed to you?

  • Introduction and conclusion.
  • Use of direct quotes.

Provide a thorough explanation for your choice. The following is your coworker’s speech.

“I would like to first start by thanking my family, friends, and colleagues who have honored me with their presence today. Over the years, I have learned that there is no specific formula for a long and prosperous life. However, I will share a few of the principles I live by and have found valuable.

  • “Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.” —Winston S. Churchill (1)
  • “To be gritty is to keep putting one foot in front of the other. To be gritty is to hold fast to an interesting and purposeful goal. To be gritty is to invest, day after week after year, in challenging practice. To be gritty is to fall down seven times, and rise eight.” —Angela Lee Duckworth (2)
  • “Always be nice to the people you meet on your way up in life as you may meet them again on the way down.” —Jimmy Durante (3)
  • “When you come to a fork in the road, take it!” —Yogi Berra (4)

“I hope these words of wisdom help you create lives filled with peace, love, and joy. Thank you all for coming to celebrate my special day, and I look forward to our next celebration!”

Sex Trafficking

No country is immune from sex trafficking, and the United States has a significant trafficking problem that potentially extends into every state and county. Women and children everywhere—even in the heart of America’s heartland—are being exploited. Yes, even in the U.S. this evil is increasing and destroying lives, despite a proliferation of federal and state anti-trafficking laws, awareness campaigns, law enforcement training programs, activism, growing media coverage, and even Hollywood films on the subject.

Why are traffickers growing bolder and richer? Why are the numbers of victims ever increasing? Who is ultimately responsible? Where do you think the greatest promise for combatting human trafficking comes from (NGOs, legislation, enforcement, etc.)

Essay Discussion 1

To answer these topics completely, it takes a minimum of 350 words. Use the topic question and the scoring rubric to see if your draft responds fully to all parts of the question. A complete thoughtful answer is more important than word count.

⁞ Topic for your Essay:

You try to live strictly by the moral rules contained in your religion’s moral code. The two most important rules are “Be merciful” (don’t give people what they deserve) and “Be just” (give people exactly what they deserve). Now suppose a man is arrested for stealing food from your house, and the police leave it up to you whether he should be prosecuted for his crime or set free. Should you be merciful and set him free, or be just and make sure he is appropriately punished? How do you resolve this conflict of rules? Can your moral code resolve it? To what moral principles or theories do you appeal?
