The purpose of this assignment is for students to diagram and demonstrate their understanding of the organizational networks that are around them. If you are not currently part of an organization, you may use a former organization that you were a part of for this assignment.
- Students will be diagram a network they have been a part of, according to Chapter 12 of the Richmond textbook. Your diagrams will differ in content based on the number of networks you belong to.
- You will also list the channels of communication that are used with each network and label the diagram accordingly.
- Students may draw this diagram by hand or use a graphic program or word processing program (Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, etc.) to prepare one, 8½ X 11 inch diagram. Depending on the number of networks you show, you may have more than one network on your sheet.
- Students will then attach a two-page summary, typed in Microsoft Word (formatted in the APA style) of their networks that offers a brief description of each network, making sure to link the concept of their network(s) to ideas from the textbook. (WLO 2)
