COM 523 Communication in Personal Relationships
Weeks Two - Six: Rethinking Relationships
For these four weeks, we will be applying what we learn in Rethinking Relationships to the characters in "Why Did I Get Married?"
As you read the chapters (two per week), consider and post in your group discussion forums (may want to consider creating a thread for each couple):
Are any ideas/concepts in this chapter relevant to any particular couple in the movie?
If so, which ones, who and why?
What do we learn and/or what insights do we gain from considering the couple from this particular perspective?
Is this a useful perspective?
At the end of the four weeks, you should, as a group, synthesize what you have learned about each couple (this should be a substantial analysis) and determine which concepts you found to be the most useful and why. This will be posted on the class discussion forum by Wednesday, September 23 at noon.
