Write a 8–10-page research-based paper in current APA format that focuses on an interpersonal communication theory. You must choose an interpersonal communication theory such as Social Penetration theory, Uncertainty Reduction theory, Knapp and Staircase Model, etc. But be creative—choose a theory that matters to you and your life.
The paper should be organized with the following:
The first 1–2 pages of the paper must provide a clear explanation of the theory and the theorists who developed the theory.
The body of the paper (4–7ish pages) must provide a literature review (from scholarly communication journals) of how the theory has been used/applied in empirical research studies.
- The final 1–2 pages of the paper must be an analysis of the theory’s strengths and weaknesses as revealed in the literature review.
The paper must include a works cited page with at least 12 references in addition to the course textbook and the Bible. Sources must include books, scholarly journals, and credible internet sources, and they must be scholarly in nature.
Uncertainty Reduction Theory is the theory this paper should written on.
