1. What is an implication, in general? (see your lecture notes)
2. Describe a message you encountered recently and list two implications of that message.
3. Use the Tubbs communication model (Figure 1.1) found in chapter 1, page 9 of Tubbs’ Human Communication in your custom text to analyze one of the message implications identified in point 2, above.
Scoring (total points possible are 0 to 50)
The following are worth 5 points each if the student has included them; 0 points for not including them (these are all or none point values: the only possible scores are 0 or 5 for each item):
1) at least 500 words total (not per question) (0 or 5 points)
2) personal reflection/argument has been humanized (0 or 5 points)
3) examples (0 or 5 points)

1) explaining what an implication is, in general (0 to 5 points)
2) describing a message and two implications of that message (0 to 10 points)
3) analyzing a message implication using the Tubbs communication model (0 to 15 points)
