Single Class Activities. Communication educators in all contexts are invited to submit original teaching activities for classroom implementation. Activities may address any communication course, including, for e.g., research methods, technologies, theory, family, gender, health, interpersonal, intercultural, instructional, mass, organizational, public relations, performance, media studies, rhetoric and public speaking, and small group, whether introductory or advanced. Each submission should contain the following components: (1) a brief title; (2) the course(s) for which the activity is intended; (3) the objective(s) or learning outcome(s) for the activity; (4) a brief theoretical rationale for conducting the activity; (5) a description/explanation of the activity, including any preparation/preliminary steps and necessary materials; (6) a debriefing, including typical results; (7) an appraisal of the activity, including any limitations or variations; and (8) references. Single Class submissions should generally contain no more than 2000 words.
Unit Activities. This may entail an original teaching activity that takes place throughout an entire class unit (e.g., a relational communication unit on “Conflict in Relationships”) that spans several days or weeks. A unit activity should follow the same format as the single class activity, and should contain no more than 2500 words.
Semester-long Activities. Original teaching activities that outline a semester-long project or approach to an entire course are also welcome. These manuscripts should follow the same format the single class activity and should generally contain no more than 3000 words.
