Group CommunicationThe purpose of an integrated instructional approach is to improve students' understanding of course concepts both in theory and practice. In this case, this approach prepares students to perform efficaciously as a cohesive group when they tackle this major course activity, Select, Analyze, and Report (SAR). SAR requires students to select a film or television series of their choice that clearly depicts group communication concepts, analyze how the concepts they choose are demonstrated in the film or television series selected, and report their findings during a group presentation at the end of the semester. SAR's purposes are to reinforce the significance of the information and skills students have attained while working on preliminary exercises throughout the semester and to assess students' comprehensive understanding of group communication.
