Preface
This Instructor’s Manual is designed as a pedagogical aid for instructors using the text
Organizational
Communication: Balancing Creativity and Constraint, eighth edition. This manual is
intended to create
an active learning atmosphere within the classroom. Active learning is based on
the idea that students take
away more from an environment in which they have been participants in
exercises and discussions. The
suggestions and ideas in this manual facilitate the teaching process
by providing new instructors with a
starting point and experienced instructors with some new ideas.
We have continued to receive an overwhelmingly positive response to the changes made in the
previous two editions of the Instructor’s Manual; therefore, we have decided to preserve many of
the changes
that we added to the sixth and seventh editions while still adding new material and
suggestions to keep the
resource fresh. The Classroom Media Resources and Online Resources have
been updated to reflect new
content, while still retaining some of our favorite suggestions from the
sixth and seventh editions. For example, we continue to suggest the Ocean’s Eleven movie franchise
as a top resource for teaching systems theory, primarily because Marianne’s students repeatedly
identify watching this film series as the moment they finally “get it.” You
may show short clips from
these Media Resources or the movie and television shows in their entirety. The
clips were chosen
based on their ability to exemplify the ideas in the chapters and to spark conversations
about
those concepts. Additionally, the Online Resources have been checked and verified to ensure that
Web links and URLs are working at the time of publication.
You can still access supplemental materials and the Test Bank via the Web, and those materials
have
been updated to reflect the changes in the eighth edition. You can receive these materials as well
as additional multiple-choice, true/false, short answer, and essay questions by contacting your local
Bedford/St.
Martin’s representative or by visiting the book’s catalog page at
http://www.bedfordstmartins.com/orgcomm
/catalog.
This Instructor’s Manual follows a fairly standard format. Initially, it provides some sample
syllabi
and general assignment ideas. Next, each chapter contains a summary, teaching goals, teaching
challenges,
exercises and assignments, media resources, online resources, essay and discussion
questions, key terms,
and lecture notes. Finally, Appendix A provides an organizational
communication questionnaire that may
be helpful to use on the first day of class. Appendix B
includes supplemental material for an exercise in
Chapter 6. Appendix C offers case studies from
previous editions that can be used inside or outside of
class.
Some of the ideas and activities in this Instructor’s Manual come to you by way of Drs.
Kami
Kosenko, Karen Myers, Clifton Scott, Sarah Tracy, and Kurt Lindemann, as well as the three
authors of
Organizational Communication themselves. I would like to thank all of them for their
cooperation and assistance. I would also like to thank Raina Massand, the author of the fourth-edition
Instructor’s Manual, for
writing several excellent exercises and activities, some of which remain a
key part of the eighth-edition
manual. If you have any questions about the Instructor’s Manual, or
v!
would like to share your ideas, suggestions, additions, or improvements, please feel free to e-mail me

CREATING A PRODUCTIVE CLASSROOM ENVIRONMENT
!
An organizational communication course is an interesting opportunity to implement a more
businesslike
environment in the classroom, especially since students are learning about how to
organize. It might be
useful to explain to students that the class will be conducted within an
organizational framework. This
means that there will be some individual assignments, but there will
also be a fair amount of group or team
interaction. Placing students in teams allows them to
experience and explore many of the concepts from
the text. It is important to emphasize that, just
as in a work team within an organization, every member
must be committed to doing his or her fair
share of the work.

SUGGESTED COURSE ASSIGNMENTS AND DESCRIPTIONS
!
The following are some suggestions for course assignments. As an instructor, you will need to decide
how
much time you have and choose your assignments accordingly. For example, if you are
teaching a five-week summer-session course, you probably won’t have time for students to perform
an in-depth organizational study, so you might want to substitute it with the cultural comparison
project or in-class group assignments. Personal experience papers could substitute for midterm and
final exams.
!
!
Class Projects
!
In-depth organizational study
!
Over the course of the semester, your group will work together to understand a locally headquartered
business and its internal and external communication. Specifically, you will follow these steps:
!
Part I: Conduct an analysis of the company’s external communication and image.
Part II: Conduct an analysis of the company’s internal communication through interviews
and
observation.
!
Combine the two sections, and write an introduction and conclusion.
xii!
!
Every member of a group will receive the same grade. Therefore, each group will design a “group
grade
contract, which is a binding document outlining expectations for participation, conditions for
success, and
conditions for point reduction or elimination from credit. (Examples: The workload will be
shared equally by
all members. Points will be deducted for absence or substandard work. Participation
in decision making will
include research, idea generation, and evaluation by all involved.) Each member
will sign this contract.
!
Cultural comparison project
!
You and a partner should choose two competing organizations (e.g., Peet’s Coffee and Starbucks or
Target
and Walmart). Each of you should collect data from one of the two organizations. Data might
include interviews and observations, texts, advertisements, general environmental scans, Internet
materials, and pictures. (Note: It is wise to obtain permission from a supervisor or manager before
conducting interviews or
taking pictures.) Once the data have been collected, you should meet to
compare and contrast the two
competing organizations. Using the concepts from either Chapter 5 or
Chapter 10, you should analyze how
each organization crafts its culture or how each organization
strategically positions its product or service.
The cultural comparison project is particularly unique
because it does NOT ask you to report your findings
in a paper. Rather, you should construct a
PowerPoint storyboard that compares and contrasts the two organizations. It is important to note
that the final product is a storyboard, NOT a presentation; therefore,
you will probably include
more text and pictures on an individual slide than you might in a traditional
PowerPoint
presentation. The PowerPoint storyboard should have a background, written text that demonstrates
the comparisons and contrasts between the organizations, and pictures and graphics that illustrate
the text.
xiii!
Teaching through self-directed teams
!
During the second half of the semester, you will participate in a self-directed team with the
responsibility
of teaching a thirty-minute portion of class. You will be given very broad guidelines,
but the responsibility
will be yours to coordinate with other groups in order to divide up the time and
the subjects to be covered.
Your instructor will serve as an organizational consultant to answer
questions and offer suggestions, but
the ultimate decisions are left to the groups.
!
Discussion leaders
!
You and a partner will be responsible for leading discussions for each chapter. As a basis for your
discussions, you can use the questions at the end of each text chapter.
!
New directions in organizational communication discussion
!
It is important for advanced students to know the resources that are available to them. A useful
resource for
staying current on organizational communication and the changing world of work is
Management Communication Quarterly, a peer-reviewed journal that features cross-disciplinary
research. Your job is to peruse
the two most recent volumes (i.e., eight issues) available at the time of
the course. Find the article that interests you most, read it, and be prepared to talk about it in a
discussion about new directions and trends in
organizational communication. Your grade will be
based on finding an appropriate article and the contributions that you make to the in-class discussion.
!
!
Personal Experience Papers
!
Organizational interview
!
Purpose: This exercise will provide you with an opportunity to articulatethrough written
exampleshow the material you are reading applies to your work experiences.
Process: Choose one or more concepts from class and think about how they apply to your own
working experience. Next, choose someone you think is successful in business and interview that
person about the
concepts you have chosen. Your paper should make a persuasive argument that
articulates how both you
and your interviewee interpret the material.
!
Mini-ethnography
!
Purpose: This paper will give you the opportunity both to apply the cultural perspective to your own
xiv!
experience and to gain insight into the meaningful social practices of a chosen organization.
Process: You will be performing a mini-ethnography. Remember, an ethnography involves the
study of
culture. There are two parts to ethnographic research: the doing and the writing.
!
1.
The doing. Choose an organization that you will be able to gain access to. Some suggestions
are a
restaurant, a public library, the department of motor vehicles, an emergency room, or
the organization
where you work. Next, become a cultural detective. Look for clues. Do the
employees use any kind of
jargon? How do they decorate their work space? Do they use
personal items from home? Cartoons on
the wall? Signs or other materials? Take rigorous
notes, and ask questions to gain others’
interpretations. Plan to spend a significant amount of
time at your research site. The time will vary, but
allow for at least four to six hours of
observation.
!
2.
The writing. Organize your notes. Due to the scope of the paper, you will have to narrow
your focus
to two or three well-developed aspects of the organizational culture. Refer to
your text to review the
different ways of writing an ethnography.
