These 7 C’s of Communication have been explained in much detail for those who have been studying Communication. While working with students on the concept of essentials of effective communication, I felt that there is a set of three, which seems to work for me when it comes to delivering a successful and sustained communication. The same has worked in the perfect way for those who have mentored me. It is said that ‘Communication is what it does.’ And it should do exactly what we call 'effective'.

The Lessons of 1704
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

In The Lessons of 1704, students learn the basic skills needed to do research and to "read" primary and secondary sources, to see what they can reveal about the cultural characteristics and attitudes of the English, French, and Native Americans in the Deerfield area in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. At the same time, they learn about the attitudes and behaviors of these three groups toward one another. Then, they use what they have learned to analyze the 1704 attack on Deerfield and the various events that led up to it. Their study of cultures and attitudes not only helps them understand how Queen Anne's War affected the peoples of the Deerfield area, but also it helps them understand why conflicts happen and how they can escalate. The unit then leads students through an analysis of a wide variety of "accounts" of the attack, from contemporary writings, to an early 20th century movie, to late 20th century "action figures." These "accounts" all reflect a distinct point of view, which students learn to "read" and understand. Throughout, the unit encourages students to question motives and attitudes before reaching conclusions about the causes and effects of an important event in American history.
