2. To help students learn that receivers are coactive participants in the communication process who affectively, cognitively, and/or behaviorally respond to and “co-create” messages.
3. To help students understand that meaning is heavily dependent on one’s experience and the realities their social constructions allow.
4. To help students transfer the communication fundamentals learned from public speaking to all other forms of communication.
