Communication Eveulation Of Interview Directions: You will craft a critical reflection that presents the perspective of someone whose voice is to some extent silenced or muted by a more dominant culture. Successful completion of this assignment will require you to develop an interview guide, gather data by conducting the interview, and write up your results in an interesting that provides your critical reflections. Adhere to the following as you work.
Identify someone whose voice is to some extent silenced, muted, or otherwise unrecognized by a more dominant/powerful culture (e.g., single parents, stay-at-home fathers, domestic abuse victims, religious co-cultural group, stigmatized groups, social/political co-cultural group, those experiencing certain physical limitations/medical conditions).
Develop an interview guide to help you structure the interview. In addition to gathering the basics (e.g., who, what, where, when), this guide should contain plenty of intelligent and well-planned questions that elicit meaningful and richly detailed responses. The best are open-ended questions that invite detailed answers. (e.g., In what way(s) does he/she feel silenced/muted/unable to be fully who he/she is? If he/she felt freer to express him/herself, what would he/she want people to know about him/her? What would he/she like to see changed?) Remember, your goal is to understand and then advocate for this perspective.
Reflect back on your notes and your memory of the interview experience and develop a coherent that accurately captures the perspective of your interviewee AS IF THIS PERSPECTIVE WERE YOUR OWN. In other words, you will write your in first person, as if YOU were the interviewee. Be sure your showcases your understanding of the perspective by making a valid argument for the perspective. IMPORTANT: The idea here is not whether you agree with the perspective (because, of course, you don’t have to agree), but whether you can do justice to the perspective by getting it right from the interviewee’s point of view.
Your response should be interesting to read and adhere to principles of sound writing to include (a) an appropriate introduction, (b) one clear main thesis that lays out the purpose of the assn, (c) preview of the assn main points, (d) well developed main points (based on those previewed) that feature clear and sound arguments, (e) a logical flow of information, and (f) an appropriate conclusion that brings your assn “full circle.”
Minimum page number required is 3 pages. Pages must be numbered. No separate title page is necessary, but do give your assn a title. Add your name and “Perspective Taking assn” only in the upper right corner of the first page.
*******YOU WILL WRITE ABOUT A STAY AT HOME FATHER. THE ATTACHED DOC HAS INFO FROM THE INTERVIEWEE, YOU MUST WRITE THE ASSN ONLY****** Interview Guide
Who: a friend from school
What: Stay at home father, who made the choice to raise his son and quit his job instead of his
wife quitting because she had a higher paying job.
When: (I wrote the responses in 1st Person since it made it easier to take the notes)
1. What made you feel silenced as a stay at home father?
a. I definitely was silenced from my choice since no matter what people didn’t
show me respect, they kept pushing me to go back to my job. If I
did something, like take my son out while my wife worked,
gossip would spread that I was not manly enough. Also everything seemed to
revolve around masculinity and if I didn’t want to speak about my choice it
seemed like nobody would listen. Everyone was so set on a woman being a stay at
home mother, and because this was the stereotype they grew up with, most of the
time they would not listen to my reasoning because they believe that they had
strong reasoning behind their stereotypical belief.
2. Why did you make the decision to be a stay at home father?
a. Me and my wife had good paying jobs, although we can afford a babysitter I
chose to raise my child on my own. I wanted to make sure my son was receiving
enough care and love because of my past experience I wouldn’t want him to go
through what I went through. My goal was to give a healthy and safe
3. What did you do when you got criticism from the male community?
a. I shared my decision with others and often had an odd reaction from everyone.
Most disagreed with my decision because it wasn’t a manly thing to do. At the end
of the day the choice is between me and my wife. What revolved around our
answer was what was best for our family, not what was best for others around us.
4. How did your family/friends react to your choice?
a. My friends always supported any decision I made regardless of what it was about
as long as it was thought through. My family on the other hand had a tough time
taking it in because it wasn’t within cultural norms. In our culture it is usually the
man out to work while the mother stays home with the child.
5. Did you put in any effort to find a babysitter? Why did you not go with that
a. For weeks the thought of a babysitter was on the table, but deep down it felt like
the wrong thing to do. We found many good candidates for our child but doubt
and guilt held us back everytime it was hard to trust anyone to care for our child
the right way. So I made the decision to take care of my child while my wife
works. That way we are guaranteed our child will grow up with love and care.
6. Did you ever voice out your opinion that it’s normal to be a stay at home father?
Would you recommend your choice?
a. Yes, I have tried to explain to the male community that it was definitely a normal
thing to do to be a stay at home father. As the years progress, we should work
towards destroying stereotypes and not embracing them. I would definitely
recommend my choice if that’s what it comes down to, my wife made more
money hence why she stayed at her job and I quit.
7. Did you embrace being a stay at home father? Would you do it again if you had
a. Yes, I embraced being a stay at home father. My child is very close to me, and
trusts me a lot. We’ve built a great bond over the years. Deep down I know I was
able to accomplish my goal of giving my son a healthy non toxic environment,
unlike myself. Yes, I would do it again if I had another child because the outcome
is worth losing my job.
