Understanding Theory Scope, Communications Discussion Post

Need help with my Communications question – I’m studying for my class.

How does this model reflect the communication context of organizations and small groups? Would this model be equally effective applied to other communication contexts?

Next, look back at the model of communication you suggested in your very first discussion post. Compare it to this model of CCD. How did your first model reflect a particular communication context, perhaps without you even realizing it did?

Finally, discuss the idea of theories and models having “scopes.” Abstractly, a scope refers to the boundaries that delineate the area of influence for a particular theory. What scope did your initial model apply to? Is a scope the same as a communication context? How so, or how not? Is the scope of CCD big, or small? How does the size of a theory’s scope impact is usefulness (consider the text book’s tests for evaluating a theory)?
