Homework Help: Assertive Communication

Posted by John on Thursday, September 17, 2009 at 8:07pm.

Roleplay assignment.

Using the scenarios provided or make up your own, develop a script that shows your understanding of Assertive Communication style.

You must include the victim and perpetrator role plus one or more other(s) (i.e. apathetic bystander, mediator, instigator etcÖ)

Keep in mind that you want to RESOLVE the conflict in a peaceful manner using some of the strategies we have learned in class (i.e. active listening, assertive communication)

Your script MUST sound realistic - this means your characters must show the conflict in their speech and may not simply resolve the conflict in by agreeing to stop fighting. Also, although real-life involves colourful language, gratuitous (repeated or unnecessary) use of swearing will result in a lowered mark.
My Script:

Scenario:Young man meets his friend and wants to got to McDonalds. She wants to go elsewhere.

Bob was in Math class, doodling, and waiting for the bell to signal lunchtime. The bell rang 2 minutes later. He put his books in his bag and headed out. He meets his friend Susan at the parking lot.

Bob: Hey Susan. How are you?

Susan: Iím fine, thank you. And how are you?

Bob: Iím really hungry. Do you want to go to McDonalds?

Susan: Do we have to go to McDonalds?

Bob: Well, thereís Burger King?

Susan: mmmmmÖ.I donít know.

Bob: Pizza Hut?

Susan: Uhg, donít like pizza.

Bob: Why donít you say where youíd like to go/want to go?

Susan: Well, Iím not really bothered.

Bob: Well, thereís Subway?

Susan: Well that would be the healthier option.

Bob: Okay, Iím going to McDonalds because Iíd really like a burger from there. And I would like you to join me, but if you would like to go to Subway you can go there.

Susan: Fine.

Can someone check my script and give some constructive criticism if you can. And tell me if I'm missing anything that is required.

Did I meet the requirements? Because I don't know if I've missed anything or not.

Also, is it a good script? And realistic.
Thank you very much.
