Single Spaced, NO TITLE PAGE; Write a synthesis that explains why and how rumors spread. In your discussion, refer to the theories of Goleman, Knapp, DiFonzo, and Singal. Use any of the example rumors treated in this chapter (as well as the stolen kidney case in the “Analysis” chapter, pp. 188–194) to support your discussion. I selected this activity because they all have ideas of how and why rumors spread.
