What is a discourse community?
In this assignment, you are going to look at the communication that occurs in one of your discourse communities, the one formed by an interest in your field of study (major, program, or discipline).
How do I learn about the discourse community in my field?
What will you be looking for? You will be looking at the kinds of reading and writing members of the community do; the expectations and rules (conventions) for the communication; the way they communicate with each other online; and other tips that help you understand this group. How will you do this exploration?
Click the first link to go to the university’s catalog. This gives general information about the program. Then move to the research guide for your program. Be sure to look at all the links in the guide. Scroll down the page at each tab.
Once I’ve learned about my field’s discourse community, what do I do with that information?
After you have looked at the catalog description, the research guide, and information in that guide (including an organization or website), complete the following report about the way the people in your program communicate. A template of this report is attached for your convenience. Replace the sample answers with your own words. Save it with a title like this: Smith Robert Report on Communication. Then submit the completed form as an attachment in the assignment link.
