Just like last time, you will submit your drafts here, share with colleagues to complete Peer Revision, and meet with me to get responses and feedback for the Feedback Feedback assignment. Until you meet with me, you do NOT have credit for completing ANY part of the module. As with all portfolio papers, you’ll submit it again at the end of the term for evaluation and application to your final grade.

This assignment asks you to do a lot, but if you only focus on one thing make it the community TEXTS – this class is all about text and its composition, after all! To that end, check out the FAQs that I’ve collected that may help clarify things. If you have one that you feel should be added, let me know!


Question >> Tyler’s Response

Do we find these articles online? >> You can for sure, but not necessarily. They can come from literally anywhere – something you already physically have in your possession, something that’s been sent to you, something that “lives” at work, something you got from a course canvas page, something a boss or teacher has given you, etc.

Do they have to be from a specific source or website? >> Nope! They can come from literally anywhere.

How long do these articles have to be? >> There are no requirements! It could be as brief as a text message (though that might be hard to analyze – I’m sure it could be done, though) or as long as a dissertation. Whatever works for YOUR community!

For example one of the communities I picked was the [thing I’m studying/student organization I’m involved with] offered at [college]; does the actual website of this community count as an article? >> Definitely! Any other materials that are associated would work as well (handouts, emails, recruitment literature, etc.). It can literally be ANYTHING that your community uses. The thing to watch out for are descriptions from or for outsiders. We want real, actual materials that your group uses to communicate with each other – what Swales would call those “mechanisms of intercommunication” (Swales 221).

Are both articles about one of the chosen discourse community or one article for each of the two chosen community? >> The latter – one article for each community so you can eventually do some comparative analysis.
