Context Analysis Paper (Modified from Thomas

BackBack to Text Analysis Assignments

This is the last in the series of assignments based on text analysis. In this assignment, we will practice once again the analytical skills we have been honing up to this point. This time, however, we are narrowing our focus to the contexts in which texts are produced and received. The goals of this paper include the following:

Purpose of the paper: To explore how differences in context (purpose/audience) affect a writer's presentation of a subject

Audience: Instructor and classmates as an academic audience. You can assume we have read the texts but will expect specific examples from them to support your assertions. You will also be demonstrating your knowledge, understanding and analysis of the texts to your instructor.
