The Investigating Language Practices Group Assignment asks you to continue your exploration of language and literacy by investigating how language is used in a specific academic discipline or profession. Working with two or three other classmates, you will select an academic discipline or profession to investigate (for instance, electrical engineering, exercise physiology, real estate, or basketball coaching). You will collect example texts from members of that discipline or profession, interview members of the discipline or profession, and create a report about how members of that discipline or profession use language to communicate with each other.
