Assignment: 98-99
Text Analysis Report

In this unit, we will extend these ideas, exploring how various communities or groups of people approach a particular subject. We will examine some of the ways that context affects our reading of texts. And we will practice close analysis, learning how this activity can reveal not only the different language conventions of particular discourse communities but also the values and assumptions underlying those conventions. We will apply what we practice in this unit to our primary task in the next unit: writing an argument that is directed to a specific audience, based upon our understanding of the academic conversation surrounding a particular topic.
