Write a five- to six-page essay that profiles the discourse community you have chosen to research. It must include at least five sources (one primary (i.e., interview) and four secondary). Your essay needs to include a thesis that makes a claim about the community you researched. Here are some ideas: It could focus on the value of future membership in this community (e.g., how membership leads to a life of significance and worth), or barriers to inclusion in this community (e.g., challenges of moving from outsider to insider).
The purpose of this assignment is multifaceted: (1) To develop your understanding of discourse communities by analyzing both explicit and implicit manifestations of culture within a community with which you are unfamiliar. (2) Build upon prior knowledge of primary research to include conducting interviews. (3) Develop active listening skills. (4) Reflect on how inquiry contributes to a life of significance and worth. (5) Reinforce prior knowledge of locating and synthesizing secondary sources.
