Discourse Community Map

Page history last edited by Randall Monty 11 years, 2 months ago

Using the definition and discussion of a “Discourse Community” provided in class, you will construct a discourse community map that outlines the various discourse communities you belong to and the different literacies needed to be a member. You will need to consider the goals of the specific audiences and how those goals shape communication (oral, visual, written). In other words, this map will be a visual representation of your chosen discourse community, portraying major themes, individuals, ideas, and vocabulary, and demonstrating pertinent connections between these concepts.


You can use web-based application such as Prezi or Bubbl.us, or a computer program such as PowerPoint, or you can draw out your map by hand. In any case, your finished product must be revised, edited, and suitable for academic assessment.


We'll work on this assignment in class on Wednesday (03.21).
