Length & Format: Your comparison should be four paragraphs for a total of 500-600 words. Upload your assignment as a .doc or .docx file to the assignment folder. Use your last name followed by JA as the file name (e.g. Smith JA).
Task in Brief: Compare four aspects of Tan et al.s Imidacloprid Alters Foraging and Decreases Bee Avoidance of Predators and Olutolas I Aint Sorry: Beyonc, Serena, and Hegemonic Hierarchies in Lemonade to show how each article is tailored to its own academic discourse community.
As weve discussed in class, scholars in the social sciences, natural sciences, and humanities belong to different academic discourse communities, each with its own vocabulary and way of using language. One result of this is that the genre of the scholarly journal article can be divided into subgenres based on the discipline in which it is being used. For example, a typical scholarly journal article in the humanities is very different from one in the natural sciences. The two articles you will compare in this assignment represent these two distinct disciplinary areas and are thus tailored to different discourse communities.
To compare these articles, you will write four paragraphs, each focused on a different aspect:
Organizationhow the authors organize the information and evidence in each article
Vocabulary/languagehow the authors use language, including vocabulary specific to each discourse community
Evidencehow the authors present evidence (such as data, quotations, and sources)
Documentationhow the authors document their sources
For each aspect, you should compare the two articles to illustrate how they are tailored to different discourse communities. For example, why does one article use a numbering system for documenting sources (CSE) while the other uses an author-centered documentation style (MLA)? What specialized vocabulary does each article use, and how does it reflect the knowledge and preferences of each discourse community?
Criteria for Evaluation
Understanding of genre: Selection and explanation of examples demonstrate understanding of each articles genre (natural science article v. humanities article) and that genres conventions.
Understanding of discourse community Explanation of examples demonstrates understanding of how each article is tailored to its discourse community.
Style & editing: Writing is clear and free of distracting errors and typos.
