  • 1. E RS PAP Y 18th IRuly U ay, J QINednesd W
  • 2. JOURNAL How did you decide on the topic that you’re exploring through your inquiry paper? What databases did you search? Did you look at the Works Cited pages of your articles? How did you know that this issue is important to your field? What does exploring this issue help you learn about your major (use your subject headings to help you with this one)? Write 1-2 paragraphs in response to these questions. You don’t have to answer all of them, and you don’t have to answer them in order.
  • 3. PUTTING THINGS TOGETHER1. Open up a new Word document. Save it as “Final Project”2. Open your preliminary genre analysis, your annotated bibliography, and your line of inquiry paper. Minimize them.3. Now get ready to copy and paste stuff from the other documents into your new document. This will be fun!
  • 4. FROM YOUR GENRE ANALYSIS PAPER Copy the introduction and paste it into the new document. It should be something like this:Genres are a way of communicating within a discourse community. These genres are not static but dynamic.According to Amy Devitt “Genres develop, then because they respond appropriately to situations that writersencounter repeatedly. In principle, that is, writers first respond in fitting ways and hence similarly to recurringsituations” (576). These changes cause a need to analyze genres to be able to understand them. In order tosuccessfully join a discourse community one must understand the genres that this community uses. Devitt,Bawarshi and Reiff state “Genre study gives us specific access to the sites of language use that make upcommunities, in all their complexity” (549). Using this knowledge and access that studying genre brings wemay then be able to enter into a discourse community.Since, According to various genre theorists, genres reveal useful information regarding the values and goals ofdiscourse communities, I will be using the genre of a community that I plan to enter as a way of analyzing howto communicate with that group. I have chosen to study engineering as a discipline, because it is a field I aminteresting in. In order to analyze appropriate methods of communication for that group, I will be analyzingthree articles from the field, looking specifically at the genre setting, participants, features, subjects, patterns.
  • 5. FROM YOUR GENRE ANALYSIS PAPER Copy the rest of your genre analysis, and paste it below the introduction of your new document. Essentially, you should have copied the entire genre analysis onto a new document. Keep the formatting of the genre analysis document, if you’d like.
  • 6. AFTER THE LAST PARAGRAPH OF YOUR GENRE ANALYSIS 1. Add a new heading in bold. Something like “From Genres to Arguments: The Structure of Roller Coasters” 2. Copy the introduction from your annotated bib and paste it underneath this new heading. It should look something like this:After exploring genres common to the field of Mechanical Engineering through a preliminary genre analysis, Icontinued to analyze the language and genres of my field by tracing a mechanical concern relevant to engineers.To do this, I have gathered articles relating to the connection between structural stress analysis and amusementrides, such as roller coasters. I have found numerous of academic articles pertaining to this topic, and have tracedthe consistencies and patterns that are common to these articles. Through my research, I have found sources thatdiscuss the research of peak stress analysis in structures (Atzoria et al.; Meneghettia et al.;Wang et al.), as well asdocumentation of safety protocol (ASTM International; NSPE), which is applied in the industrial world throughamusement parks such as Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and Alton Towers (Ogando; ProfessionalEngineering). These sources have assisted me in identifying the various aspects of this issue in relation to thefield of mechanical engineering. In addition, these articles have helped me to continue to explore the genreconventions that I will need to learn as I begin to enter a new community in my major.
  • 7. THEN… Copy and paste the paragraph that you wrote in your journal today. This paragraph should go right underneath the intro to your annotated bib.After exploring genres common to the field of Mechanical Engineering through a preliminary genre analysis, Icontinued to analyze the language and genres of my field by tracing a mechanical concern relevant to engineers. To dothis, I have gathered articles relating to the connection between structural stress analysis and amusement rides, such asroller coasters.

  • 8. NOW, YOUR INQUIRY PAPER Copy and paste your inquiry paper (the headings) right below the last paragraph that you wrote. So, the order so far should be:3) Intro from genre analysis4) Genre Analysis paper5) Intro from annotated bib6) Paragraph from today’s journal7) Inquiry paper
  • 9. BEFORE TOMORROW… Finish all sections of your inquiry paper. I will check for this tomorrow before peer- review We will be conducting peer-review in class tomorrow. Please bring your laptops. Don’t skip class tomorrow! We are working on the most important section of your paper
