      • (~23 minutes)
    • In groups of 3-4, choose a TV show you are all familiar with. What are some unique ways in which language works on that show? Think about:
      • Common phrases
      • Show-specific vocabulary
      • Recurring jokes
      • Patterns in plot, show format
      • Target audience, purpose
    • Is it a discourse community?
  • 22. Discussion
    • Swales argues that it is possible to participate in a discourse community without being assimilated in it. What does this mean?
  • 23. Discussion
    • Consider a time when you participated in a discourse community but resisted it or were not assimilated into it. What happened?
  • 24. Discussion
    • Do you understand anything differently about your own writing experiences after reading Swales’s description of how discourse communities work? If so, consider a way that this understanding can help you navigate discourse communities in the future.
