Enc 1102 thursday june 7th

  1. 1. E RS PAP Y 7TH IR NE U Y, JU Q N URSDAI TH
  2. 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? 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. I have found numerous of academic articles pertaining to this topic, and have traced the consistenciesand patterns that are common to these articles.

These sources haveassisted me in identifying the various aspects of this issue in relation to the field of mechanical engineering. Inaddition, these articles have helped me to continue to explore the genre conventions that I will need to learn as I beginto enter a new community in my major.I chose to study roller coasters because….
  8. 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. 9. THIS IS YOUR FINAL PROJECT
  10. 10. BUT…
  11. 11. HOMEWORK At the end of your paper, you’ll need to identify a “gap” in the research you’ve conducted. If you were already in the field that you are studying, how would you contribute to the conversation?Think about:--Studying a different population. High Schoolers/college students/ senior citizens--Studying a different aspect of what your sources say. Making just one clarification--Conducting a study that looks at different variables or a different population.
  12. 12. WHAT WE STILL HAVE TO DO…1) Read through your entire document, making any revisions as you see fit. Pay particular attention to the connections between each of the sections. Could you smooth them out in some way?3) Save a new copy of the entire document and label it: Inquiry Paper Peer Review Draft (or something like that)5) Turn the track changes on (as me for help with this if you need to) and switch with a partner.
  13. 13. PEER REVIEW1) Read through your partner’s entire document, making comments along the way. Mark anything that is unclear, any quotes that could be explained, anything that doesn’t make sense, any missing page numbers or parenthetical references, any ideas that are not thoroughly elaborated.3) Write them a note at the end of the document, and sign your name. In this note, explain: 1)What is the strongest part of the paper? The weakest? 2)Make specific suggestions for improvement
  14. 14. WRITE At the end of your last section, write one paragraph that summarizes the conversation you have explored and identifies a gap in the research: My sources have covered….. However, they have not covered….If I were to continue exploring this topic as an engineer/psychologist/politician, I would look at…..because….. Save the new document and revise over the weekend. Print a copy of the inquiry paper, starting with the paragraph that you wrote in class today, and bring it to your conference on Monday.
