Umbrella
                     or
                 Bridge
Discourse communities as the centerpiece of FYC

    Chris Friend / @chris_friend / University of Central Florida
The Scenario
✤ Flexibility of writing
               process
             ✤ Strategies for responding
               to rhetorical situations
             ✤ Skills for reading
               complex texts

The          ✤ Understanding how
               conventions, lexia, &

Curriculum     genres are situated w/in
               discourse communities
High-School Precedent

✤   Transactional
✤   Unknown audience
✤   Goal: Test-passing
✤   Artificial & high-stakes
The Assignments


✤   Process Analysis
✤   Rhetorical Analysis
✤   Discourse Community
    Ethnography
The Problem
Duplication
“The staff at the
restaurant where I work is
 a discourse community.”

      ×25 per class.
     Every semester.
Missing Expectations
Students identified a
discourse community but
did nothing with that info.
   We wanted analysis/
 extension/conclusions.
The Task Force
Our Mission
We were tasked with
finding a new approach
 to DCs that could help
students apply, not just
state, their knowledge.
The Dirty Work
We decided to create a
sequence of assignments
and evaluation rubrics—
  helpful, but overkill.
       And hard.
The Solution

The Philosophies
Umbrella and Bridge
We see DCs as bridging
other units together and
     as umbrellas,
   containing several
    concepts within.
