My assignment is below and I have attached the 2 documents the teacher provided. My profession is in the manufacturing industry currently:
The Genre Analysis assignment requires you to gather several examples of one type of genre (e.g. lab report, business plan, brochure, flyer, business letter, professional email, etc.) and compare across each example for the conventions that define that specific genre. In the workplace, you will be required to write in several different genres. It is important that you are able to recognize the conventions of the genre in which you are working and make the appropriate rhetorical choices to communicate your message, while addressing reader-user expectations.
To complete the Genre Analysis assignment, first collect 3-5 artifacts (representative samples) of the genre you’ve selected. Again, each example should be from the same type of genre.
Next, use the Analyzing Genres document (below) to investigate and interpret patterns across artifacts. What similarities in structure, word choice, social expectations, and other features do you notice?
The final step is to write a brief (100-150) synopsis of your findings. As a writer, what do you need to know to be able to write effectively in this genre? What will reader-users expect from this genre?
The deliverables for this assignment are 1) Your responses to the Analyzing Genres document, 2) Your synopsis, and 3) The artifacts you collects (submitted as either links and/or file uploads.
Questions to answer.
Given what we’ve learned about genres thus far from the McCloud comic and Mere Rhetoric podcast, what do you know about the ways people in your profession* communicate? What genres are important to getting things done? What can you begin to do now, while in college, to help prepare yourself to better communicate in the genres important in your career? As a writer, what is important to consider when writing/creating in this genre? What will reader-users expect from this genre? How have the McCloud comic and Mere Rhetoric podcast informed your analysis?
