Now that you have received feedback on Paper 2, you need to revise it to incorporate the feedback you have received. In this rhetorical situation, you have been reading about discourse communities and you’re convinced that a group that you are part of is the perfect example of a discourse community. Your friend is bewildered. Not only does she not have a clue what a discourse community is, she also doesn’t get what would make this particular group one. Your job is to convince her by describing what a discourse community is and how your group fits the characteristics.
Notice that your audience has changed.
Notice that you are moving from two groups to one. The paper length stays the same (900 words), so you will need to make changes to accommodate this new prompt.
Although your audience has changed, she wants to be convinced that you are an authority on the topic, so you need to use citation (in-text and end-of-paper) appropriately. Additionally, you want to use a style that will convince her you know what you are talking about (without intimidating her).
Due Saturday 11:59 p.m. PST
