Genre Analysis

Background: In unfamiliar writing situations, genre analysis can help academic writers choose writing conventions that are appropriate for their purposes. As the writing of a particular academic discipline becomes more familiar, experienced academic writers develop their understanding of how and why certain genres and conventions are used. To investigate how expert writers use conventions to achieve their purposes, this assignment asks you to analyze important writing choices in a journal article related to your major or intended writing intensive course.

Prompt: How do expert writers in the disciplines use structure, reference, and language conventions to achieve their purposes? Describe the purpose and audience of a journal article from a discipline related to your undergraduate goals; explain why one significant convention in the article is an effective choice for the article’s purpose and audience; discuss what undergraduate writers in the disciplines can learn from your analysis.
