Hello all!

Today we started by reviewing Taylor and Rients’ article on business genres. We then shifted our focus into the objectives of Unit 3, which is centered around genres within our majors and aspiring professions. To review the former point, we went online and looked at the undergraduate catalog. Your mission was to look at the classes within your major (required and elective) to determine what you perceive the values of your discipline to be. You then outlined a few courses in your plan of study in order to explain the discourse community surrounding your field of study.

All in all, a lot of good ideas were brought up (and I’m glad to see so many of you using the university catalog!) Keep the conversations from class today in mind as we formally move into our next unit.
