Class Notes: 10/10

Starts off with questions:

 

Discourse Community-text and language (little d)

 

Communities of Practice-other stuff, values, etc. + little d = “D”

  • Shared interests, involvements

 

Discourses come from Communities of Practice

 

Social, Political, and Recreational Communities: 

  • Communities are separate from communities of practice
    • If you’re not involved in some ways, you’re not involved in that community of practice.
    • Example: Moving to a different state and joining a new church, a different community of practice. 
    • John’s says that different ideas and viewpoints develop within a community of practice, since we are all part of different discourses, we bring those in with us. 
    • There would be no growth is everything was the same. We challenge each other and push each other. 

 

Want to target audience to be very focused and narrow so that you are able to determine the discourse.

 

Academic communities texts are supposed to be heavy and slow down the reader, you should have questions after reading them.
