Genre analysis | Economics homework help

This assignment assesses your ability to:

• SLO 2: identify specific conventions, audiences, and purposes relevant to
one’s particular discipline;

• MLO 3: identify the rhetorical elements of a genre (analysis); and
• MLO 4: analyze a discipline-specific genre for its genre conventions (analysis).

Although writing occurs in every discipline, what this writing looks like will vary across
disciplines. For example, writing a lab report in a Biology class is different from writing a
literature review in an Economics class or an expert witness testimony in a Courts and
Forensics course. Put another way, writing is discipline-specific, which means every
discipline has specific genres that are commonly used within that discipline. The purpose
of this assignment is to help you become more familiar with what effective writing and
communication looks like in your discipline so that you can continue to build your
professional ethos.


In this assignment, you will analyze a discipline-specific genre provided by your
instructor using the chart below.

Step 1: Review the below Genre Analysis Chart. When you are ready to begin the
assignment, download the Word doc. version of the Genre Analysis Chart.

On the left side of the chart, you will notice different categories for analysis. There are
specific guiding questions for you to consider as you analyze your genre. Although you
should analyze each category, you do not need to respond to all of the questions in each

category; instead, you should choose to respond to the questions that are most
applicable to the genre you are analyzing. This is what you put in the first column:
“Analysis of the genre.” Then, you will identify at least one specific example from the
genre that offers evidence to support the analysis you put in the first column. This is
what you put in the second column: “Specific evidence from the genre.”
