Fall 2011, Unit 1: Community, Style, and Syntax in Genre Studies

In Unit 1 of Fall 2011, students worked in groups to share "manufactured documents" on their blogs.  Through these blogs, they imagined stories of shark attacks and murder mysteries, September 11th and the Potato Famine, weddings and college admissions.  Their research focused on both the specific events surrounding these situations and the genre conventions used to report these situations.  From police reports to wedding vows, the students revealed a great deal of creativity in revealing just how we learn about the stories we "know."


  1. Your points and ideas are easily accepted by their readers. The explanation is also good for understand. quality thesis service is providing the ideas and explanation about making good content for their studies.

  2. Shark attacks and murder mysteries are dark, aren’t they? I mean how creatively students of today think and put their thoughts into words. When I was a student, I did nothing except getting help; sometimes assignment help and sometimes dissertation writing service. I mean, these kids are smart!

  3. It is so wonderful of you for sharing the knowledge you have with everyone else. Your blog kept me hooked from the beginning till the end and the words you have chosen were easy to understand.
