This document is a model for students writing a long report for an EGS 215 course. It describes the purpose of the assignment, the requirements, as well as the organization and research involved with the project. Additionally, this report can act as a model or a template for students who will want samples beyond the textbook and class readings.
In order to prepare yourself for workplace writing in your future profession, it can be helpful to understand the types of contexts and settings for which you might be writing. This project is meant to help you understand and study the community-context knowledge necessary to be a successful writer and communicator in your field.
To be an effective writer in the workplace, you need to know more than just the types of writing (genres) involved in your profession. You must also understand the contexts, audiences, conventions, language/diction, and values of a workplace community in order to write and communicate effectively.
For this project, you’ll write a long report that examines writing and communication in your profession. You might think of the report as an informative guide for other students with similar career interests.
What should you include in the report? You have some freedom in your choice of how you organize the guide, based on the information you gather and what writing and communication is most important in your profession. However, the following sections/topics might give you some ideas of what you might address in the report:
Specific written and oral genres are essential to most workplaces. In addition to everyday communication, such as with emails or texting, various types of documentation are key in the workplace. In many fields you might hear the expression, “If it isn’t documented, it didn’t happen,” which reflects how important writing can be. However, the genres used can vary greatly, depending on the profession. In investigating the genres used in your field you might consider:
Effective workplace writing and communication can also depend on the specific settings and circumstances in which communication takes place. In order to become an effective writer and communicator in your profession then, it will also be important to understand the settings and circumstances. You might consider:
Specialized Language or Jargon/Lexis
Every profession has its own specialized language/jargon that is specific to that community, which someone outside of that community/workplace might not understand. For example, in medical professions, medical terminology and abbreviations are used in both written and oral communication, which people outside of those professions might not understand. In order to be an effective communicator in in your workplace, then, you will also need to understand any specialized terminology or way of speaking/writing. Investigating such language use in your own profession, then, you might consider:
Different professions might not only use different genres, but they might also engage with different tools or technologies in writing and communication. For example, some professions will use specific programs for writing and documentation. Some professions write and communicate in an office setting while others communicate remotely or in a variety of settings, employing different technologies. In examining how specific tools or technologies might influence the writing and communication in your field, you might consider:
In order to gather the information you’ll need to write this report, you’ll need to conduct extensive research. I expect you’ll need to engage in both primary research and secondary research in order to collect the necessary material for this project:
This is the type of research you do to collect new information that’s not found in textual sources. This might include interviewing someone in your profession, conducting surveys of people in your profession, observing people on-the-job in specific work settings (“shadowing”), collecting “artifacts” in your specific field (such as textual genres and materials used in your profession as forms of communication).
For this project, such primary research might be essential in order to gain the information you need about writing and communication in your specific profession. Interviewing someone in this profession can give you important insights and information that you might not gain from textual research.
This type of research is the more common textual research you usually do for academic projects. Secondary sources might include books, textbooks, articles, and videos. It is essential to critically consider the credibility of such sources.
