Stifling of Language and my Discourse Community

THE ASSIGNMENT RULES

FORMAT AND LENGTH: I’m looking for a minimum 4.5-page MLA paper (meaning I want your work to bleed onto half of the fifth page). **Any paper that is not at least 4.5 pages long and in proper MLA will not be accepted and will not be given the opportunity to revise**

AUDIENCE: Imagine your paper is being read by a panel of writing instructors from various college campuses, and they are unfamiliar with this prompt. How can you give them enough information, early on, in order to understand your paper’s purpose?

METHOD: To do this paper well, you will need to have a substantial number of peer-reviewed, scholarly articles to explore. We will discuss how best to approach your particular project, but keep in mind that if you avoid the campus databases, you may not be able to do this paper very well.
