Care is most often defined as a practice, value, disposition, or virtue, and is frequently portrayed as an overlapping set of concepts. [6,8] It suggests that there is a moral implication in the fundamental elements of relationships and dependencies, seeking to preserve relationships by inspecting and promoting the well-being of care givers and care receivers. [6,8] Care ethics accentuates the importance of caring motivation and emotion.  Care is seen as an ongoing process, which is both a practice and a disposition, which involves taking the concerns and needs of the other as the basis for action. Four phases of the caring process are identified as caring about, taking care of, care giving and care receiving.
Recently, there has been a lot of interest in discourse communities. According to James Porter, "a discourse community is a group of people bound by a common interest who communicate through channels and discourse is regulated (Couzelis, Isip, Adkins 12 and Porter 38-39). John Swales, however, states that a community can only be a true discourse community if they meet six requirements: they have to share clearly stated goals; they have to use a mechanism of communication; they offer feedback and information; utilize one or more genres of text, the group uses specific lexis; and they have old members with new ones (Couzelis, Isip, Adkins 12 and Swales 471-473). Under these guidelines, Mike Rose 's mother Rosie is in a discourse community because
(Swales, 220). In the article the six characteristics is “ A discourse community has a broadly agreed set of common public goals, A discourse community has mechanisms of intercommunication among the members, A discourse community uses its participatory mechanisms, primarily to provide information and feedback, A discourse community utilizes and hences possess one or more genres in the communicative furtherance of its aims, In addition to owning genres, a discourse community has acquired some specific lexis, and A discourse has a threshold level of members with a suitable degree of relevant content and discoursal expertise”. (Swales, 220). A discourse community is a community of people who have the same interests and they share the same goals with each other. This definition gives a good understanding of how a discourse community possibly begins.

Please describe what you believe are your academic and personal strengths as a potential social worker. My academic strengths as a potential social worker are listening, organizing, and critical thinking skills. For a social worker is important to listen to others, and understand where each person is coming from. It is important to understand each client’s situation. An organized person can get more things done in a shorter time.
The concept of genre Swales (1990), believes that a genre is a class of communicative events in which language has a vital and inseparable role. He also adds that the principal factor which changes a series of communicative events into a genre is “some shared set of communicative purposes” (p.46). Regarding the communicative events Bahatia (1997) believes that “genre analysis is the study of situated linguistic behavior in institutionalized academic or professional setting”. He further defines genre in terms of “the use of language in conventionalized communicative settings”. He further goes on to point out that genres serve the aims of specific discourse communities and to this end they set relatively “stable structural forms”.
Cohen uses the Chicago School experiment to reinforce these ideas, and he dispels some myths about the experiment. Community, has many meanings. The definition I think most appropriate to this essay would be ‘A reasonable interpretation of the word’s use would seem to imply two related suggestions: that the members of a group of people (a) have something in common with each other, which (b) distinguishes them in a significant way from the members of other putative groups. ‘Community’ thus seems to imply simultaneously both similarity and difference.’ (Cohen, 1985, p. 12) Cohen views community as a system of values, norms and moral codes. Community offers us a sense of individuality among a group of members.
However, people must listen to each other, no matter anyone’s opinion, since that’s how new ideas are created, how people come together, and how people become educated. The way people are able to create distinct ideas in the world is by communicating and in return listening. If someone was to truly ponder about how things have been created, they would realize that it takes communication. For example, if someone
2. When it comes to rhetoric, the author explains how important it is to communicate clearly to your audience. Rhetoric is considered technical writing, which is analyzed for developing good writing skills. The techniques used for rhetoric are: For what reason or purpose to conduct the writing, knowing your audience or reader beforehand, what type of setting and language being conveyed and what relationship does the writer give to the reader. When comparing to my thinking about rhetoric, the language, tone, knowledge, spelling and grammar are important to writing a good, clear, knowledgeable and understanding paper for others to comprehend.

According to John Swales a discourse community is a group of individuals that use specific words, or lexis, to work together to achieve a shared goal. The community has different forms of intercommunication that helps the members decrease any weaknesses and improve on any strengths. John Swales goes on to explain that there will be “six defining characteristics that will be necessary for identifying a group of individuals as a discourse community” (220). In order to really understand what a discourse community is I took specific observations of a group. These observations would lead me to understand what a discourse community is.
4. Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative, connotative, and technical meanings; analyze the cumulative impact of specific word choices on meaning and tone (e.g., how the language of a court opinion differs from that of a newspaper. 5. Analyze in detail how an author’s ideas or claims are developed and refined by particular sentences, paragraphs, or larger portions of a text (e.g., a section or chapter). 6.
A discourse community is a group of people who share a common goal. Swale, a writer, states that a discourse community has six characteristics. It consists of a common public goal, intercommunication, providing feedback and information, genre, lexis, and expertise. Without these functions, a discourse community would not exist. To many people, a common goal cannot be met, or agreed upon.
The interview questions were based on the “six characteristics of a discourse community according to John Swales” (Swales, 1990) as well as “the chacteristics of an activity system according to Elizabeth Wardle and Donna Kain” (Donna Kain, 2014). During, the interview many of the questions allowed for further discussion to take place about each individual characteristic of the community and how that characteristic benefits the community. Similiarily, in the interview other topics were discussed such as events that were going to take place in the community and how those events connected with the “ motives of the association” (Donna Kain, 2014). The interview was conducted like a conversation to easily receive information concerning the characteristics of an activity system or discourse community. The readings contributed to the interview as well by defining the characteristics to make it easier for the interviewee to understand the different concepts being discussed.
By going through this process, the writer is forced to think critically and read closely, improving not only their own opinion, but also a better understanding of the original piece and the original author’s ideas. This exchange of ideas helps the writer to engage the reader in a
