For me, the logos, pathos and ethos perspective of joining a discourse community I had been part of, taught me a lesson about interpersonal skills, organizational systems and professionalism.

For over a thousand years, ever since the first nurses came to be in 300 AD, their healthcare practices have significantly evolved over the course of the years (The History of Nursing, 2018).

A majority of people believe they could just walk into Sheetz on any day and know how to perform as an employee. However, it is not that simple because a discourse community like Sheetz requires much practice to actually know what to accomplish. In the Sheetz community, it is required to learn how to perform tasks from managers and other employees by observation. We also learn by watching training videos and going through PowerPoints about how to present good customer service. As for the employees who actually love working, they put all of their effort into keeping the environment for customers as enjoyable as possible.
It is my hope that examining the lab as a discourse community will increase public knowledge about how the biomedical research community functions, and in doing so will dispel any myths about research’s inherent lack of collaboration. Since the Jordan Lab is small, I will also explore how small a group can be while still being considered an active discourse community, and how size can affect a discourse community’s functioning. Finally, I will examine the role assimilation plays in the Jordan Lab, and then generalize those findings to discourse communities as a
Students Name Professors Name Course Date Discourse Community Ethnography The introduction of the notion of communicative competence has been positive in the sense that communication is now conceived as a result of the successful application of not only grammatical but also pragmatic knowledge and skills. Nevertheless, this has not changed the perspective many instructors had of language, because pragmatic information has usually been presented as an auxiliary component which is to be used only when grammatical explanations are difficult or impossible. The result is that for many language educators here is still a core clement about which they have to be especially careful grammatical competence.

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.
Before the start of this paper I did not know what a discourse community was, but after reading and synthesizing the articles, I have formed an idea or understanding of discourse communities and how they work. Therefore I can honestly answer questions about discourse communities and can be confident in my ability to answer, I can also participate in discussions and now judge and determine what discourse communities I belong too in the
It was initially created by Charles Berners in 1965; it was then changed by Michael Argyle, who was a social therapist, in 1972. The idea of a ‘communication cycle’ makes it clear that, keeping in mind the end goal to have viable communication, it must be a two way handle. As well as exchanging messages to others in a distinct, clear manner, medicinal services experts must have the capacity to react to the verbal input and in addition the non-verbal criticism or feedback. Along these lines, effective communication needs to include exertion from both
The patient was transferred in an unstable state without proper organization, which prompted the sequence of events that resulted in an urgent code. Poor communication between the units lead to more confusion to what was actually happening with this patient, which created this breech in our ability to manage this situation effectively. The family was not informed about what was happening, why the patient was transferred, what was his diagnosis and the whole context of the situation enabling them to be increasingly more anxious, which contributed to creating an even more chaotic environment. Another negative aspect reflected how the patient was transferred at the end of the shift without proper notice, which caused the next shift to start off with a code that would disorganize their entire shift.

Discourse community is slight different from a speech community.
