A Threefold Typology

Constructing Genre: A Threefold Typology Constructing Genre: A Threefold Typology, by Donna J. Kain, TECHNICAL COMMUNICATION QUARTERLY, Technical Communication Quarterly, 14 (4), 375–409. 2005, Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, Inc. East Carolina University, built environment, shaped spaces. The article team was concerned with built environments, spaces shaped articulated, designed, and constructed in ways that have often excluded people. The term genre has been used to describe “stabilized-for-now” (Schryer, “Records”) amalgamations of rhetorical strategies, content, and form to mediate ongoing activities, social relationships, and systems of activities. Theorists argue persuasively that, as typifications of discursive actions, genres allow people to recognize and act on the social purposes of texts within particular contexts (e.g., Miller). Consequently, much genre research and theory over the past twenty years has concentrated on texts that are routine, recurring forms of discourse enacted within communities, or among communities that interact in larger “networks” (Bazerman, “Systems”). Theorists discuss genre in two ways simultaneously: (1) plurally, as actual types of Discourse in use, and (2) singularly, as a concept for categorizing, and strategically-applied knowledge about interpreting, managing, constructing, and negotiating discourse specific genres such as medical diagnoses and evaluations of learning-disabled students. Thus, the identities of people with disabilities and their access to social in stitutions and spaces have in the past largely been articulated by and to others employers, courts, and medical professionals, architects—not by those who have disabilities (Barton; Parr and Butler; M. Russell). Lateral thinking and lateral membership envelope the expertise pool and impart a genre of the group as rhetoric or rhetorical text. New members of a genre must learn the vocabulary of the community and...

Sex-Related Risk Among Urban Youth

Early Sexual Initiation and Subsequent Sex-Related Risk Among Urban Youth: The Reach for Health Study, by Linda O’Donnell, Carl R. O’Donnell, and Ann Stueve The author suggests a context for his hypothesis that is “far out,” She implies sexual promiscuity started in the 1980’s. The author contends youth are having sex at a younger age than ever before.  The Author further contends there is data that supports this idea. The author introduces two terms “relationships” and “subsequent risk” of sexual behavior among youth.  They did a survey of urban minority youth, 8th graders who are considered adolescents. The group tested 10th grader sexual initiation, and risks while adjusting for gender, ethnicity, and age.  It is curious how the survey adjusted for genders but did not adjust for socioeconomic indicators. I wonder how homosexual behavior fit in the gender adjusted data result. The findings of the survey suggest that early sexual activity is an indicator of multiple partners. The data said, 54% had sex before reaching 10th grade and 12% had experienced pregnancy. Since the 80’s, abortions the advent of “planned parenthood” and the general acceptance of birth control pills, promiscuity has been on the rise.  The author records sexual activity in minority youth who make up less than 12% of the population for the survey.  The author excludes the other 88% of the population, who are not having sex, or they are not making babies, or they are just not considered for this at-risk survey as the youth. This article is irresponsible and a bias point of view. The test group surveyed misrepresented by age, sex, race, and ethnicity....
