Rubric for Essay Two: Discourse Community EssayCharacteristics of the A EssayThe essay never strays from its purpose. The subject is focused, significant, interesting, and manageable.The observations include effective use of sensory details, figurative language, and active verbs, describing both the discourse community and their communication practices.The claims made by the writer are well-supported with evidence and examples (this includes claims about the group’s communication practices, your conclusions about discourse communities in general and as they relate to the observed group).The essay is logically organized without feeling mechanical or formulaic.Sentences are varied in length and structure, according to the author’s purpose and emphasis.Mechanically, the essay is correct except for very few excusable errors of inadvertence and violations of extremely technical rules.There is evidence of revision that not only addresses the areas indicated by teacher/peer comments, but also makes the entire paper stronger.Characteristics of the B EssayThe essay has a firm purpose but may not always affect the audience as the writer expects it to. The subject is focused and interesting.The observations include use of sensory details, figurative language, and/or active verbs, describing both the discourse community and their communication practices.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
