English 102-58 Hollye Wright Spring 2010 Formal Assignment #1: Discipline Profile 150 points Overview: Career options are overwhelming and students often end up deciding on their major based on a slight interest or recommendation from a parent, relative, past teacher, or mentor, only to discover that once they are deeply involved in the course work specific to the discipline that they have little interest or talent for the complexities of the discipline. A prime example is freshmen engineering students. Having decided their major based on the past experience of someone commenting on their talent in science or math, they realize that they lack important communication, presentation and team work skills in order to be a successful participant in this discipline. In order to become more fully aware of a discipline that highly interests you this assignment requires you to conduct several types of primary and secondary research in order to create a detailed profile of the chosen discipline. The profile that you create will serve as a resource for yourself and other students considering pursuing a career in this discipline. Goals: Correctly identify and apply the conventions of profile writing. Practice using quotations and source material effectively. Discover what working as a member of your chosen discipline involves.
