English 102 Mulligan Unit 1 Assignments: Science and Memory Feeder 1.1: Analysis of Scientific Articles Draft Due: Wednesday, Jan. 19th Final Due: Monday, Jan. 24th Choose a topic related to memory from the list of possible topics (listed below the assignment sequence). Find two articles that approach the topic scientifically. One article should be written to an audience of non-specialists, and the other should be written to an audience of specialists. In a 2-3 page paper, analyze the similarities and differences between the two articles in terms of audience and evidence. Your paper should answer the following questions: • What kinds of audiences are these authors writing for? How do you know? • How does each author establish his/her authority in the article? Are the authors equally credible? • In terms of purpose, content/evidence, and presentation, how are the two articles similar? In what ways are the two articles different? Do you think that the difference between the intended audiences can explain all the differences between the articles? • What seem to be unique stylistic characteristics of scientific writing? How are these different from the ways we write papers in other disciplines? Turn in a copy of each article with your assignment.
