Storyboard Text

  • Hey there! My name is  Koltin, and today we  will be exploring the question that is:  Which type of Discourse Community  has the  greatest  affect on future success?
  • The first thing that we are going to talk about today are  the different types of Discourse Communities that exist in our world.  
  • A Discourse Community in our society is practically any group of people who exhibit the six characteristics  described  by John Swales.
  • There are many different Discourse Communities, but when they are grouped together  there are a few different types.   The kinds of Discourse Communities we will compare  are:  professional, religious, athletic, and academic. 
  • For instance, a club soccer team or  a traveling baseball team  would be considered an athletic  Discourse Community.
  •    A church youth group would be considered  a religious Discourse Community and  getting a job in a particular  industry could be considered admittance to a professional Discourse Community.
  • Each of these types of Discourse  Communities  have their own pro's and con's  when it comes to effecting a persons future success.  
  • Some common benefits of joining an athletic Discourse Community include leadership development, teamwork ability,  influences you to live a healthier life, etc... Each of these things can be correlated to becoming a successful adult later in life. 
  • Being exposed to success in a sport early on can develop an expectation that prepares many athletes to succeed  long after they are done playing their sports competitively. 
  • Becoming a member of a professional Discourse Community early on  can help prepare you for the situations you will be faced with throughout your career. This can also be used as  a head start for your career.
  • An internship is a great way to start the process of joining a professional  discourse community. Internships can also increase your chance at becoming successful by improving your chances of being hired at a company
  • Joining a religious Discourse Community can benefit you in ways that none of the other ways can.  
  • Becoming a member of a religious Discourse Community will likely cause you to make better choices in life and that in turn will cause you to become a better person. 
  • It has been observed that regularly attending church  can cause an increase in a persons average level of happiness.   Being a happy person can lead to a more fulfilling life, which  depending on the type of success you are looking for,  can allow you to live a successful life.
  • Academic Discourse Communities would be universities, research laboratories, high schools, classes, etc..   There are numerous benefits that come with membership to one of the Discourse Communities. 
  • Most of our young lives are spent in school,  so there is a lot of development taking place within academic Discourse Communities. Kids usually develop their work ethics in school, along with finding  interests and things that make them happy.
  • Most people want to see their children succeed so they tell them at an early age that going to college will help them achieve their goals. College can be very beneficial to people seeking careers in complicated  industries. 
  • More and more people are noticing that obtaining success without a college degree is becoming increasingly difficult. This is why more people are going to college than ever before. 
  • In order to determine which type of Discourse Community holds the greatest affect on future success, we must first determine what kind of success is wanted. 
  • Success itself is a very subjective term.  We must first determine what we need to do to   be able to call ourselves successful.  
  • If your end goal is financial success, then joining an academic or professional Discourse Community would  be better for you compared to an athletic or religious Discourse Community. 
  • If living a happy life is sufficient for living a successful life, than joining an athletic or religious Discourse Community would be much more beneficial than the other types.  This may not always be the case, as peoples interests vary greatly. 
  • A person can not become successful without first defining success for themselves. If we have nothing to work towards then we can  not become successful. 
  • In conclusion, doing what makes you happy is the best way to live a successful life. Whether that means joining a religious Discourse Community, an academic  Discourse Community, or not even joining one at all.  Everyone is free to do as they please.
