To join a discussion community, one must learn typical methods of communication and debate used by individuals who participate in that community. I will show that I became part of the soccer team’s discourse community by gaining expertise, establishing my authority, and learning the game I love in this paper.
When I first joined the soccer team, I knew very little about the sport. My understanding of the game was based on what I had seen in movies and TV. I soon learned that there were many things about the game that I did not know. In order to be accepted into the discourse community of my high school soccer team, I had to acquire this knowledge.
The first step in acquiring this new knowledge was to learn the jargon of the game. I had to learn terms like “touch,” “dribble,” “Through pass,” “First touch,” and many others. Once I learned these terms, I was able to understand what my teammates and coaches were saying during practice and games.
In addition to acquiring the jargon, I also had to learn the rules of the game. This was a bit more difficult than learning the jargon because there are many rules in soccer. However, I was able to quickly learn the basic rules by watching games and asking my teammates and coaches questions.
After I acquired the necessary knowledge, I had to establish my credibility with my teammates and coaches. To do this, I showed them that I was willing to work hard and that I wanted to learn. I did this by attending every practice and giving 100% effort. I also watched game film with my coach so that I could learn from my mistakes.
Finally, I had to show my passion for the game. Soccer is a very emotional sport, and my teammates and coaches could tell that I loved the game. I did this by always having a positive attitude, even when we were losing. I also cheered on my teammates, even if they were better than me.
By acquiring knowledge, establishing credibility, and showing passion, I was able to enter the discourse community of my high school soccer team. This allowed me to improve as a player and to form relationships with my teammates and coaches. Soccer has become a big part of my life, and I am grateful for the opportunity to play on my high school team.
I’ll be employing the appeals based on ethos, logos, and pathos. I adore playing and observing top athletes who play on TV. Since I was ten years old, I’ve been playing in a city league squad. The duties of being on the team were simple but at the same time extremely difficult. I played for my high school’s soccer team, Crowley Eagles, this season.
I remember the first time I had to try out for the team. It was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. There were fifty other girls trying out for the team, and only seventeen of us would make it. The coach put us through a series of drills that tested our speed, agility, and ball control. After two hours of grueling work, the coach finally announced the names of the girls who made the team. I was one of them.
Playing on a high school soccer team is a great experience that teaches you many valuable lessons. For example, you learn how to be part of a team and how to work together with others to achieve a common goal. You also learn how to handle success and failure, and how to deal with the emotions that come with both.
When you are part of a discourse community, you learn how to use rhetoric to persuade others to see your point of view. Rhetoric is the art of using language to persuasion, and it is a skill that is essential in any discourse community.
In a soccer team, for example, you might use rhetoric to convince your teammates to pass the ball to you more often. Or you might use it to persuade the coach to put you in the starting lineup. Either way, being able to use rhetoric effectively is an important part of being part of a discourse community.
We weren’t just another soccer team. We were a family that grew to adore each other, and we believed in ourselves even when others didn’t. From the season’s start, when we lost most of our games, to our comeback and undefeated record would have never broken us up.
Rhetoric played a big role in our team as it brought us closer together and allowed us to better understand each other. Emotion was also important to our team because it made us play harder and never give up. These two things combined is what made us successful.
We always had each other’s back no matter what, on and off the field. We would console each other after a loss and celebrate together after a win. Rhetoric was key in allowing us to communicate effectively with one another and express how we were feeling. This helped us to stay connected as a team even when we were going through tough times. Emotion was also vital to our success because it gave us the drive to never give up and keep fighting for our goals.
Without rhetoric and emotion, we would have never been able to come together as a team and achieve the success that we did. These two things are what made us a family and allowed us to accomplish our goals.
