Sample Introduction:After exploring genres common to the field of psychologythrough a preliminary genre analysis, I continued analyzingthe language and genres of my field by tracing an argumentrelevant to psychologists. I gathered articles relating to theconnection between toddles language training andadolescent learning. I found academic articles relating to thistopic, and traced the arguments and patterns common tothese articles. Through my research, I have found sourcesclaiming that toddler language training is crucial toadolescent proficiency (Smith; Jones; Meri) and others whoclaim that toddler language training can have a limitedimpact on adult learners (Wayne; Emig; Rice). These sourceshave helped me to identify the various aspects of this issue inrelation to the field of psychology. In addition, these articleshave helped me continue exploring the genre conventionsthat I will need to learn as I enter a new community throughmy major. 5. Annotated Bib: Why should Iwrite one?

Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life.New York: Anchor Books, 1995. Print.Anne Lamott, a professional writer, in her 1995 work, Bird byBird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life, asserts that studentsargue mostly with their own inner critic when writing a paper. Shesupports this assertion through a variety of anecdotes, in whichshe uses humor to display students insecurities with their ownwriting abilities. Her purpose was to show that students shouldbe more confident when writing, because they are often theirown tough critics. Her intended audience includes writingstudents and teachers, and she targets this audience by usinganecdotes from both the student and the teacher perspectives onwriting. 10. Example, part 2Lamotts book is relevant to my topic because she focuses onthe students writing processes as determinants of theirconfidence with writing. Stating, Students lack of confidencewith writing often limits their abilities, meaning that studentslimit their writing potential when they doubt themselves,Lamott argues that writing teachers should work to increasetheir students confidence with writing (89). This article relatesto the claims made by Swales, but he references the discoursecommunities in which students write, while Lammott speaksmore directly about individual students and their writingprocesses. This article can also be related to Grant-Davie, sincehe discusses rhetorical situations and their influence on howstudents might target audiences through their writing. 11.
