I have learned that the rhetorical nature of writing doesn't change. The tone that we use in writing and the approach that we take all depend of our intended audience and/or the discipline in which we are writing.  For an example, the language used in writing for a military audience is completely different than that used for a childrens book.

Writing Across Disciplines
01:11
After writing across three disciplines during this course, I learned that the relationship between how we write and what we believe is important is simple and quite intimate...
01:13
-Writing gave me a voice
01:14
-Writing promoted analytical thinking 
01:14
-Writing allowed me to share my ideas
01:15
-Writing gave me a platform to share solutions for problem solving
01:15
-Writing is one of the best ways I am able to communicate my perspective with clarity

Reflection
01:26
In this course I have had the opportunity to research and write across the following three disciplines:
01:30
Humanities
01:30
Social Sciences
01:30
Natural Sciences
01:31
Writing across the disciplines forced me to analyze reading material relevant to the specific discipline while remaining objective and on topic
01:43
After emphasizing on The Role of Substance Abuse in Sexual Assault across the three disciplines, my views on writing has completely changed. It is now much more complex in a relevant way! There isn't one discipline that is superior to the other. Collectively, they have help to improve the quality of my writing and develop my research skills.
