Title: That's Not Cricket
Authors: Vail, Peter
Keywords: rhetorical situation
Issue Date: 1997
Description: A winner of the John S. Knight Assignment Sequence Prize, this sequence originates from Anthropology 152, Sports and Culture. Students write a sequence of three essays drawing on the same data to use in writing for three widely disparate audiences. The "data" is drawn from the game of cricket, as played not only in Great Britain but in the Trobriand Islands. Preparatory experiential learning for students includes playing a trial game of cricket, with attendant ceremonies. 6 page pdf
