Exercise 15 & journal 18

Exercise 15

One way to begin this assignment would be to take the activity theory triangle (such as found on page 404 of Writing About Writing) and use its basic structure as the “bones” of your infographic. Then fill in the details. You may, of course, go beyond the triangle or adopt a different organizational approach, but the triangle is a good start. 

Your infographic should provide key details about the six components of your activity system: the subject, rules, community, division of labor, motive, and especially the textual tools. (As in Marro’s activity analysis, you might not list, for example, the actual rules of the system but instead identify how they are made, enforced, codified, etc.) Your infographic should also have a clear labeling system and a way of understanding the connections you’ve found between the various parts of the system. 

Keep in mind that even identifying the components overview of an activity system is only the preliminary stages of your activity analysis essay. Your essay should not be primarily a description of the activity triangle applied to your chosen activity system. This infographic should, however, help you to think more about the various connections that you could explore for further analysis. 


A successful infographic will include the following traits: 

  • It is clearly and consistently labeled. (4 points) 
  • It has an organizational structure that is easy to understand. (4 points) 
  • It includes key details about each of the six activity system components and interactions between those components. (7 points) 
  • It focuses especially on the textual tools of the system. (5 points) 

Total possible score: 20 points.
