Analysis of art is often left to our limbic brain and often our words to express what we feel fall short. We are going to spend time in visual arguments training our words to express what our feelings know to be true.
1. Go to pulitzer.org and choose one of the photography or editorial cartoons to analysis for argument. Make sure the picture and citation is included on the same document as your paragraph. In your paragraph, address how this visual fulfills the parameters laid out in jolliffe’s Rhetorical Framework, and determine what factors make the purpose and exigency effective. Due Friday in class for discussion (have a hard copy).
2. Create a thesis to prove through a visual argument. Produce a 5-6 image argument (use whatever medium that will support your argument best — powerpoint might work, but does it sell your argument?) The goal is to show your argument and have the class be able to identify it through image only, no words, no music. This is DUE on Monday 11/17/14 for presentation.
