What Can This Visual Show Us About Our Own Society and Specific Thoughts, Beliefs, and Positions?
What can this visual show us about our own society and specific thoughts, beliefs, and positions?
Introduction: Make a claim—In your introduction to your essay, address the following questions with your intro and thesis: “How effective is the ad/visual argument in conveying its message to its audience?” and “What can this visual show us about our own society and specific thoughts, beliefs, and positions?” This is also where you will introduce an overview of your reasons/support.
Support your claim with evidence from the advertisement/visual argument:
Addressing particular details of the image and not necessarily giving me a summary of the entire image. What really catches your eye?
Body Paragraphs: What two or three details are doing the “heavy lifting” in the image? Which aspects of this image are doing the most to communicate the message of the ad to the reader? Write a paragraph for each of these details (2-3 body paragraphs). Refer to the questions from the homework exercise for ideas on how to build the content of these paragraphs.
Conclusion: Return to your position or stance and the claim you initially made with your introduction. Practice rephrasing and discussing the broader implications of your claims within the society that views this advertisement.
