Project Description

Project 2 asks you to write 1200-1400 words identifying a stakeholders’ argument that has been projected through their visual images. You will think critically about the visual and rhetorical strategies this particular group implements in their campaigns. You will choose two specific images created by the organization about a global or cultural issue (i.e. advertisements, PSAs, or static images used on a website, flyer, billboard, etc.), and analyze how these visual arguments reflect the organization’s goals. Project 2 is a Global Citizens Assignment.

Project Assignment

You will write an essay of 1200-1400 words based on the following requirements:

  1. select a single stakeholder (commercial or non-profit organization) and present its goals, mission, or message regarding your chosen topic or issue
  2. include a thesis that presents the relationship between the two images and the stakeholder’s main argument, including how the two images represent the interests of the stakeholder and its goals, message, or mission
  3. provide background on the stakeholder (context)
  4. analyze the rhetorical strategies used in both images, taking into consideration audience, message, purpose, rhetorical appeals, and/or rhetorical fallacies, and pointing to specific details from the image to support your claim
  5. use at least three sources; one must be a source from the stakeholder, and the others may come from secondary sources about the stakeholder or about the images discussed

Early Draft

The early draft should be used as a brainstorming space where you can begin thinking about the visual arguments used by stakeholders and how they achieve their desired goals through the use of visual and rhetorical strategies. You may use this draft to outline, freewrite, map, etc. as long as the exercise leads to more formulated claims in the subsequent draft.

Intermediate Draft

The intermediate draft should be a working draft (1200-1400 words) that analyzes how these visual arguments reflect the concerns of the stakeholder and discusses visual rhetorical strategies that establish relationships between the two images. This draft should include a thesis, all major points, evidence to support these points (including in-text citations from appropriate sources), and a Works Cited page. The draft must also include the two images analyzed by the student which should be embedded into the document.
