Objective: To create an argument based on one of the selected images. I will send the images to you.
Write an essay that argues for what impact the image makes from what you chose.
Questions to think about:
— Is the image positive or negative?
— Are viewers supposed to learn something?
–Does it deter an action or cause an action to happen?
— For whom?
You do not necessarily need to know the background of the image, but study the image carefully and based on your own knowledge (this can be from your own educational experiences, what you read in the news, what you may discuss with family and friends, and so forth) write your thoughts about the effects of this image. However avoid making sweeping generalizations about your topic.
(1) Write an introduction that gives an overview or background of your topic. What should they know based upon your introduction? Lead readers to your thesis.
(2) In your support paragraphs, revisit the image; describe the purpose of the image and its effect (Here, you can have creative leeway).
(3) Discuss what you want your audience to believe about the side you choose. It may help to put the images in context; in other words, what happened? How does this color what you believe about the image’s purpose?
