4/11: How can visuals argue?
One of the most common genres of arguing with video is the Public Service Announcement (PSA). In today’s class, we will view a range of PSAs and analyze the different rhetorical strategies each of them uses, and then brainstorm your own PSA project advancing your social cause.
To prepare for class:
- Read Hatfield, Hink, and Birkholt’s article “Seeing the Visual in Argumentation: A Rhetorical Analysis of UNICEF Belgium’s Smurf Public Service Announcement” (in ELMS)
- Submit the draft of your Infographic to ELMS!
