Extra Credit Visual Argument:

Design a Visual Argument that goes along with your argument position paper. Brainstorm the types of visual rhetoric you might use to clearly and powerfully communicate your message to an audience. Be creative and try to think outside the box! You could do a collage, photo essay, short video, a series of posters, an ad campaign, a mural, a children's book, a sculpture, or food art -- just to name a few ideas.

As you create your visual argument, just like you did in your written essay, consider how to use the rhetorical appeals (ethos, pathos, logos, kairos) to make your message persuasive.
