Visual rhetoric refers to how we are influenced by the images we see. Billboards, ads on social media and images on television and in magazines communicate a variety of messages that affect our perceptions and govern our decisions every day ― whether we realize it or not.
Help high-school students think critically about visual communication and its impact on their understanding of the world. In this lesson plan, students will evaluate examples of visual arguments. They will then conduct research on a controversial topic using Points of View Reference Center. Finally, they will write and present a 5-minute persuasive speech that includes multimedia and visual aids to engage the audience.
