Free College Education in United States Rhetorical Analysis


Question Description

Implementing Free College Education in the United States

it should be a fully-developed 1,200 – 1,300-word essay that analyzes how the two visual arguments reflect the concerns of the stakeholder and discuss visual rhetorical strategies that establish relationships between the two images. This draft should include an introduction and 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 you have analyzed, embedded into your draft.

This draft should include the following steps:

  1. An introduction that clearly identifies the stakeholder and its background (context), the controversial issue, and the thesis that presents the relationship between the two images and the stakeholder’s main argument, including how the two images represent the stakeholder’s goals, which encompass its interests, missions, and message
  2. An analysis of the rhetorical strategies used in both images, taking into consideration audience, message, purpose, rhetorical appeals, and/or rhetorical fallacies (if they exist), and pointing to specific details from the image to support your claim
  3. An integration of at least three sources into your visual analysis; one must be a source from the stakeholder, and the others may come from secondary sources about the stakeholder or about the images discussed.
  4. A conclusion that highlights the main points and considers forward-thinking research ideas for research/action
  5. A Works Cited page


As you perform your visual analysis of the two images, keep your focus on the relationship between the two images and the stakeholder’s main argument, including how the two images represent the stakeholder’s goals, which encompass its interests, missions, and message.

Evidence from your 3 sources should be smoothly integrated into your visual analysis, rather than presented as a tag on. In other words, your research should help to provide context and further support for your analysis and thesis.

Find an organizational pattern that advances your thesis. Use topic sentences to introduce each analysis component, followed by supporting details. Use transitions to move from one idea to another.

  • Ethos: appeal to credibility or morality
  • Pathos: appeal to the emotions

1. Choose one stakeholder from Project 1 as your focus for Project 2 and locate two of the stakeholder’s images (either static or dynamic), which represent the stakeholder’s goals. Include a description of the images. The stakeholder is QuestBridge. 2. Look at both of your images and consider their rhetorical situation. What are their purposes or goals, how are the images conveying and supporting these purposes or goals, and what audiences are the images trying to reach with their messages? Please include specific details about both images that help you answer the questions. The first image shows how students are motivated to get this kind of opportunity which excites others to join them. The audiences of the first image are parents and students because it helps them to apply to this program. The second image published by QuestBridge was the one with the kids having to show how important their future in education is. Many students do not get the opportunity to study in college or university after high school as they cannot afford the expenses and because they don’t really put in as much effort in high school which leads them to not applying on time or even not wanting to apply. So, it encourages students to focus in their education in their early life. 3. Reflect on how your images are created to convey the stakeholder’s goal. How do the visual design principles of the image, including the colors, text, and pictures (and whatever other design principles you recognize), work together to persuade the audience to agree with the stakeholder’s message? Professional text is printed on the images which implies how organized and proficient QuestBridge are, which also grabs the attention of parents and students which helps them go ahead to apply to this program. It also shows significance of the application process as well as how QuestBridge offers these kinds of grants to students and this can get them to get the support they need from different organizations and governmental grants institutions and have them to spread all around the country. Therefore, both images show the significance of studying and how important their future in education which supports QuestBridge’ goal. 4. Think about your images in terms of ethos, pathos, logos, and Kairos. Identify elements of each rhetorical appeal in both of your images. Rhetorical Appeal Appeal to Logos: How does the stakeholder use reason and logic in the image to appeal to its audience? Point to specific details. Appeal to Pathos: What ways does the stakeholder appeal to its audience’s emotion through the image? Point to specific details. Appeal to Ethos: How does the stakeholder use credibility, reputation, and/or morality appeals in the image to persuade its audience? Point to specific details. Appeal to Kairos: In what ways might the stakeholder use an appeal to timeliness to influence its audience? Point to specific details. Image 1 Image 2 The image shows that there is The image shows logos as to meaning to this application how there’s a meaning behind process, having to miss the due the kids’ faces and how they date would cost the student a express it in front of the camera lot.

Using the information, you have accumulated so far, explain how the two images you have chosen to support the goals of the stakeholder organization. Your answer should be at least 200 words. It is shown that both images are looking to go for the same objective, which is to influence more students to try and apply for this kind of application. No one should waste their time and show how serious and willing they are in getting in such a program. Both images helped visualize this goal by sending a message to the reader with the use of visual rhetorical appeals which is allusive to what is being inferred to. It is also significant to show other organizations that it is important for QuestBridge to get the support they need, whether it is financial funding or advertisements and public notice. QuestBridge would be working on making more students’ dreams come true by giving them this kind of opportunity and for them to cover the families’ expenses and have their child.
