Overview

Part 2 asks you to formalize your Project 2 visual analysis by writing a 1,000 – 1,200-word essay that identifies a stakeholder’s argument that has been communicated through two of its visual images. Prior to this assignment, you have chosen a stakeholder (organization) and two of its images and created substantial content by answering guiding questions. This Part 2 assignment asks that you to more critically analyze the visual and rhetorical strategies this organization implements in its campaign and analyze how these visual arguments reflect the organization’s goals, which encompass its interests, missions, and message.

Skills & Strategies

This Part 2 assignment will help you to

  • determine a stakeholder’s goals, which encompass its interests. missions, and message
  • analyze further the rhetorical situation associated with the stakeholder’s two images
  • examine the rhetorical strategies used in the two images that support the stakeholder’s goals
  • substantiate your visual analysis with research
  • identify and develop organizational strategies that contribute to the effective delivery of information and presentation
  • construct an introduction and solid thesis that presents the relationship between the two images and the stakeholder’s goals
  • write a conclusion that highlights the main points and considers forward-thinking research ideas for research/action
  • cite sources according to the assigned requirements

Description (and Step by Step)

Part 2 should be a fully-developed 1,000 – 1,200-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

Al Nadabi 1 Qais Al Nadabi Ms. Lorie Jewell ENC 1102.50 17 February 2019 QUESTIONS 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. United Nations Security Council Figure 1 depicts a vast arid area where a water body stands. Herders are seated next to their flock of goats. A woman stands a few meters away looking over the arid area in deep thought. Figure 2 shows a vast area of land that is lush, green and cultivated, though the use of renewable energy. 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 goal of Figure 1 is to articulate the predicament faced by the Somali herders as they seek water for their flock. This image supports the need for the prevention of climate risk and thereby consequently, reducing threats to security. The goal of figure 2 on the other hand, is to emphasize other means upon which sustainability can be achieved regardless of the situation. This is depicted through the integration of renewable energy to combat climate change. The purpose is to depict similarly, the reduction of threats to security. The target audiences the images are trying to capture are members of the international community. 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? The goals the images are able to project as it pertains to the stakeholder’s goal include the need for stronger partnerships, as well as the need to reduce climate risk. The visual design principles Al Nadabi 2 in figure 1 such as color, pictures, and text are able to highlight the predicament in Somali, as the arid area and the impact of climate change is visible to the naked eye. In Figure 2, the picture, and the color easily project the difference between the two mages. While it is fairly lush and green in one, it is as dry and arid in another. The two images aligned are able to persuade the audience on the need for prompt action. 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 Image 1 Image 2 The green expanse of land, cultivated from the use of renewable energy appeals to the audience as they are able to recognize the vitality of embracing alternative solutions in light of climate change. The ability to comprehend the dynamics of climate It is hard to fathom how the change and what can be animals and the people alike done about it may appeal Appeal to Pathos: What ways does the are able to survive in an area to the emotions of the stakeholder appeal to its audience’s that is that dry. As such, this audience as they are able emotion through the image?

Point to the image are able to appeal specific details. to the audience as he draws his attention to how dire the situation is. Al Nadabi 3 Appeal to Kairos: In what ways might the stakeholder use an appeal to timeliness to influence its audience? Point to specific details. The mere thought of people and livestock suffering due to lack of sufficient food and water as it is depicted in the image, is enough to call for immediate action in a bid, to alleviate suffering or loss that is associated with climate change and sustainability achieved. The ability for renewable energy to transform the environment and guarantee sustainability as the image depicts is enough to appeal to the audience to take prompt action to embrace the new technology. Rhetorical appeal 1. Using the information you have accumulated so far, explain how the two images you have chosen support the goals of the stakeholder organization. Your answer should be at least 200 words. The stakeholder organization in question is the United Nations Security Council, where in light of climate change the organization has held that climate change is a security risk as it is in essence able to alter economies of nations. This in the end costs communities and nations dearly due to the negative consequences attached to climate change. Needless to say, alternative solutions such as the adoption of renewable energy, that are not only affordable but that may also be scaled in a way that upholds on sustainability through paving way for economies that are more resilient and cleaner. Figure 1 thereby draws attention to the need to ascertain that other communities need to come to terms with the need to embrace alternative sources of renewable energy in order so they can ameliorate on their conditions of living and similarly, the environment and the economy. Failure to do so may have an even worse impact. Figure 2, on the other hand, is able to project how beneficial alternative solutions such as renewable energy are and how their adoption may pave way for a more sustainable environment. Thus, while one image shows how detrimental climate change is and why there is need to embrace other renewable sources of energy, the other image highlights the benefits that are attached to embracing renewable sources of energy. Thus, the need for partnerships is understood at this juncture. 2. Take a screen shot of your two images and paste your two images here. Al Nadabi 4 Figure 1 Figure 2
