A Portfolio Assignment


Visual Rhetoric (and the Visual Rhetoric Rewrite)

  • For the next several weeks, you’ll be assigned a Portfolio Task every week.
  • Your first Portfolio assignment was your Definition/Categorical argument.
  • The next (and the only one not directly connected to your Research Position Paper) is the Visual Rhetoric Analysis.
  • You’ll receive provisional analysis of your first draft, then post a Visual Rhetoric Rewrite, which you’ll add to your Portfolio at the end of the semester.
