Discuss Visual Rhetoric for First Year Symposium presentations
Explain the purpose of visual rhetoric
Examples of good and bad visual rhetoric
Using this template, I would like for you to brainstorm some ideas. To help you do this, use these questions as a guide. Just the simple act of writing down all your thoughts and ideas about a topic can be inspiring when you see one idea, it can make you think of many more! On the back of your handout, write your ideas down!
1.) Think of your project topic from various perspectives; that of an adult, college student, professor, a historian, etc.whatever new perspective brings fresh ideas to your topic.
2.) Draw a huge spider web on the back of your handout with your posters topic in the middle. Then write all the words/concepts/ideas you can think of associated with your poster topic all through the web. Later you can arrange these words into related themes and use them to come up with a great poster title or a focus area for your poster.
