Book: Rhetorical Visions: Reading and Writing in a Visual Culture

VR def.- "describe[s]how images persuade and argue" (4).

Does the textbook describe (or teach)the reader/audience how images persuade and argue?

I would say yes, beacuse as a reader for comp. students, it provides text and images that show or describe how images are used to argue and persuade.--that sounds like a duh, but hear me out.

  • The textbook uses headers to indicate important sections
  • the page is divided into multi-modal ensambles which direct the reader to navigate the messages on the page.
  • It includes tons of images and photographs to show how images themselves convey their own arguments.
