Part 4: Create a Visual Rhetoric Campaign Poster (25 points-group work)
In google docs, or a media of your choice which you share with me, work with no more than 2 other people to create a campaign poster that compels others to share an interest and concern in your social issue. Your poster MUST have an extended metaphor that works to identify the victims (birds), the perpetrators (combine), those working to find solutions (Mac), and the solutions (fishing and laughter) During the presentation which you will give during the final hour, you will explain the social issue and explain and analyze the metaphor that you and your group created for your poster.
