This essay looks at another issue: Museums and Money. In 2013 the Detroit Institute of Art faced a major decision. Today in class we will read/watch two articles (links will be on Blackboard), as well as look at the Facebook comments on one of those articles—it is linked on Blackboard, too–and then, using the information in them, you will write a rough draft of a persuasive piece arguing that the art in the collection should be sold off to help pay the city’s debts, or should be kept in the museum. Your piece should be about 500-750 words long, and it should include at least the following (an A essay will go further): a quote from each of the two articles, cited in MLA format (include the Works Cited list at the end of the persuasive essay you write); a Facebook comment from a reader supporting your position, as well as one opposing your position (comments should be cited per MLA format, too—check dianahacker.com/pocket or Purdue OWL for formatting), and your own opinion, clearly expressed and supported with evidence from your readings. This is a more formal piece than your response, so use the third person rather than the first. Your audience is citizens of the city of Detroit—people who have the power to act on your comments to influence the city’s decision. Be impassioned! But don’t be a troll. Argue the feelings as well as the facts, but avoid insults and rage. They are not effective tools anyway. 

All persuasive pieces include what journalists call the “on the other hand” paragraph—a portion of the essay which refers to the opposing viewpoint. That’s because your opposition is going to bring up their side, in any case, and if you acknowledge their side, then you can shoot it down (elegantly, of course). Like this:

In an essay about global warming which argues that it is indeed caused my human beings, your OTOH paragraph could say: “Some people believe that global warming is a natural phenomenon, not caused by people, and would be happening anyway, so why should we conserve fossil fuels and use alternative energy? But we really have nothing to lose by reducing carbon pollution and learning to use more wind and solar. These new methods will create jobs, and when the fossil fuels are exhausted, we will transition smoothly to the new energies.” See? You confront the opposing side, rather than ignoring their case. 

· ETHICAL: Identify relevant ethical issues and follow ethical principles

· DISCOVERY: Distinguish between personal beliefs and evidence.

write an essay about this:  https://politicalcartoons.com/sku/224390/ 

and follow the instruction below 

Purpose: 

 The purpose of this assignment is to interpret a political cartoon by analyzing how the cartoonist uses 

both visual and verbal elements and techniques to make an argument.  The cartoon must address a current 

technology topic and issue.   

The Assignment:  

Write a 3-4 page essay that analyzes a political cartoon argument.  In your analysis, include 

3-4 strongest visual and verbal techniques the cartoonist uses and connect this to how these tools appeal to the 

strongest rhetorical device.  The techniques and rhetorical appeals are explained on the handout “Political 

Cartoon Analysis Guide.”   

Make sure to choose a cartoon that has sufficient visual and verbal elements.  

MLA Format/Sources: 

The essay must follow MLA format, typed, double-spaced, [check settings in 

paragraph layout—use double space and not multiple, set “before and after” settings to 0/0, use 12font Times 

New Roman and 1” margins.  For this paper there is only one source:  the political cartoon.  Also on the works 

cited page, the cartoon should be included.  

Integrating Evidence:  

When integrating evidence from the cartoon to support and to prove the reason (the 

main point) you must use a signal phrase (the cartoonist’s name—you may use the last name since the full name 

is already used in the introduction, include quotation marks around actual words taken from the cartoon, cite it 

(“Title of the Cartoon), and explain how and why this evidence proves how the technique is used to appeal to 

the strongest rhetorical appeal and thus the cartoonist’s thesis statement. When adding another quote or 

paraphrase from the cartoon to prove your element choice, insert an appropriate transition.  Avoid simply 

dumping in evidence.  There should only be two quotes or paraphrases in a 

paragraph.  

Political Cartoon Analysis Guide         

The rhetorical purpose of a political cartoon is to persuade an audience toward the cartoonist’s position on an issue.  An issue is a question that people dispute over or take different sides on.  Cartoonists use both visual and verbal techniques to persuade an audience of their thesis statement (their response to an issue question).  A rhetorical analysis of a political cartoon is interpreting how both visual and verbal techniques are used to appeal to pathos, ethos, and/or logos in order to persuade the audience.    The classical philosopher Aristotle defined rhetoric as “the ability to see the available means of persuasion.”  Aristotle defined three kinds of rhetoric:  pathos, ethos, and logos.     

Pathos:  This is a persuasive appeal to the sympathies, values, beliefs, and emotions of the audience.  Appeals to pathos are accomplished through visual images as well as through verbal.  How do the techniques the cartoonist uses appeal to the audience’s values, beliefs, and emotions?  What techniques does the cartoonist use to appeal to readers’ emotions, sympathies, and values?  This is an appeal to manipulate the emotions of the audience.  

Ethos:   This is an appeal to the character of the cartoonist.  It refers to the cartoonist’s trustworthiness and credibility.   The audience must perceive the cartoonist as knowledgeable, trustworthy, and fair.  How well does the cartoonist persuade readers that he/she is knowledgeable, reliable, credible, and trustworthy? What techniques are use to appeal to ethos? 

Logos:  This is an appeal based on sound reason.  It refers to the quality of the message itself—to its clarity in asserting a thesis or point.  Logical appeals state facts and show how facts are interrelated.   

Techniques/Tools Used to Persuade an Audience    

 Symbolism 

Cartoonists use simple objects, or symbols to represent a larger concept or idea. For example, cartoonists use animals, buildings, and things, which are generally or universally recognized.  Cartoonists assume that readers already know what the symbols represent.  For example, the donkey for Democrats, an elephant for Republicans.  What do the symbols in your political cartoon stand for?  What ideas do the symbols embody? 

Exaggeration 

Caricatures are distortions or exaggerations of the physical features of someone or something in order to make a point (thesis).  When you study a cartoon, look for any characteristics that seem overdone or overblown.  Facial characteristics and clothing are some of the most commonly exaggerated characteristics.   

Labeling  

Labels are sometimes used to identify important features.  Cartoonists often label objects or people to make it clear exactly what they stand for.  Does the label make the meaning of the object clearer?  

Ananalogy

 is a comparison between two unlike things that share some characteristics.  By comparing a complex issue or situation with a more familiar one, cartoonists can help their readers see it in a different light.  Decide what the cartoon’s main analogy is.  What two situations does the cartoon compare?  

Irony

 is the difference between the ways things are and the way things should be, or the way things are expected to be.  Cartoonists often use irony to express their opinion on an issue. When you look at a cartoon, see if you can find any discrepancy (differences) in the situation the cartoon depicts.  If you can, think about what point the irony might be intended to emphasize.  Does the irony help the cartoonist express his or her opinion (thesis) more effectively? 

Colors  

The color choices cartoonists make are more than aesthetic decisions; colors have been known to affect (and reflect) a person’s mood or emotions PATHOS] current style trends and cultural beliefs and symbols.  Refer to the handout on colors.
