In essence this essay is an argument about whether a poster is an effective image. To introduce or conclude the paper, develop a thesis statement that shows the reader what your overall evaluation of the poster is.
The analysis that follows should detail the criteria you use to make your judgment. You should, however, avoid arguing about or with the movement’s central goals or ideas—you are simply evaluating the job the image does to present those ideas. You should also include a clear and precise description of the poster that gives the reader a clear mental image of the poster. The description typically comes in or immediately after your introductory paragraph. Beyond considering the issues you have read about in this course, you may want to consider the following:
Identify the main goals of the movement. What is the movement protesting? Who is the audience (the opposition, the media, fellow protestors)? What argument does the poster make? How do the visual elements support that argument?
