In our image driven world, it is critical to educate students on the importance of visual argumentation, especially since listening and viewing are part of the Common Core and the PARCC. I teach this concept throughout the year and use this project as a culminating assignment where the students can demonstrate mastery in reading, analyzing and presenting a key issue or theme in their self-selected non-fiction reading choice. It is fabulous way to start conversations, to encourage students to read non-fiction (from their own peers nonetheless). Plus it is relatively easy to grade and students honestly enjoy the challenge. It appears to be deceptively simple in the directions but the students tell me once they start to search images and to create am argument, they recognize the challenge and power images create. I LOVE THE RESULTS!!!
