You should format your report/analysis as an essay with the following elements:

A title for your essay

•An introduction of what you have chosen to analyze
•Clearly present the advertisement or cartoon in enough detail so the reader can relate it to your discussion
•Include a thesis statement of your overall assessment of the strength of the argument being presented in the ad/cartoon
•A discussion of what you feel carries the weight of the argument or claim
•Would the words alone work as an argument or do they need the imagery to be effective?
•Would the imagery alone present the argument or are words required to clarify it?
•How does visual imagery attempt to persuade in ways the words do not?
•A discussion of the critical analysis of the printed words
•Does the meaning or interpretation depend on implication, assumption, inferences?
•Is the claim (conclusion) apparent in the words?
•Is the evidence or premises "warranted"? Do they pass the "So what?" test?
•A discussion of the critical analysis of the imagery used
•Who is the intended audience?
•What is the claim being made? Does it claim something specific as desirable? Success? Beauty? Health? Speed?
•What is the goal? Is it intended to persuade you to take action or accept a belief?
•Would you consider the visual element to be more or less misleading than the words used?
•What strategic argument style is used for persuasion? (It may help to articulate the visual message into words to best identify the type of argumentation being used)
•A discussion of the persuasiveness
•Do you think the piece is persuasive?
•Would it convince a rational person?
•Would you consider the visual element to be more or less persuasive than the words used?
•Does it demonstrate a specific Ethos, Pathos and Logos?
•A discussion about any apparent logical problems
•Does the print or visual argument use deception or fallacies
•Could the piece be improved? How so?
•Summarize the main points of your discussion and relate them back to your thesis.
