As the next election draws near and our TVs are littered with political commercials, these infographics might invite a new avenue of discussion while practicing analyzing visual text and perhaps preparing to turn research into an infographics.
As a reminder from the first post:
Here are the discussion points used by Brett Vogelsinger, a teacher in Doylestown, PA:
- Which of these was the best infographic and why? (when looking at multiple)
- How does the writer try to engage an audience, even an audience who may not initially care about the topic?
- Is the text or the visual design most important in each of these? How does the use of color and white space affect your ability to focus on the main message of the infographic? How is font size used to emphasize certain facts?
- Does the infographic make a claim or develop an argument? If so, how can you tell?
