Graphics should be included in a paper when they enhance the information presented. Including graphics just for â€œeye candyâ€ may in some situations help hold the audienceâ€™s interest, but this type of graphic isnâ€™t appropriate for formal academic writing.
- In your first post, present a graphic that you will include on the cover page of your final portfolio project. It must directly relate to the overall topic of your portfolio. If itâ€™s NOT one you created, provide a citation for it. Explain how this graphic will help enhance your thesis. You may not use a copyright protected image without permission.
- Respond to two classmatesâ€™ posts, critiquing their graphics. Would slight modifications make the graphics more useful? Are the graphics clear and easy to understand?
