In written discourse, aspects of oral delivery or communication are part of persuasion and
are conveyed through punctuation—the use of dashes, commas, and periods to mimic pauses,

balance. As part of your argument, analyze some of the oral and visual aspects of a college or
university’s website or other digital and/or textual materials, and show how the analysis
supports (or contradicts) the ethical issues you’re exploring. Be sure to identify these explicitly
as aspects or features of oral and visual communication.
You will work in small groups/teams to offer written and verbal feedback on essays
throughout the assignment.
