read chapter 8 pages 164-178 and pages 646-648 in the files
Directions: Read the textbook pages 645-648; pay special attention to the two visuals. Choose one visual (map or table) you find more interesting in terms of content and design. Write an extended paragraph (10-12 sentences) discussing the following aspects:
***Be sure to refer to the visual by name.
– Visual’s content: describe what it shows and explain what the visual tells readers. How do languages other than English reflect the history of the United States? What argument is the visual making?
– Visual’s design: which aspect of the visual do you find most effective. Why? Elaborate.
