Way began hanging up poster boards around the classroom containing various statements. We were put into groups by counting to eight. The remaining time in class we spent analyzing, discussing, and in my group’s case debating, the statements. One of the statements was, “A nation of sheep begets a government of wolves.” While reading through the quotes, my group found them to have deeper meanings that can be interpreted in a variety of different ways. We spent lots of time conversing about what we should actually write on the poster. By the end of the activity we all just hurriedly wrote down our own opinions. This activity took all of the remaining class time. But Mrs. Way was quick to remind us of our two hour period today. As students’ eyes drifted toward the clock, Mrs. Way swiftly regained our attention. One of the worksheets that we had picked up at the beginning of class was part of our homework. Mrs. Way promised it was easy, then explained for the assignment all we had to do was highlight the words from Act 1 in the definition part of the packet. As the bell rung all thirty one of us made our way out the

Bilingualism is the ability to communicate in two different languages. Bilingual education is the use of two different languages in classroom instruction. According to the Encyclopedia of Children’s Health, and many other researchers, “languages are learned the easiest during a child’s youngest years. Therefore, when a child is growing up in a bilingual home or is receiving bilingual education, can easily speak both languages. Children who grow up in a household where two languages are spoken, usually acquire both languages simultaneously. Although their ability quality and skill of each language may be somewhat slower than a child that is
Have you ever needed to be persuade someone, to change or make them understand the positive viewpoint on the situation given? Within Patrick Henry’s “ speech to the Virginia Convention” he persuaded colonists to go to war with Britain by using these rhetorical techniques, imagery, repetition, rhetorical question, and appeal to ethos. Using such techniques, to either paint a picture of why to go to war, enforce an idea, for them to question their own ideas, and to be convinced that the Speaker is the one they should be listening to.
In “Just Walk on By” by Brent Staples, the author uses pathos and ethos to get across his message on how subconscious racism and prejudice is still prevalent in today’s society. His main focus is the stereotypes, and the struggles as a result of those stereotypes, that black men have to deal with in society consistently that can affect daily life in ways that many don’t tend to consider.
On May 12, 1962, General Douglas MacArthur addressed the cadets at the West Point Military Academy in his speech Duty, Honor, Country, during the reception for the Sylvanus Thayer Award. This award is given to an “…outstanding citizen of the United States whose service and accomplishments in the national interest exemplify personal devotion to the ideals expressed in the West Point motto, duty, honor, country.” As the one receiving this prestigious award, General MacArthur truly exemplified these values as he had acquired the rank of General of the Armed Forces while serving in World War I, World War II, and the Korean War. Within the speech Duty, Honor, Country, MacArthur utilizes logos, pathos, and ethos in order to appeal to the cadets

The three approach types are ethos, pathos, and logos. Ethos is when you have chosen your approach which is the tone of the paper. Pathos is when you have your emotional appeal for your paper. This to me is the most important part of the paper. Logo is your source or logic providing evidence of your rebuttal.
The article for “Aveeno Active Naturals,” advertises their lotion through extensive use of ethos, pathos and logos. With the use of various techniques and phrasing, they favorably present their product and provide evidence to convince a customer to buy their lotion. They use ethos by featuring the widely known actress, Jennifer Aniston. They extend their credibility by writing on the label,“dermatologist recommendations” and being a famously known, well-working brand. They use pathos through selective phrases such as “Naturally beautiful results,” the promise of skin thats soft to the touch and the use of this lotion will be consumingly delightful. Aveeno uses logos to attractive the customer, by promoting “healthy-looking” legs and natural
Throughout history, rhetoric has been used by great orators to persuade a people to believe one thing or take action on another. Aristotle, a Greek philosopher, proved that a respectable argument must use ethos, pathos, and logos. Patrick Henry’s “give me liberty” speech is well known to have inspired many people to take up arms against the British and start the American Revolution. He used ethos by proving he would die for his country, saying “give me liberty or give me death,” pathos by explaining how poorly America is treated and how they are seen as inferiors, and also logos by stating all the atrocities Britain had done to America (“Patrick”). These same values must be applied in modern debate to vanquish the other side, and it is in these
How often do we use social media? Teenagers spend at least nine hours a day on social networking sites. That’s thirty percent of all time spent online dedicated to social media. These numbers are constantly increasing every day. Many of the tweets and posts that we see on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter use arguments and we don’t even realize it. All of these arguments use ethos, pathos, and logos to make a point. Let’s examine how these three concepts are used on social media.
In an article titled ‘Wounds will never heal’ published in The Sunday Mail, 18 March, p. 42, author Max argues that Australia should not have signed an agreement for regional co-operation and a closer relationship between the Australian and Japanese militaries (Venables 2007, p. 42).
In this essay, I will closely examine the role of ethos, pathos, and logos as they were utilized in the 1992 Presidential Debate video clip. Throughout Clinton and Bush’s debates, they used the three options of persuasion effectively and discretely; however, it is evident that out of the three ways of persuasion, the candidates used ‘pathos’ because of the content they were providing. It was apparent that Bill Clinton was more prepared to display forms of persuasion than George H.W. Bush was because Clinton had prior experience dealing with lower income people. In the upcoming paragraphs, I will explain and analyze how each candidate made use of the three forms of persuasion: logos, pathos, and ethos.
