Today is January 10, 2011. We started class with our Grammar sentence. The sentence for this weak is “my friend alex plays tennis”. Homework for tonight was: looking for examples of ethos, pathos, and logos in magazines, newspapers, and Google images. We need to bring in quality examples of each of them. We also need to explain what appeal is being used. Smith suggests considering color, amount of text, text style, amount of image, type of images, people featured, people’s expressions, what you are encouraged to think or do, and how it uses specific appeal of ethos, pathos, and logos. Smith stated that we would be doing CSAP training to improve our scores from last year. Smith then made us write about a time where we were compelled to buy something and what convinced us to buy it. We discussed some of the convincing factors involved in some of our purchases. Notes about The Rhetorical Triangle came next. The triangle consists of ways a speaker can persuade and appeal to the audience in three different areas: ethos (ethical appeals), pathos (emotional appeals), and logos (logical appeals).
