Think about the following, an then answer in a well thought out paragraph.

  • What does it mean to be independent OF something?
  • What is the most important component of persuasion?
  • What do you know about Thomas Jefferson?
  • Why was the Declaration of Independence written?
  • Why is the Declaration of Independence important to us now?
  • Write a good paragraph discussing your thoughts.


  • is the use of language to communicate effectively.  Politicians, advertisements, and persuasive essays all use rhetoric to help get their point across.  Rhetoric involves three audience appeals: logos, pathos, and ethos.  From ancient Greece to the late 19th century, it was a central part of Western education, filling the need to train public speakers and writers to move audiences to action with arguments.  However, rhetoric is definitely a part of our daily culture.
  • The founding fathers are known for their persuasive speeches and political documents that call for action.  The rhetoric they used helped to persuade congress to go to war with Britain and to persuade the colonists to keep fighting and to not give up. These men were effective speakers and writers!

Reading persuasion When you begin to examine the rhetoric of a piece of writing, you will look for:

  • tone
  • diction
  • Ethos/ ethical appeal
  • Pathos/emotional appeal
  • Logos/logical appeal
  • repetition
  • parallelism
  • alliteration
  • assonance
  • rhetorical questions
  • figurative langage
  • analogies
  • allusions
  • anaphora
  • anecdotes

Logos, Pathos, Ethos

  • Logos is the use of evidence such as facts, statistics and examples to support
  • your point. For example, if you are trying to convince someone that California
  • needs to put more money towards education and less into the construction of
  • prisons, you would tell them that California is first in the nation in prison
  • spending and 41st in education spending. Of course, this is why approximately
  • 80% of all public schools are in need of repair, let alone more credentialed
  • teacher and current textbooks.
  • • Pathos is the emotional power of language that appeals to the reader’s needs,
  • values and attitudes. A writer often relies on pathos to motivate their reader to
  • take some type of emotion. Consider the following pitches for a man’s cologne:
  • Words such as bold, power, and in charge, appeal to those qualities many men
  • want to cultivate, so they will be motivated to buy this product. Like an
  • advertisement, you must use emotional words and phrases to strengthen your
  • message. If you believe in legalization of marijuana, you might use words such
  • as liberty, herb, and responsibility. If you favor the criminilization of
  • marijuana, you would use words such as menace, narcotic and irresponsible.
  • • Ethos is credibility or reliability. You cannot expect people to accept your
  • viewpoint unless they believe that you know what you are talking about! Fr
  • example, “Four out of five dentists recommend using BRITE toothpaste.” After
  • all, dentists should know! Another way to appear trustworthy is by presenting a
  • logical, reasoned argument that takes opposing viewpoints into account. Also,
  • do not rely too much upon emotion or else you may lose credibility with your
  • audience.
