How it works
Produce Examples of Each of the Three Types of Appeals to Reason
Read the background information below and watch the videos.
You’re welcome to look at the PDF links, too (these are optional).
Write an original example of each of the three appeals to reason. To complete this correctly, you will need to do all of the following:
Share the appeal itself (e.g. What did you do to persuade someone? What story or explanation did you give?)
Identify that appeal (e.g. Was it logos? Was it pathos? Was it ethos?)
Explain why it was that particular appeal? (For instance, if you shared a story and identified it as pathos, then explain why it was pathos.)
See my examples below.
If you can’t think of your own appeal for this assignment, you may find an example online but please include the URL/web address for where you got your appeal.
