The lectures you have reviewed this week will come in handy when you begin working on the articles for Essay 1 this week, so I want to make sure you reviewed them carefully. (Review Lecture: Rhetorical Analysis)

For now, I just want you to reflect a little bit on what you have read so far. Please answer the following questions:

  1. Do you have any previous experience with rhetorical analysis? What did you do? (no worries if it is nothing).
  2. Think of one time in real life that you have seen the use of pathos, ethos, or logos? (think news, speeches or commercials). What was it? Do you view it differently, now that you know a little more about it.
  3. Did you prefer the power point presentation or the videos? Which helped you understand better? Why?

Remember to be specific in your answers.


  • Please respond in a full paragraph (5-7 sentences) for question 1 and 2. Question 3 can be a short answer (2-3 sentences).
