Ethos, Pathos, Logos

The purpose of my Wakelet essay is to provide examples of the three modes of persuasion through six videos: two for ethos, two for pathos, and two for logos. In order to assess my understanding on the three modes of persuasion in rhetorical arguments, I will find six videos of speeches, two appealing to each of the three modes, and write a one paragraph description for each video explaining how and why it is an example of that mode. These videos were found through searching by category or from my prior knowledge. Some were speeches I have heard from the past and some are new. There are videos that may have been a well known speech that I have heard or read in the past that I thought would be a good example of ethos, pathos, or logos. Oral rhetoric is one of the most powerful modes of rhetoric with how it can express all three of the modes of persuasion.
