1. A little practice with Ethos, Logos, and Pathos:
Open Undercover Parent.
Re-read looking for examples of ethos, logos and pathos. Highlight the examples you find, but color code them: green for ETHOS, blue for LOGOS, andlavender/purple for PATHOS.
Compare what you find with your partner.
2. Rhetorical Precis:
"A Rhetorical Précis, pronounced (pray-see), is a summary or abstract of a work. The Rhetorical Précis has a rigidly specific format.... It is important that you follow the format carefully. This is not an easy task. But it is a crucial step towards building critical reading ability...." (Oregonstate.edu)
