Read about ethical (ethos), logical (logos) and emotional (pathos) appeals and how to evaluate them as a reader.
See: Exercise 5-1, pg. 57: Read this exercise that starts with “Elderspeak….” and follow the instructions carefully, identifying the type of appeal used in each sentence for which a choice is given.
Assignment: Just write out the answers for each sentence. You are not being asked to write an essay.
