27th October 2015 Education Is The Key
Education is an important necessity to have in life. However, education is not easily attainable or in the reach of everyone’s hands. Not everyone has the access or the time to go to school and sit in class. Khan Academy is an online program made to help students learn new material easier while being able to do it on their own schedule and needs. It helps students who are slow learners, all the way to adults who need to refresh themselves on certain subjects.
In "Lets use video to reinvent education", a TED talks by Salman Khan, he states that using video to teach education is a different strategy that would help many students around the world. …show more content…
The audience for this is anybody with or getting an education. Khan’s purpose for this piece of work is informing the audience about a new way to learn math. A way student can learn at home the material that they did not understand in their class. This is helpful because everyone is different. Some students understand the basic material but struggle with the more complex work. They can focus out what they need to work on and practice on that instead of doing stuff they already know. Students can go at their own pace, that way if they are a slow learner they can go slow and the more fast learners can go faster. It is much more convenient for them because not everyone can go to school. For instance, if a student has to help out his family work and cannot go to school, he can go on Khan Academy and learn the material at night. Khan’s argument fits the audience well because the audience understands the importance of education, and also understands that sometimes there are situations that don’t allow us to go to class and learn. Khan gives an example of how he helped his peers and gives the audience statistical information and results given from a school that used Khan Academy. He also gives evidence with the student’s grades to show that it has worked on students already. Khan uses logos when he gives the audience statistical information of the students grades. This evidence is representative and effective because it is real data from students work. Khan uses ethos by persuading the audience that he is reliable and trustworthy by using facts to back up his claims. He also uses real examples for them to understand. He also has an education, helping him sound credible as well. Lastly Khan uses pathos by giving them funny examples like of his cousins wanting to learn from videos rather than him, and more happy emotions when he shows that students are succeeding better while using Khan

Past leaders such as Andrew Jackson, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, and Marc Antony are evidence that society does not reward morality and good character in leadership. Society is drawn to leaders that have good rhetoric, propaganda, and charismatic personalities, and society supports them despite their immorality. Society is concerned about stability more than the morality of their leaders and will support immoral leaders in times of crisis to provide stability. In history there have been multiple leaders that have used rhetoric, propaganda and charismatic personalities to gain power, despite their morals.
Kathryn Stockett, the author of The Help uses imagery to help the reader better comprehend the meaning of the passage. As the reader reads along in the passage reading about little Miss Skeeter, “Munching on peanuts, sorting through the pieces spread out on the table, a storm [raging] outside (Stockett 77). Through this imagery that the author provides the reader is instantly transformed into the world of little Miss Skeeter as she is sitting down by Constantine on a dark stormy night doing a puzzle. The reader can hear the crunch of the peanuts and smell the rain coming from outside as they read the passage. Stockett also uses diction to contribute to the imagery of the passage.
Pathos would not be the most adequate for "Hello". Pathos is focused on emotions, however, "hello" does not reach most to emotions. It may be seen as a respectful act to some individuals. The elders were raised to say "hello" to any individual that they saw or passed along their destination. For instence, in the latin culture it is of good manners to greet any one with "hello", but it would be considered disrespectful if one just strolled right by without greeting.
In his article “Ratcheting Up the Rhetoric” (NY Times, 9/3/15) Charles M. Blow, asserts that recent accusations and opposition against the Black Lives Matter movement can be attributed to Americans unwilling to accept the uncomfortable reality of their racist society. Blow follows his claim with various statements made by the media accusing Black Lives Matter of being a “hate group”, examines the “concerted effort to defame and damage” the movement, and cites the public’s desperation to continue denying the truth of rampant police brutality and ingrained racism in America. Blow writes this article highlighting these wrongful attacks on Black Lives Matter in order to destroy the image of a violent “hate group” that the media has painted in society’s
A Dream for the Nation Michaelangelo Landgrave and Alex Nowrasteh (2017), a doctoral student in political science and an immigration policy analyst, argue in their informative article The DREAMer Incarceration Rate that DREAMers are less crime-prone than Native-born Americans. Landgrave’s and Nowrasteh’s (2017) purpose is to insist that Congress should expand the parameters of a future legalization for DREAMers. They employ logos, ethos, as well as juxtaposition, in order to convey to their readers the idea that DREAMers are less crime-prone than Native-born Americans. In their article, Landgrave and Nowrasteh (2017) employ the use of credibility of the speaker.
In between the middle of his essay, another tool that he utilizes extensively is repetition. In paragraph 16 through 25, shows the clearest form of repetition in which he uses in his essay. In each of these paragraphs either the first word or the first sentences contains the word “illiterate.” His repetition of the word “illiteracy” is used to create almost like it is a chronic disability. That these people are no longer in control of their life or actions and are helpless to change their path.
The main point of this article, in my opinion, is summed up on page ninety four. “A foundation and critical challenge for the Emerging church will be teaching people that they are the church and that they do not simply attend or go to one.” When the focus is brought to the Church as a building there seems to be a bigger issue. WE become more worried about the structure of the church and the materialistic things that come with the make-up of a church instead of what is truly important. To help further understand this Kimball provides the reader with valuable information, “However, the word Church was used (in scriptures) primarily to describe the followers of Jesus.”
The rhetorical appeal of the word "hello" is ethos. Hello is a word that society says everyday to greet someone and to meet people. " Hello" or "hi" is probably the most common word society utilizes to start a conversation or communication. "Hello" is an ethos word because it is a word that society is supposed to have confidence saying it between each other. There is supposed to be confidence saying "hello" because it is the word everyone is supposed to use to communicate, and it would also be rude to not answer if someone says hello to someone else.
Abstract In the contemporary capitalist society, the marketing of higher education adopts a highly capitalist-focused rhetoric, with commercials promoting students’ choices in favour of specific educational establishments for financial and not intellectual reasons. Educational institutions use various methods and techniques of persuasion to frame the audience’s beliefs and values in favour of certain educational choices. In connection with pervasive presence of propaganda techniques in marketing, this paper presents a visual and rhetorical analysis of higher education print advertisements’ analysis. This analytical study is intended to show how marketers of higher education reinforce problematic representations that can be read as discriminatory
Around the world, people are affect by sex trafficking everyday. This is a touchy subject that is not talked about often. A YouTube Channel called “collapsefilms” attempts to display what sex trafficking is. While the advertisement aims to spread awareness of sex trafficking, it is problematic because it fails to show the whole truth of what sex trafficking actually consists of, uses stereotypical white actors, it fails to show hard facts, and it is not clear in its overall message.
Rhetoric as a Major Subject in Education Argument, as Jay Heinrichs says, surrounds us. The study and practice of argument, rhetoric, once a major component of any well-rounded scholar’s education, has begun to be phased out of most curriculums today. To eliminate the studies of such a skill, a skill needed so often, is an ignorant move on the education board’s part. Rhetoric, the basis of almost all communication skills, should be reintroduced as a core credit in a student’s education. If recognized, argument can be found in almost every interaction—people and animals or even inanimate objects utilize argument regularly.
Sanders supports his argument with the appeal of ethos by validating the fact that he is a college professor and sees students versus learners all the time. For instance, Sanders says “I see this [students being afraid of being wrong] most often when students turn in written papers (Sanders 4). By mentioning his first-hand account he is building is authority and trustworthiness on the subject at hand. Finally, Sanders appeals to pathos when he involves emotions and presents his invitation to students to become a learner. He addresses the reader as “you” to form the basic relationship.
In the article, The World Might be Better Off Without College for Education, written by Bryan Caplan, explains how people do not apply what they learned in college into their actual jobs. He mainly focuses his argument on people who are deciding if they want to go to college or not because he is expressing if going to college is actually worth the money being spent. Through the use of rhetorical strategies like testimony, statistics, exemplification, and authority they help the audience have a clearer understanding of his argument. Throughout the article Caplan uses testimony to prove to high schoolers that a lot of people do not apply what they learn in college to their jobs.
Imagine blowing up a balloon, with every exhale of breath the balloon gets bigger. Similar to a balloon, with every year that passes grades inflate. In “Grade Inflation Gone Wild” by Stuart Rojstaczer, he discusses how the grading system has changed over the years. Rojstaczer’s overall purpose is to increase awareness of grade inflation and persuade his audience to take action. He argues that “changes in grading have had a profound influence on college life and learning” (2).
It shouldn’t matter how we choose to learn the lecture, material, or lesson, but as long as we understand the concept to the fullest capacity can fit. According to Dr. Wu, “To change behavior, it 's important to give children brief and powerful messages several times and consistently” (Wu), as he explains how the child 's brain is still developing and needs brief and powerful messages consistently. Which theater is the perfect remedy for what Dr. Wu is explaining. Everyday people walk by, not noticing the small things that make up life and so it 's easy to take things for granted. The importance of education is to empower one’s mind of knowledge but does it matter the process of how you achieve that?
