Pathos is considered the easy way of getting someone to agree with your ideas because you are manipulating their emotions which leaves you with a weak argument. Kairos can be used in deciding when and where I place the important evidence in the essay so that it will give the strongest conviction. In order to have a strong argument, it must appeal to the readers logic and be supported with the credible evidence. Therefore I will minimize the amount of pathos I used and focus on logos and ethos while I construct the argumentative
Number four is titled “they can write clearly and persuasively and movingly” (p. 8). This paragraph is described as being able to touch, teach, and persuade people through your writing. I do think I lack this trait, but I think that my expected experience at Central and more importantly, my intersections course, will help me to become a better writer. I expect this to be because of the more intense writing I will do as compared to high school. Quality number six is something I know I must learn quickly to be successful here at Central.
It is not an end, but rather a continuation of my journey. If my writing at VBI can help one person feel accepted and a bit less lonely, if it motivates one person to unmute without fear of ridicule, if it puts one person on a redemptive path from shame to self-acceptance, then it is worthy. I’ve been told my ability to confidently deliver a speech, to challenge my opponent in debate, and to approach people with poise has inspired others to venture out into unchartered territory. And I’m ready to venture into new territory, too. My stuttering has inspired my dream of pursuing interdisciplinary studies to help change how we interact with the world with our
I decided to pursue option B of project three because I enjoy writing creatively and Kooser’s piece was very interesting to me. Upon starting this project, I was influenced by Kooser’s “The Wheeling Year.” I admire how he makes different stanzas to introduce different ideas and I try to mimic this technique. My text qualifies as creative nonfiction in its own right because I use my sense to create vivid descriptions, I use stanzas to separate my ideas, and I write not only about my “place” but also my thoughts, which allows me to not only tell, but show you a place that’s very special to me. I use very descriptive images in order to not only tell but show my special place. By carefully picking out the words I write, it allows the reader to picture my place how I see it.
In their Introduction to the “They Say /I Say” book, Gerald Graff and Cathy Brikenstein strongly believe that their templates will improve the reader’s writing skills. Graff and Brikenstein insist that writing is just like an activity we are used to do continuously, and if we follow certain process, we improve our writing and “help [our] writing become more original and creative.” (11) The authors also added that writers must give the opposing argument (they say) and then comes the thesis, which “should always be a response to the arguments of others.” (4) Personally, I agree with most of the points that the authors argued about. I personally found the templates the offered in the Introduction and in the first chapters helpful. In addition,
(should this sentence be at the start or oks lang here) I held a great admiration and respect for fanfiction authors. With the broadness of their imagination and their passion for the topic of their works, I was often starstruck with humans and our ability to do great things. The thought that some fanfiction writers are part of my peer group generated my dream of becoming an author. However, my imagination was narrow; or at least I thought
The author is trying to get the reader to share in this sense of pride and desire it in their own life. This could be considered persuasive. It persuades the reader to take a viewpoint on the pride they have within their life. After reading the piece you are left feeling motivated and inspired to find pride in your own life. Overall, this piece was very bold and enjoyable to read with its persuasion and
This not only paints a clear picture in the reader’s head, but can also help the reader be more sympathetic with the character, and use that kind of development, question, and philosophy in their own writing, or even their own life. Learn from these authors To conclude these thoughts, both Edgar Allan Poe and John Green, two experienced writers, are able to use different types of conflict to develop their characters in a realistic
In this snippet it shows Jacoby’s using her own personal event to demonstrate knowledge about the topic, to show that she has first-hand experience with the relating material. The reason why this is a strength it shows the author has a general understanding of the topic as well as debunking critics who may assume that she has no experience in the matter. According to The Longman Reader Ethos “Refers to a writer’s reliability or credibility” (683). This is needed when trying to persuade your audience, because readers will agree with your point of view if they think that you have some sort of credentials on the matter or
The reason for having advance knowledge increases general perception about things and acquiring certain critical information gives a better result in a workplace or social life. In order to get more knowledge, I would read books, newspapers and leading articles for the purpose of general knowledge. If I understand a country's workplace culture, I will be more sensitive towards certain people or a certain way things are done which is essential when working in a team. Moreover, I could make an appropriate advertisement that is suitable in that country. However, I should improve my English, which is my 2nd language because English is the official language in the most countries.
