The modes of persuasion have long been used by public speakers to effectively deliver a speech. The TED talk “Asia’s Rise -- how and when” by Hans Rosling is no exception to this and Rosling utilizes ethos, pathos and logos in a compelling manner that draws in the attention of the audience. In this TED talk Rosling indicates that after many years of Asia being dominated by the western world, Asia will regain the power it once had in the world. Statistics is used as a visual aide and they show how India and China compares with UK and USA in the last 200 years. Using past statistics to develop a trend, a prediction is made as to when Asia will overtake the Western World.
Matter of Class During the book Class Matters we read about people 's perspectives of class and how they feel about it. Just in between 2 chapters you can see how people feel about their class and the improvement they want to do to reach a higher class. In chapter 4 Mae tells us about her living with her family and in the house she lived in didn’t have any plumbing inside and at times they didn’t have anything to eat, so her half-brother had to go out and kill some squirrels to eat. On the other hand on chapter 13 it talks about every class and how people have good successful businesses, and yet their businesses come to a point where they crash. For theses people it might be a hard change from either going to lower to higher or higher to lower class.
In this paper an article “pedagogic voice: student voice in teaching and engagement pedagogies” has been critiqued. It has been observed that as of late, all through the world, a neoliberal reframing of instructive arrangements has offered ascend to an expanding concentrate on estimation and correlation based results for schooling. It is contended by Baroutsis et al (2015) that pedagogic and student voices are imperative in teaching, as they have found a higher contribution with students when the idea is utilised. On the other hand, this worldview of schooling has assisted to contract the visualisation and determinations of training, whilst likewise "taming" as well as confining conceivably imaginative pedagogies through responsibility structures.
“The Catcher in the Rye” was written to encourage communities in the 1950’s to think about society and the way it was being portrayed to the teenagers in the area. This book, coming from the inside of Holden Caulfields’ head, gave parents and other adults a good guess about how the societal standards are shaping their teens minds to think. In this book, Holden is kicked out of school for lack of effort, thus being the fourth school he has been kicked out of, Holden decides that he does not want to go straight home to give his family disappointing news once again. Instead, Holden decides to take his time on his way home. He stayed at hotels, went to bars, ordered a prostitute, met new people and caught up with some old friends.
Admiral William H. Mcraven addressed the 2014 graduating class at the University of Austin, Texas with more than eight thousand students in attendance. The address given by Adm. Mcraven touched the hearts of millions from all around the world by his inspirational message of how one person can change the world if they simply helped change the lives of ten others in their lifetime. I chose this speech for my rhetorical analysis because of the simple message it portrays, how helping a few can eventually help many. Adm. Mcraven’s address was especially effective for his audience, much due to how he relates to the students by reminiscing of the day he graduated from UT while providing advice for young college graduates preparing to begin their adult lives.
I feel that the speech that you chose was very unique. Robin Williams was such an amazing person and he truly connects with the audience every single time he speaks. I agree on how important it is for a speaker to maintain eye contact at all times to demonstrate respect and that he put effort at learning the words and at the same time being extemporaneous. Confidence is also a very important factor and Williams showed it throughout the whole speech. You did a wonderful job, just remember to include the main points and how he managed to pass from one point to another.
Last August I remembered how much I truly despised returning to school at summer’s end when I was a kid. I remembered how I would look at the calendar hanging on the wall and watch helplessly as the remaining days marched past, the knowledge that the good ones were persistently running out, until one fateful morning I would wake up and there would be a yellow school bus with my name on it coming up the road. No, I wasn’t returning to school, but it’s the closest feeling I could compare to how I felt August 6th, Jon Stewart’s final day as host of the Daily Show. When former Daily Show correspondent and current Nightly Show host Larry Whilmore announced to his audience that Jon was leaving the Daily Show, I nearly broke my remote changing channels,
. Over these past few weeks, we have read and analyzed the writings of several authors who discuss the topics of intelligence and education, and how knowledge can lead to freedom in various ways. Two of the authors we’ve reviewed are Carol Dweck and Howard Gardner. While each author researched different aspects of intelligence in education, both authors support the idea that having at least some autonomy in education is beneficial to students. These are notable scientists, and while I would never presume to discredit their research, my personal experiences with student-guided education have led me to believe that the way these theories are put into practice often harm students rather than benefit them.
