9 Persuasive Techniques
Logical Appeal – build a well reasoned argument based on facts and evidence. 90% of all criminals are repeat offenders so why let them out? Emotional Appeal – attempt to arouse audience feelings. Use loaded words. Imagine you are alone in a dark and cold room with the smell of death in the air. Ethical Appeal – directed at audience’s sense of morality – right and wrong. Do you think it is fair a doctor can steal your mother’s organs for profit?

10 Rhetorical Devices Repetition – Restating something using the same words. “Mr. President, I dare you – yesterday. I dare you- today. I dare you – tomorrow.”

11 Rhetorical Devices Restatement – expressing the same idea using different words. “Let us stop this crime. Let us cease this unlawful act. Let us stop these infractions.”

12 Rhetorical Devices Parallelism – repeating a grammatical structure.
Example: The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessing; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

13 Rhetorical Devices Antithesis: means opposition or opposites. Using strongly contrasting words, images or ideas. Example: Ask not what your school can do for you, ask what you can do for your school.

14 Rhetorical Devices Rhetorical Question – Powerful tool – asking questions for effect. Example: Who are you? You don’t know! Don’t tell me Negro, that’s nothin.’ What were you before the white man named you a Negro? And where were you? And what did you have? What was yours? What language did you speak then? What was your name? Where did it go? Where did you lose it? Who took it? And how did he take it? What tongue did you speak? How did the man take your tongue? Where is your history? How did the man wipe out your history? Malcolm X

19 Thesis Introduction Rhetorical Question Style
How often do you buy something that was made in China? How many jobs does China does China take from the USA every hour? [ask audience member] Every second thousands of items made in China are bought in the USA. Every hour China takes 27 jobs out of the USA. Do you think that is right? Will it make it harder for you to find a job? Is all this trade good or bad for our country? Let us explore together this trillion dollar question.

20 Thesis Introduction 2 Emotional style
Every hour for the last ten years 27 jobs have left the United States and gone to China. It is like the blood of your body being allowed to slowly bleed out. In this speech I wish to convince you that if we want to remain the most powerful country in the world we have to stop this economic bleeding.

21 Thesis Introduction 3 Restatement style
I like the things I buy to be cheap. I love a bargain. I never like to pay full price. If you are like me, then you will love trade with China. The workers work for a fraction of what we get paid in the USA and that keeps prices down. In this American made speech I plan to show how cheap Chinese good are good for the USA.

22 Thesis Introduction 4 Antithesis Style
Hey you don’t have a job – don’t sweat it. Everything China makes is cheap – so who needs money? They take our worthless dollars and we take their TVs, cameras, clothes, furniture and shoes. They have a big pile of dollars and we have a big pile of stuff. In this expose’ I will show you trade is a win-win situation – until they discover our money is worthless.

23 Thesis Introduction 5 Quote Style
“Someday the Chinese will drown in dollars and the USA will be buried in Nike’s.” President Obama said that in Trade between America and the Chinese is out of control…. Or is it. In this expose’ I will show you trade is a win-win situation – until they discover our money is worthless.

24 Conclusion Restate your main points. Make your final conclusion.
