Caring About Your Audience #7IC – A good communicator care about the audience because if the speaker doesn’t care about the audience, the audience can tell and won’t listen. #8B – Aristotle defined three major methods for appealing to an audience: ethical, emotional, and logical. The ethical appeal is used when the speaker tries to show the audience that he is a good and ethical person. The emotional appeal is when the speaker appeals to the heart of audience members. It addresses love, patriotism, or maybe family. The logical appeal is when the speaker appeals to the audience’s logic and intellect by providing factual information. ***The emotional appeal is the most powerful.
Laying a Proper Foundation #8IC – When a speaker is prepare to speak, the speaker should consider certain audience-related factors. These factors include age, gender, social background, education, and socioeconomic standing. If the speaker does not consider these factors, he or she will not be as effective.

Every person must be judged on their own qualities and not be judged as a member of a certain group.
