DON’T HATE--DEBATE 2.12
DO NOW Get out your SpringBoard books and turn to/rip out pages Make sure your table group has a copy of both articles. (THESE ARE CLASS COPIES. DO NOT WRITE ON THEM.)
VOCABULARY FOR PERSUASION Logos: “an appeal to reason; providing logical reasoning and evidence in the form of description, narration, and/or exposition” In other words… Logos uses logic in order to persuade someone that an argument makes sense/is correct. Examples: “Studies show that pet owners display a larger degree of happiness and lower stress. Since landlords will be more likely to retain good residents if those residents are happy, apartments buildings should allow residents to own pets without outrageous pet fees.” “If the rule states that students who misuse cell phones in class will have those phones confiscated, and you are a student who misuses a cell phone in class, it only stands to reason that you will have your cell phone taken away from you.”
VOCABULARY PART TWO Pathos: “an appeal to emotions; using descriptive, connotative, and figurative language for effect; providing an emotional anecdote; developing tone.” In other words… Pathos is the use of emotions to “persuade” an audience to agree with your argument. Examples: “My stomach was growling. I was growling—in fact, my friends were starting to avoid me near lunch time because I was treating them so cruelly. It felt like my stomach was trying to eat the rest of me. This is why we should have longer school lunches—so that all the children can eat and not be starving all day. Won’t someone please think of the children?” …any Humane society commercial.
VOCABULARY PART 3 Ethos: “an appeal based on trust or character; demonstrating that you understand the audience’s point of view; making the audience believe that you are knowledgeable and trustworthy; showing that you have researched your topic by supporting reasons with appropriate, logical evidence and reasoning.” In other words… Ethos means that you are persuading others with the sheer force of how credible and knowledgeable and trustworthy you are. Examples: “As a doctor, I will tell you that you should…” “The extensive research I have done over 10 years on this very specific topic will prove…” “I am Frederick Douglass, and as you know, I am a wise and awesome human being. So, you will believe me when I say…” Please refer back to everything Frederick Douglass ever wrote for evidence of how awesome he is.
NEXT STEP: PICTURES You will have five minutes to finish copying down your notes and to create a visual for each of the three types of appeal (logos, pathos, and ethos) to help you remember what it means. Go!
NOW THAT YOU HAVE ALL THAT DOWN… You are going to be preparing for a debate. We will surprise you with the debate rules and the type tomorrow when you come in. (Everyone loves surprises!) With the rest of the time in class today, you will be doing some research so you come to the debate prepared. There are two different articles (in CLASSROOM SETS) with your table group. You should read those and the article on page 135 in order to prepare for tomorrow.
DEBATE PREP DIRECTIONS Here is what you need to do with the articles you have: Label 3 pages in your notes with the titles of the three articles. Create a graphic organizer similar to the one on 133 for each of the articles that lists the six elements of argument: purpose, audience, claim, evidence, reasoning, and counterclaim. You are preparing for a debate, so make sure you know what YOU would claim after reading the articles. YOU MUST HAVE EVIDENCE AND REASONS FOR BOTH SIDES! (Who knows which side you will end up on…)
