Rhetoric is the art of discourse, an art that aims to improve the facility of speakers or writers who attempt to inform, persuade, or motivate particular audiences in specific situations.
Its best known definition comes from Aristotle, who considers it a counterpart of both logic and politics.
From ancient Greece to the late 19th century, it was a central part of Western education, filling the need to train public speakers and writers to move audiences to action.
A speaker, writer, or artist supports the probability of a message by logical, ethical, and emotional proofs.
Some form of logos, ethos, and pathos is present in every possible public presentation that exists.
ethos: Aristotle’s theory of character and how the character and credibility of a speaker, literary text, or picture can influence an audience to consider him/her to be believable.
pathos: the use of emotional appeals to alter the audience's judgment.
logos: the use of reasoning, either inductive or deductive, to construct an argument.

Propaganda Poster ProjectPropaganda Poster Project Kantorek’s letter is littered with meaningless phrases of patriotic zeal, calling them “Iron Youth” and praising their great courage. Paul and his friends remember how they once respected Kantorek. Now, they loathe him. In calling Paul and his friends “Iron Youth,” Kantorek suggests that they are young, impassive, and strong. Yet Paul and his friends feel raw, and they yearn for their old lives, when they felt young. Now, combat has aged them beyond their years. Paul and his friends feel that older men such as Kantorek have betrayed their trust and sent them to die for empty and useless ideals.
With a partner you are going to create piece of propaganda in support or against of some modern issue. Ultimately you will present your piece of propaganda to the rest of class.
