11 Openings Which Catch Our Attention When someone is shooting at you, you always assume the shooter is the bad guy. Although you have your differences, however, you may be more alike than you think. As an upcoming college student, we all wonder how our college experience will be. The type of experience we will have depends on whether will chose to live on campus or live off campus. Laughter is the best medicine. What better way is there to take your medicine than with your best friends?

12 Openings Which Catch Our Attention Did you ever wonder how fantastic it would be to see yourself in more than one place at a time? Just imagine yourself living a double life between two amazing cities that have the same values, but still are very different from one another. Have you ever had to choose between two amazing places and struggled to make a decision between the two?

13 Openings which Capture Our Attention In the world of book adaptations, there are few instances when movies can truly compare to their fictional counterparts.

14 Openings which Capture Our Attention When I was in ninth grade, going into the second semester of high school, I ended up doing badly in English I and failing the second semester. That’s where it all started. I lost my entire grade summer because of an online class. The world of soccer is a gigantic global world passion. Today, it is common to hear all soccer fans have the same conversation about who is the best player in the world, Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo.

15 Openings which Capture Our Attention As technology evolves, we as humans seem to be more attached to it every day. For some it means progression, and for others it encumbers them. Some universities around the world give students the choice to take traditional classes or online classes. Every year, high school seniors are stressed out over the decision of whether or not to attend college or not. Once a senior decides to go to college, the choice has to be made between living on or off campus.

16 Openings Which Capture Our Attention Nike and Adidas are two of the most popular sports equipment companies in the world. Have you ever asked what separates two seemingly disparate religious beliefs? At the heart of the Middle East two religious beliefs and cultures at odds with each other. On one side we have Israel and Judaism and other the other we have Islam and various Arab countries. One can find a fast food restaurant at any corner or in any mall. Two of the most famous restaurants are McDonalds and Chick Fil-A

17 Openings Which Capture Our Attention Everyone loves theme parks right? They have rides, attractions, and they take you to a world that is care free. Lucky enough for me there are two of the nation’s well known theme parks in my back yard: Universal Studios and Walt Disney World. In today’s society we can choose to take online classes or pursue our education through the more traditional medium in an on-site classroom setting. The two differ in many ways, but the goals of the two are the same.

18 Strong Thesis Statements Although traditional and online classes focus on teaching a student the same curriculum and objectives, the differ in the type of experience and impact they have on the learner. Even though Chick Fil-A and McDonalds both serve fast food and have similar target audiences, these restaurants differ in number of sales, basis of operation, and mission statements. The book and movie versions of The Fault of Our Stars are similar in presenting the main characters fall in love and grow stronger together. They differ in the presentation of specific details and the absence of minor characters from the movie.

19 Strong Thesis Statements While Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln are both ranked among the top most effective Presidents of all time, they differed in philosophy, preparation for the position, and party affiliation. The most prominent difference between quantum mechanics and classical physics are the magnitude of events, and the perplexing and unintuitive events that occur in one realm but seem to seamlessly disappear in another. Their similarities, however, are that they both are the study of matter and energy, and fundamentally an event in one realm constitutes an event in the other.

20 Effective Transitions Even though Erwin Rommel and Bernard Montgomery were two different people fighting for two different countries for two different causes, they were more alike than one might think. As similar as they sound, there are gigantic differences between these two friends. Another difference between these two friends is hobbies. The first difference between these two American Presidents is philosophy.

21 Effective Transitions Although these two ways of taking classes differ, the end result of both is that you will get knowledge and tools that will be useful in the future. Even though these two companies have both owned the rights to Marvel comics, they have gone two different directions with the types of movies they’ve made.

22 Global Issue 1: Lack of Citations Lack of citations in the text of the paper. Sources are listed on Works Cited Page but not cited in the paper. Lesson Learned: Make sure to not only document sources on the Works Cited Page but within the paper.

23 Global Issues: Lack of Depth of Research Lack of Depth of Research Using only one source Using only sources from company websites Lesson Learned: Perform in-depth research from a variety of sources. Find current research (for example, if you are comparing sales of two restaurants, find data that is 6 months old – not 3 years old) Look for specific facts, statistics, expert comments.

30 Ways to Make Your Argument More Powerful

31 What is? ETHOS, PATHOS, and LOGOS Ethos: the source's credibility, the speaker's/author's authority Logos: the logic used to support a claim (induction and deduction); can also be the facts and statistics used to help support the argument. Pathos: the emotional or motivational appeals; vivid language, emotional language and numerous sensory details.

32 Ethos

33

34 Pathos Pathos: Emotion To make the audience feel something about what is presented to it Children, animals, illness, memories, etc… “Tugs at your heart strings”

35 Pathos

36

37 Logos Logos: Logic To make the audience think about what is presented to it Statistics, facts, authorities, etc… Very straightforward, and not “fluff”. It has a very scientific, factual approach.

38 Logos

40 FOR EXAMPLE: Ad Analysis 1: Michelin Tires Little Baby Message: Don't skimp on the important stuff, we need good tires our families depend on it. Pathos (little babies are cute and we want them to live)

41 Partner Activity Partner Activity: Pros and Cons of Death with Dignity Issue Pass out Assignment Sheet and Resources Before we do this activity, let’s look at how authors have used ethos, pathos, logos in arguments on this issue.

42 Ethos, Logos, Pathos? In 2012, the most recent year for which we have an annual statistical report, terminally ill patients who died after ingesting medication under the Act accounted for 0.2 percent of all deaths in Oregon. The top three concerns patients expressed to their attending physicians when requesting medication under the Act reflect the patients’ desire to maintain control over their final days. Of the end-of-life concerns expressed, the least common was “financial implications of treatment.” Reviewing 15 years of data in the aggregate, 1,050 terminally ill patients have received prescriptions, and 673 of these patients have ingested the prescribed medications to hasten their deaths, while 377 chose not to. Over 15 years, only 2 percent of the people who used the law did not have insurance coverage. In 2012, excluding those few for which insurance status was unknown, all of the participants were covered by some form of insurance.

43 Logos – Appeal to Logic In 2012, the most recent year for which we have an annual statistical report, terminally ill patients who died after ingesting medication under the Act accounted for 0.2 percent of all deaths in Oregon.

In 2012, excluding those few for which insurance status was unknown, all of the participants were covered by some form of insurance.

44 Logos, Pathos, Ethos? https://storify.com/KarenJanssen/death-with- dignity

45 Pathos Pathos: use of horrific pictures of terminally ill patients, these pictures appeal to pathos because this video makes those people look helpless and miserable, which isn't a life that anybody would want to live. bolds some words in its statements such as; pain, unbearable suffering, anguish, and no hope. All of those words are very depressing and hopeless. 74% of those respondents who claimed to belong to a religion agreed that doctors should be allowed to provide a lethal dose to a patient experiencing unbelievable suffering with no hope of recovery.

46 Logos Along with pathos this Ad appeals to the use of logos when it says "we can choose so many of our life experiences, but it seems we can have no say in whether we die in pain or at peace." This statement appeals to logos because something as huge and personal as death seems most logical for us as American citizens to have the right to choose how we want to end our life but it doesn't seem to be so simple. 74% of those respondents who claimed to belong to a religion agreed that doctors should be allowed to provide a lethal dose to a patient experiencing unbelievable suffering with no hope of recovery.

47 Logos, Ethos, Pathos?

48 Pathos Appeals to pathos because viewers get to first handedly see the struggles and pain that Brittany has had to go through to ensure that she wouldn't have to die a painful and an uncontrollable death. By getting to see and hear what Brittany has had to go through the audience of people watching this video feel pain and sorrow in the situation

49 Logos The Vatican also felt obligated to sternly lecture everyone about Maynard’s self-directed death, calling it “an absurdity” and “reprehensible.” Monsignor Ignacio Carrasco de Paula, “Suicide is not a good thing. It is a bad thing because it is saying no to life and to everything it means with respect to our mission in the world and toward those around us.”

60 In-Text Citation According to Nat Hentoff, if a patient desired to end his or her life, two doctors would first have to conclude that the patient had less than six months to live (As many doctors will attest this sort of prediction can be alarmingly imprecise.) The two doctors, by the way, could include anyone with a medical degree who was licensed in California – a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon.

In addition, there will be no way to guarantee whether the decision of assisted suicide is really voluntary or insisted by others.” One of the cons of euthanasia is that “family members may take unjustified disadvantage when mercy killing was legalized through influencing the decision of the patient into it just for their own gains.
