All Boys, All Blogged: March 9, 2015

Focus: What are the qualities of an effective speech?

Please make sure you are signed up for a book talk.

1. Warming up: Exploring a few definitions of logos, ethos, and pathos

2. Exploring the detailed overview of your book talks (if you don't have your green packet, please click HERE), particularly the part in which you address logos, ethos, and pathos

3. Watching a professional speech and discussing how the speaker uses the three appeals
  • What is his attention grabber (how does he open his speech)?
  • What is his claim?  In other words, what point is he trying to make?
  • How was his speech organized?  In other words, what were his topics?
  • How did he use the slides projected to the audience?
  • Which details in his speech (images, phrases, word choices, etc.) appeal to ethos, logos, and pathos?
4. If time allows, starting to work on your own book talk

1. Please read pages 41-63 in F451 and complete one side of your green observation chart/reading journal by tomorrow (Tuesday).

2. Work on your book talk and be ready to go on your presentation date.

3. This Friday we will have a vocabulary quiz over F451 words 1 through 15 ("abstracted" through "fold").
