WEEK SEVEN: Fallacies | Ethos, Pathos, and Logos, Cont'd

READING: Wood, Chapter 7



After collecting your Quiz #3, we began this week with a couple more Working Claims Presentations. These presentations took up a good portion of the class.

Next, we briefly looked at what a logical fallacy is, though we didn't go into any specific fallacies yet.

We did an activity where we looked for examples of Ethos, Pathos, and Logos in Barbara Bush's Speech at Wellesley College: Choices and Change.

We finished up class by talking about the final paper. I passed out a handout explaining your two choices: The Evaluation Essay (Value Claim) and The Proposal Essay (Policy Claim). I explained that the remainder of your homework assignments will relate directly to your final paper, and then ended class with 45 minutes of workshop time.
