  • 2. ETHOS, PATHOS, and LOGOS – AS YOU ANALYZE THE ADVERTISMENTS: • Ethos: Is it Ethical? Do you trust its sources? • Pathos: Does it make you feel a strong emotion? • Logos: Does it make you use your sense of reason? Is it logical?

  • 5. 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 scientific approach.

  • 20. • DIRECTIONS: Read the rest of Cassius’ speech to Brutus looking for claim statements. Underline each claim. • Ask yourself: – Is he saying something is true or untrue? – Is he saying something is good or bad? – Is he saying it’s better to do one thing than another thing?
