    4. 4. Pathos (Emotional Appeal) means persuading by appealing tothe readers emotions. Language choice affects the audiencesemotional response, and emotional appeal can effectively beused to enhance an argument.Ethos (Ethical appeal) means convincing by the character ofthe author. We tend to believe people whom we respect. One ofthe central problems of argumentation is to project an impressionto the reader that you are someone worth listening to, in otherwords making yourself as author into an authority on the subjectof the paper, as well as someone who is likable and worthy ofrespect.Logos (Logical Appeal) means persuading by the use of reasoning.Look at deductive and inductive reasoning, and discuss whatmakes an effective, persuasive reason to back up your claims.Giving reasons is the heart of argumentation, and cannot beemphasized enough.
    5. 5. ARGUMENT SUPPORT requires the student to investigate a topic, collect & evaluate evidence, and establish a position on the topic. takes a position on one side of a controversial issue or simply, argues a point. An argument needs to be narrow enough for you to defend in the length of essay assigned. You need to be able to find enough evidence to support your assertions. **You need to make a point worth arguing: a point that elicits a "so what?" from your reader will not generate a strong essay.
    6. 6. The thesis statement is a sentence in your text thatcontains the focus of your essay and tells your readerwhat the essay is going to be about. It frequentlyappears at or near the end of the first paragraph.Many writers think of a thesis statement as anumbrella: everything that you carry along in youressay has to fit under this umbrella, and if you try totake on packages that dont fit, you will either have toget a bigger umbrella or somethings going to getwet.
