This is a 17 slide ppt that introduces rhetoric, ethos, pathos, logos, and similar ideas. It goes directly with The Language of Composition (2nd ed) Chapter 1. I assign students in my AP English Language and Composition class to read the chapter before this lecture and complete the activities on pages 2, 6, 12, and 22. With minor tweaking, this lecture can work for any intro to rhetoric without the book. I usually break this lecture up over two days with class discussion.
