**************************************************************************

Persuasive writing is an essential part of the ELA curriculum. However, before students can become proficient in writing their own persuasive pieces, they need to understand the concepts of persuasive language, be able to identify and explain them, and then put them into practice themselves.

These worksheets help to introduce the concepts of ETHOS, PATHOS and LOGOS and give students the opportunity to put their knowledge into practice.

CONTENTS

Introduction to Ethos, Pathos and Logos: This one-page informational handout briefly explains who Aristotle was, and his field of study. It also covers the basics of what ethos, pathos and logos actually are and why they are used.

Let’s Focus On Ethos / Let’s Focus On Pathos / Let’s Focus On Logos: These THREE one-page worksheets go into more detail on what ethos, pathos and logos are, how they can be used and why they are effective in persuasive speech and writing. These pages also contain activities for students to apply their knowledge of these three concepts.

Using Ethos, Pathos & Logos: This worksheet expands on the three previous ones and requires students to put their knowledge into action by writing their own persuasive sentences with the use of ethos, pathos and logos.

Identifying Ethos, Pathos & Logos in Advertising: This worksheet puts students’ knowledge to the test by requiring them to identify how ethos, pathos & logos are used in extracts from advertisements. This is a great way for students to see the ‘everyday’ use of these concepts.
