JOURNAL# 9: In chapter 23 we are introduced to the concept of persuasive speaking, “meant to influence audience members’ attitudes, beliefs, values, and/or behavior by appealing to some combination of their needs desires, interests, and even fears” (167). This is huge for getting an audience to be engaged and care about an important topic because they become more likely to want to do something because they are connected to it. This would be considered “pathos”(169). In chapter 24 we are given the way to set up a persuasive speech. The book gives the reader three steps, “Claim, Evidence, and warrant”(175). Which leads to how someone builds an argument and is able to back up the concepts that they are sharing. With these three steps comes with different sub portions of how they work. Which lead to the different responses that come with persuasive speeches.
