Today we returned out PLN rubrics. DO NOT LOSE!! and we discussed rhetorical devises for writing PLN 2. The three types of literary devices are ethos, pathos, and logos.
Ethos - ethical appeals (right from wrong) what is morally okay.
Pathos - emotional appeals, (sad or happy)
Logos - logical appeals, usually statistics
In PLN 2 we are writing a response to the video Kony 2012. In our writing we want to:
use strong word choice
look at Mrs. Smith's examples (slides 4, 6, and 8)
use personal pronouns (mine, I, me)
use general words (things, stuff)
In PLN 2 our first paragraph should be the summary paragraph, and the second should talk about the rhetorical device, which ones did they use were they effective, why or why not?
Also Mrs. Smith will be missing school next week while we work on our voice thread projects, If you need to contact her you can email her or skype her!
