Reflection: Intervention and Extension Brainstorming with Ethos, Pathos and Logos - Section 3: Closing


By looking at their exit tickets, the students had great ideas for their own lives, but since I used non-fiction articles for the lesson the next day, I should have also told students to use questions. For example if a student choose the subject of fast food, they could have asked, "how many calories are in a Big Mac?" for logos. For pathos they could have asked, "I wonder if someone has the same story I do?" For ethos, they could have asked, "How many other people believe that fast food is unhealthy?" This would have helped spurred this thinking for reading the non-fiction articles in the next lesson. However, the majority of students showed their comprehension of ethos, pathos and logos in the exit ticket.
