The Rhetorical Triangle: Ethos, Pathos, Logos

By Katherine Docimo and Kristy Littlehale

In high school, students need to develop formal writing skills, creating essays and arguments that are well-thought-out and syntactically varied. Students must also effectively use persuasive writing strategies to defend a claim or point of view. A great way to enhance students' understanding of effective arguments is to teach the Aristotelian concepts of Ethos, Pathos, and Logos. This requires a basic working knowledge of rhetoric. A key to strong persuasive writing is the ability to dissect and validate, or debunk, the rhetoric of other arguments.
