I will add that it is highly important that every teacher should, for his or her own sake, be qualified and required to teach in all three parts of the Trivium otherwise Masters of Dialectic, especially, might find their minds hardening into a permanent adolescence. For this reason, teachers in preparatory schools should also take Rhetoric class in the public schools to which they are attached or, if they are not so attached, then by arrangement in other schools in the same neighborhood. Alternatively, a few preliminary classes in rhetoric might be taken in preparatory school from the age of thirteen onwards.

Long term (assuming one does not go back over and over again to the audience I think Logos is more important. But if one is trying to persuade in the short term (say a few days) Pathos is stronger. Just my view.
Pattern Based Writing: Quick & Easy Essay creates effective student writers and then continues to provide the foundation and framework that powers effective elementary school writing instruction!
This video is intended for high school students, yet many 8rd graders from the inner-city who were taught to write basic essays using Pattern Based Writing: Quick & Easy Essay could easily keep up with the ideas. In fact, they would be one or two steps ahead of them.
In the process, your narrative should have an emotional appeal. It can be serious or humorous, but you can attempt to give your audience some way to connect with your story. Maybe they had a similar experience or can relate to the triumphs or challenges you encountered. The more that others can identify with the story, the more impact it will have.
I bought the program hoping to help my middle school students who lacked organization in their writing no topic sentences or even paragraphs to reflect the separation of ideas. I was quite happy when my students began to experience 8775 flow 8776 in the patterns they learned. Because the instruction was explicit and broken down into bite-sized pieces, with practice opportunities for every pattern, students began to internalize the process. I also liked that the program is easy to pull out and use- very little to create or supplement on my own. The program is very useful for middle school students who are beginning middle school without a firm grasp of paragraphing skills.
I tend to agree with Jessica. You decide on the mix of ethos, pathos and logos in your speech after you analyse the audience. An academic audience might judge on ethos, a political rally on pathos, and a finance committee on logos. But in the end, a great speech has a mix of all three.
These three pillars are what define your speech. While I wouldn 8767 t say that one is inherently more important than the other, I would argue that ethos, pathos, and logos can vary in importance for different types of speeches. A technical report before colleagues will require strict attention to logical argument, while a speech designed to rally a crowd will be more intently focused on pathos. In all speeches though, each of the three aspects should be present.
I originally ordered it for use in the learning clinic as extra practice for writing referrals. I found that Pattern Based Writing is an excellent step-by-step repeatable program that can be used in a small group setting or with the whole class. It has a very easy to follow format with many different activities per pattern. I would recommend the program for teachers whose kids are struggling with the basics of paragraphing, as well as Learning Assistance Teachers and homeschoolers.
