The Thesis Statement, Types and Tests of Evidence: "What Has Happened To Speaking With Conviction?"

"Speak With Conviction" Taylor Mali (Def Poetry) For the text version click here.

Click here to open the video above.
1. Develop Types and Tests of Evidence. 2. All assertions (thesis statements (watch the video) must be supported by evidence. Assertions without valid evidence are opinions without support. Know the evidence available to both the affirmative and negative positions to be able to judge its validity. The following types and tests of evidence help document a position to build a persuasive case based on logical and emotional appeals.

 

3. Aristotle speaks of three ways of using rhetoric ( Watch "The Art of Persuasion"). Each must support the other.
* Logos – using logic to persuade
* Pathos – using emotions to persuade
* Ethos – using personality and character to persuade

4. "Developing a Thesis Statement"
5. "How to Write a Thesis Statement"
6. (Click here to review a list of common logical fallacies.)
7. Read "Integrating Good Sources: Using Quotations Effectively"
8. Answer "Academic Journals, What Are They?" (Academic Inquiry, What is it?)
9. Check out the website: PRO/CONS, (To begin research on a persuasive speech topic.)
10. Develop Types and Tests of Evidence to Support Your Convictions and add to the lists below.

How To Test Evidence:

Go over the two lists above to take notes and ask questions as we listen and prepare for each analysis of the conviction (or lack thereof) behind the remaining speeches. Your final grade will be based on the quality of your convictions as evidenced by the Types and Tests of Evidence above (the more variety the better), your documentation of 3 - 5 different sources (do not just cite websites but also newspapers, journals, books, magazines, etc.), and, you will be evaluated on 3 criteria outlined by the speech rubric: 1. The Content, 2. The Organization and 3. The Delivery of your final speech presentations. Click here for the speech rubric on these 3 areas of evaluation.

Filler words as in "like" and "you know" definitely take away from the impact of your speech good pt. . Great video on Logos Pathos and Ethos too!

This guy is awesome. I need to learn how to construct sentences like he does, and to say them fluently and with emphasis.

This video is very funny and informative at the same time. Imagine if all people spoke like that. I'm just wondering what a guy like that has to do with Mos Def who does not speak with conviction.
