English 10 Unit 5: Art of Persuasion

In this unit, our English class will be engaging in the art of persuasion.  Building upon our previous knowledge of ethos, pathos, and logos, we will be examining the Toulmin Model of Argumentation and employing it in our debates and persuasive essays.

Here are some of the texts we will be using:

A Modest Proposal – Jonathan Swift

12 Angry Men – Reginald Rose

Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion – Cialdini, Robert
