Great speakers are not merely ones who present a good speech or who arrange a speech well. Rather, such speakers are great because they make compelling and persuasive arguments. To effectively build a sound argument, a speech must contain logos, ethos, and pathos (See Chapter 3 from the course textbook for more on these concepts). As students, scholars, and citizens, we can learn from such great moments in oratory history by studying these three concepts and how they are used to make an argument.For this discussion, choose a speech from the following list of “great speeches” of the 20th century, except the first one (Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech): Top 100 Speeches(Links to an external site.).Read (and perhaps listen to or watch) your chosen speech and identify one instance of logos, ethos, and pathos each being used in the speech. Analyze how the inclusion of each enhances the persuasiveness of the speech.Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references according to APA formatting as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.Required ResourcesTextTinianow, D.
