In this seminar, we’ll go back to the basics of writing: rhetoric. We will explore the concept of (an) argument, study its three components (logos, ethos, pathos), and see how arguments are used to inform, persuade, and fulfil other rhetorical purposes of different genres. We will build a solid foundation that will allow us to enhance our writing regardless of the test we are taking.
