Well-Balanced Audience Appeals

Well-Balanced Audience Appeals

Step 1: Review The Keys to Persuasion (pdf). Are the audience appeals in your essay well-balanced?

Share why you think your appeals are well-balanced or unbalanced. Explain why you feel this way.

Share any paragraphs that you feel illustrate the balance of the audience appeals (logic, credibility, and emotion). You may also share an unbalanced paragraph where one (or more) of the appeals is stronger than the other(s).

Step 2: Help one or more classmates balance their appeals by providing feedback and asking questions.

For example: Have you created a list of your supporting points and thought about how you will appeal to each point?
