To explore the history of public speaking
To be able to use key words when describing public speaking

New Word Alert!!!

Level 5 and above:
NO CHEATING – KEEP YOUR EXERCISE BOOKS CLOSED!!
To be able to use ETHOS and HYPERBOLE
The appeal to the audience
You as the speaker introduce yourself and make your
audience trust you
This is not the same as lying –
but you are allowed to ‘stretch the truth’ a little bit
In other words – you need to talk the same language as your audience.
What does that mean?
Which of these celebrities has the best ETHOS appeal to a teenage audience? Why?
Why is one of these men more popular than the other?
“German compatriots, my German workers, if today I am speaking to you and to millions of other German workers, I have a greater right to be doing this than anybody else. Once I stood amongst you. For four and a half years of war I was in your midst. And through diligence, learning – and,I have to say, hunger – I slowly worked my way up. Deep inside me, I always remained what I had been before”
Hitler, Berlin 1933
How does my introduction appeal to the audience?
By the way I never taught year 8 last year…. But if I had taught them that’s what they would have said!
REMEMBER the power of HYPERBOLE – you shouldn’t lie but you can bend the truth a little!
