Tools of Persuasion

Persuasion is a fundamental aspect of communication. To be persuasive, you must create an emotional connection to your subject matter. Ethos, Logos and Pathos are the three pillars that create a successful persuasive speech or piece of content.

When appealing to ethos, you're trying to prove that you're an authority in the subject you speaking about. To appeal to logos, you're trying to convince through evidence and data. And to appeal to pathos you're trying to create an emotional relationship with your audience. This can be done through relaying stories or creating an emotional connection.

Persuasion is a crucial skill for you to hone as an actor, director, or producer. When you can convince others of your point of view, you can persuade them to take action on your behalf. You can also use persuasion as a means of self-expression. Since other people will be more likely to listen to you if they agree with your opinion.

In this course, participants will explore the three main types of persuasion. Ethos (appealing to ethics), Logos (appealing to logic), and Pathos (appealing to emotion). Participants will also discuss the most common types of arguments and how they fit into these categories.

Finally, participants will discuss how you can use these tools. And how using them will affect everyday life and how they relate to the world of acting.

The art of persuasion is a powerful tool in storytelling and communication. When you persuade people through their emotions, logic, and ethics, you can make them feel what you want them to feel.

In this course, participants will learn how to use Ethos, Logos, and Pathos as tools of persuasion in their storytelling. Participants will learn how the three elements work together to create successful narratives.
