Hi Miss Ale
I have seen the video and I think that it makes a lot of scene.Because if you really want something that another person maybe dose not want to convince them you should use persuasion.There are three main tactics and they are Ethos,Logos and Pathos.They use Ethos to establish your credibility with the person.They use Logos to be reasonable. Finally they use Pathos for the your own feelings.Putting all together it is better to use all of them together.I really liked the video and I am so exited in the project that we are going to work next week.
See you on Monday!

Hi Miss Ale,
This video is going to help me for all my life. I think that this video can be very helpful in many ways, one is if you want to use it for your own benefit and the other one is if you use it to do something that can help others.I think the best tactic is logos or pathos because they can put more reasons to do what you want. If you use them all together one time , you are almost sure that it is going to work.Next week there is a lot to do and no time to wast. These tactics are very useful to be able to explain your ideas better and give more reasons. Like the video said: "These tactics also make you a better philosopher". And what i learnt from this video is that if you want something really bad, you should use persuation: Ethos to establish your credibility, Logos to give reasons and evidence of what your saying and the last one pathos which in this one you can use your feelings to persuave others.
See you on Monday!!!

Hi Miss Ale,
I've seen the video and I think I have understand is pretty well. It's about persuasion that really I agree, it's the best way to convince a person. The three steps to persuade a people are Ethos, Logos and Pathos.
Ethos generates credibility for the person you want to convince bealives what you are saying. Logos is used for the person you want to convive realizes you have very good reasons if what are saying is a good idea and makes her/him thoughtful. And Pathos that is what you do to create feelings in the other person and finally convinve the victim that what you are proposing is really something thay ou and her/him likes too. Moreover I've learnt things I think I would never know like that Aristotle, the philosopher, invented this three steps and used themto persuade other people. Also this video helped me to use a new way to convince my parents to do something, so I really enjoyed this video and thank you for showing it.
See you on Monday!!!!

I think is a very good video. For me this is a way of convincing people of something. Using diferent strategies to make people think that your thinking is right. From now on I will use this three strategies to convince mom or dad or to convince any other people.

Manuel.B said...

Thank you miss ale for this video!!!

Juan de G said...

Hi miss ale
The video was very funny. I liked when the boy starts talking about that he would like to eat some pizza.

joaquin.c said...

I think that persuade somebody is to make them do what you want make them do what you want start to say good things of your opinion and then mabe you will make the other person think or do the thing you want or think.

Hello Miss Ale:

Today I saw the video in the class and somethings were intelligent and not exaggerate but others were very good and allot of them we knew. Today we were all very sleepy. I do something similar in my house but it never results. I dont do it all the days like twice per two weeks so its a good time to bother. I remember

Paulina B said...

Hi Miss Ale

Today we thought in class about persuade, and you showed us how to do it with some examples!!!
I liked the tecniques, Ethos, Pathos and Logos they are good to use.
See you tomorrow,Paulina

Hi miss Ale
This video is very good! I do the same thing as that boy, and I am very good at that. This is persuasion that is a sinonimous of confinse. There are three main tactics that are: Ethos, logos and Pathos.

silvestreb said...

Hi Miss Ale,
This is a great video to learn how to write persuasive essay becasuse it shows you all the steps by cartoon! For us it is easier to learn by watching a video or cartoon! I learnt that the three main tactics are Logos, Ethos and Pathos by using these strategies you may convince your audience to do what you want them to do! If I am correct well.... See you tomorrow!

miss ale i liked watching the video because now i can understand what we talked and comented in class i think that the boy was very wise to think before doing things and make the wright decision he was very inteligent because of what he said and i think he could have convinced any mother he wanted to and allso I loved the mans accent.

Hi miss Ale
Persuasion is the best way of convinsing somebody to do something without putting him in presure. I think ethos is the most important tactic but then you have logos and pathos. You cant use them alone, you have to do them all together buecause if not it will not be convincing. It is a very good viedo because it shows yopu very well what are the 3 steps and how you need to do them in detail.
See you tomorrow

Hi Miss ALe
I think the video is great. It persuades you that it is true and it is very understandable. Thuis video is about persuading other people. Persuading means convincing, making the other people believe...etc. There are three parts in Persuading: Ethos, Logos and Pathos. When we wrote for example the Persuasive Essay we wanted to make you believe that what we wrote was true and really infered with the text you gave us. By see you tomorrow!

I think this video helps you to learn how to persuade. In this occasion Ari is trying to convince his mum to buy pizza, and he doesnt stop saying to her reasons for to buy pizza and this video helped me a lot.
