Activity 3: Analysis of Letter by Mikhael Tyebally (21)

For the first paragraph, the writer first uses ethos when he compliments the congressman, which may make the congressman more willing to listen to what he has to say. Secondly, he uses pathos when he shares about the loss of a child during a gun accident.

In the next paragraph, the writer starts off with logos by using facts and statistics to show how dangerous guns can be.

In the third paragraph, he again uses logos to prove the danger in guns when misused with supporting facts and statistics.

For the fourth paragraph, he starts off with ethos in the first sentence and then moves on to logos for the rest of the paragraph, stating different facts and statistics.

In the fifth paragraph, he uses logos, stating statistics about the deaths caused by guns.

In the sixth paragraph, he uses ethos, asking the congressman emotional questions.

And in the last paragraph, He uses pathos when he asks emotional questions again.
