You might also use Wikipedia to collect background information and find synonyms/other terms. Scroll down to the bottom of the Wikipedia page to look for a list of citations for other sources of information, which may also help with your background search. You should not, however, use Wikipedia as a real information source or cite it in your paper. It is only useful for getting an overview of a topic! Below, make a list of at least five keywords you will use to begin conducting your search. Remember that research—re-search, to search again and search again—is a process of trial and error, so you may need to modify your search terms as you discover which terms help you find relevant sources and which don't.

Instead, do your best to narrow the search parameters (for example, request full text articles only and/or use the advanced search tool). Then, skim the titles for articles that look relevant. When you find a title that looks relevant, click on it and read the abstract (summary) of the article. If it looks like a promising source, print and/or email it to yourself and read it. 5) What are the main keywords you will use to research the opposing viewpoint? 6) Use these terms to search for articles on EBSCO Academic Search Premier and EBSCO OmniFile Full Text. Were you able to find any articles concerning the opposing viewpoint? 7) How do you plan to show that this opposing viewpoint is incorrect and that your claim is indeed the right one? Are there quotes you can use in the articles you found?

Persuasive essay using ethos pathos and logos
Before getting to know how to use ethos pathos and logos in an essay, let’s first figure out what ethos, pathos, and logos are. Ethos, logos, and pathos are three main ingredients that help a person persuade the audience in their point of view. These ingredients, better known as «appeals», were invented by Ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle almost 2000 years ago. He knew how to use ethos pathos and logos in an essay in order to convince the audience in his ideas. Rhetoric teaches us how to use the language in the most effective way. It is important when talking to the audience to persuade them of some necessary ideas and views and make them do certain things. The same rules can be applied to various writing assignments, such as essays. The essay should also appeal to readers and its main idea should be heard and understood by them.
