Caging Animals: Reading Analysis

Persuasive Reading Analysis: Caging Animals
We are learning to analyse text to identify examples of ethos, pathos and logos.
Persuasive strategy
Yes / No

Claim – States the main  
point or stance
Yes
The Author states her opinion or point when she/he says: “Most animals kept caged up in zoos will never know how living free feels”.
Big Names –  Mentions experts and
important people to support the argument
No
Logos – Uses logic, numbers, or  
facts to support the argument
Yes
The author uses facts and logic about animals in zoos and how they have never experienced their own natural habitat e.g “ Take for example Atlanta's own Willie B. Willie B is probably Atlanta's most famous animal, but do you think he cares or even knows. All he knows is that he has been sitting in a cage for over 20 years. Willie B. does not know what his natural habitat is or even looks like.”
Pathos – Appeals to the audience’s emotions
Yes
The Author appeals to the audience's emotions when s/he says “I used to love going to the zoo and seeing all of the different animals”.Encouraging the reader to empathise with their view.
Ethos – Tries to build trust and
credibility
Yes
The author has credibility because s/he is very knowledgeable about animals and how they are caged,the climate/weather they live in and their habitat.
Kairos – Builds a sense of urgency  
for the cause


Research – Uses studies and  
information to make the  
argument seem more convincing;  
this can be in the form of words,
graphs, tables, or illustrations
