We are learning to analyse a piece of persuasive text using: ethos, pathos and logos.
Persuasive Reading Analysis : Homework Should Be Banned
Persuasive strategy
Yes / No
How the author used it?
Claim – States the main  
point or stance
Yes
The author has stated their thoughts to the audience about what they think in order to persuade us to back their idea up, e.g “ Most kids get far too much homework”.Close reading informs the reader that the writer is targeting homework for little children which I interpret as 5 and 6 year olds
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 used true facts to persuade the audience further into thinking what they think, e.g   “ it’s well known that kids are not as fit as they should. and sitting around doing homework is dreadfully unhealthy ”.
Pathos – Appeals to the audience’s emotions
Yes
The author also thinks about the feelings of the  audience (as a parent and as a child), e.g “ Kids work hard all day so they need time to recover and if they have homework to worry about it stresses out the children and parents.
Ethos – Tries to build trust and credibility
No
