didn’t call for action. To make an improvement, I think she needs to practice more to know when she should and should not pause when giving her speech to make her presentation runs smoother. The speaker should make some movements but not too much while she is giving a speech. She can move either side to catch audiences’ attention as well as when moving, she needs to move decisively, avoid moving too much or lean back on the audience, making noise when moving. On the other hand, the speaker should prepare some questions about her topic that she thinks the audiences may ask her after the speech in order to give enough information for those who are interested. The percentage of ethos, logos, and pathos used in this speech in my opinion can be measured as follow; ethos: 25%, logos: 30% , pathos: 45%. The speaker’s using statistics and evidence about the age of drivers should be restricted has built the logos appeal to her audiences. Additionally, she has personal connection to the topic which is about her nephew’s accident that gives the ethos appeal and creates credibility for her listeners. Lastly, her strong conclusion that reminds about her nephew’s story somehow give her speech pathos and emotional appeal.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
