The Rhetorical Triangle

We already discussed what components make up a high quality speech, but...

what elements need to be present for a speech to occur?


How do these appeals work?
The Rhetorical Triangle
Queen Elizabeth's Speech to the Troops at Tilbury
One of the most powerful women who ever lived was Queen Elizabeth I of England. Elizabeth (1533-1603) was the daughter of King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, and was known as the Virgin Queen or Good Queen Bess. She was 25 years old when she became queen.and ruled England for 44 years until age 69.
In the 1500s, there was a major rivalry on the seas between the ships of Britain and Spain over control of trade in the New World. King Philip II of Spain decided to settle the question once and for all by invading and conquering England itself. Philip assembled a huge fleet of warships known as the Spanish Armada and in 1588 sailed into the English Channel.

The words you will read/view were spoken by Elizabeth when she visited her troops in the field as they prepared for this battle. During the nine-day battle, the smaller, more maneuverable British ships met the Spanish Armada and inflicted terrible losses. Spanish ships that sailed away encountered foul weather and only a few ever returned to Spain. Following the defeat of the Spanish Armada, Britain became the dominant world power and remained so for centuries.

With a partner, read Queen Elizabeth's Speech to her Troops at Tilbury. Underline or highlight words, phrases, or passages that you believe are solid examples of ethos, pathos, or logos. All three of these appeals appear in the speech. Complete the graphic organizer.

**When you finish, write a contextual example of each of the three appeals on a post-it and hang each post-it on the corresponding poster hanging in the room.
