Also, Herman gives annual numbers of alcohol accidents and deaths as a form of Ethos to persuade the audience.
Last, he uses a small example of Pathos as he says “For the sake of our friends, those we love and our futures” (Herman 471).
In the 1970’s 30 states lowered the drinking age, however it didn’t last long.
If America lets our young people today and our future leaders drink at a younger age, we would be risking a higher chance of our adult population abusing alcohol.
When a teaching assistant or professor is marking an essay, they are looking for a clearly-defined statement or series of statements that professes the point you are trying to make within your paper.
If your essay doesn’t have a thesis (or lacks a clear thesis), you’ve basically wasted your time on your paper. You may think you need a definite thesis when you are writing, but that’s a myth.Lowering the drinking age may also lead to more car accidents among teenagers.If the drinking age is left where it’s at then there might be less fatal accidents than if states lowered the Minimum Legal Drinking Age.However, if you have a complex topic you may need to have your thesis as a couple of sentences.Although there are different kinds of theses for different kinds of papers (research papers vs. literary essays etc), they all follow the same general structure.His organization helps identify his thesis and explains the principal reason behind his article.Also Herman uses great techniques of Ethos, Logos and Pathos to persuade the audience.Some teens drink when they are under the Minimum Legal Drinking Age (MLDA), especially on college campuses and at high schools.Some of them have reasons to why they drink; however others drink under peer pressure or just because they want to.One individual in particular is Andrew Herman, who argues this in “Raise the Drinking age to Twenty-Five”.Herman does very well in addressing the rhetorical situation by presenting the audience with data from alcohol related accidents and deaths, this evidence is strong and makes his claim credible and logical.
