Planning techniques: Logos, pathos and ethos

Lesson outcome

In this lesson, we will be looking at planning techniques that will help us generate ideas as well as produce a balanced and thoughtful viewpoint essay plan. We will do this by looking to the Greeks and learning about 'logos', 'ethos,' 'pathos' and 'kairos'. You will then have an opportunity to start creating a plan, using a framework to help sequence your ideas.
