2016 TED-Ed video gives overview of rhetoric

You might be interested in sharing this short instructional TED-Ed video to give students or friends an overview of Aristotle’s 3 genres and 3 appeals and how they can be used.

“How to use rhetoric to get what you want” (04:30), posted Sept. 20, 2016 by the TED-Ed YouTube channel https://youtu.be/3klMM9BkW5o

The title sounds like it teaches how to use rhetoric for selfish ends, but the content focuses on public rhetoric and encourages ethical use of rhetoric through ethos, argument, and cautions about pathos.

Full video information is on the TED-Ed website at http://ed.ted.com/lessons/how-to-use-rhetoric-to-get-what-you-want-camille-a-langston

2017 CSSR conference in Toronto: Correct website link

If you are planning to come this year to CSSR 2017 in Toronto at Ryerson University, here is the correct website link for conference information: http://cssr-scer.ca/conference/

This morning I was informed that outdated information about last year’s 2016 conference was still on our website.  It misdirected people to last year’s conference location in Calgary. I have now removed the outdated pages and posts from our website.  I’m very sorry if anyone received the wrong information from those pages.

Sincerely,

Dr. Tania S. Smith
CSSR President and Webmaster
