Points of view
Rhetoric has a long history of more than 2,400 years. The terms ethos, logos and pathos, dating back to the time of Aristotle, are still used today.
Words have impact for many reasons, including their ability to frame issues, and the way their meaning can be shaped to convey a particular impression. In fact, the more we consider rhetorical aspects, the larger their influence appears to be on economics itself. Leith writes:
Why is Rhetoric Required?
Have you ever bargained with a car salesperson to lower a price, wanted to negotiate a raise with your boss, needed to give a presentation in front of a group, had an argument with a friend over a controversial topic, or made a complaint over the phone? Have you ever written an essay, composed a letter applying for a job, read a book, watched an advertisement, or contributed to a blog?
What do you need to do these things well? Rhetoric.
Rhetoric is not just empty words or fine political speeches. Rhetoric is the study and art of writing and speaking well, being persuasive, and knowing how to compose successful writing and presentations. Rhetoric teaches us the essential skills of advanced learning and higher education. In Rhetoric classes, students learn to think logically, to discover wrong or weak arguments, to build a good case on a controversial topic, and to overcome the all-too-common fear of speaking in public so that they can deliver crisp and well-prepared speeches.
Rhetoric is a fundamental building block of good education, whether it is followed by studies of Engineering, English or Entomology. Clear thinking, good argument, and logical discussion are essential to academic student success in any discipline and field. The better the essays you write, the better your grade. The stronger the presentations you make, the greater your academic success. The more you understand how to criticize and analyze what you read and study in Music, Mathematics or the Modern Languages, the stronger your education.
So why do we expect you to study Rhetoric at The University of Iowa? Because we want you to learn how to think at an advanced level suitable for university education. In the Rhetoric classroom, you will learn how to conduct rigorous and responsible knowledge production—from becoming more acute and attentive interpreters of the world around us to writing more deeply critical, meaningful and persuasive presentations and papers. We want you to learn how to contribute more usefully to discussions and to social debates, knowing what arguments are sound and what fallacies to avoid yourself or discover in others’ work and words. We want you to write the best essays you can write in the future, knowing the profound principles of composition and creative writing. We also know that you will need to speak in front of others throughout your life, and you will do it more effectively if you have studied some great speeches, understand what makes them great, and have the opportunity to practice those principles yourself.
Some people—the poorer students—regard Rhetoric as something to be “got out of the way”--an annoying GE requirement. We teach them too, but their view is rather like trying to make an omelet with no heat. The eggs will just sit there, uncooked, not reaching their potential to become a full meal. Likewise, your academic studies will not reach their full potential if you do not make the most of the value of rhetoric as a basis for higher learning, something that will take your high school skills to the next level.
“Your arguments will tend to prosper if they are founded on the common assumptions of your audience; or, in special cases, if the audience is minded to defer to your authority.” (p.48)

Persuasive Speech Outline
This is an outline on why Sign Language should be taught as a Foreign Language in all schools -- from the primary level through college. I am very passionate about the topic, which I believe shows in both the outline and written delivery speech. Make sure to change up sources to people you known, not only on your last page, but throughout the speech.
