"Law and Order" and "Lamb to the Slaughter" Lesson
Use "Law and Order" and "Lamb to the Slaughter" to teach ethos, pathos, and logos. Students read the story then write closing arguments for a trial against Mary Maloney. They analyze closing arguments from Law and Order and model their own arguments (complete with an example of each: ethos, pathos, logos). Students present their arguments to the jury - the class - to see whose argument is most persuasive.
