The rhetorical situation
Rhetorical problem:
The rates of cigarette smoking among high school students in America are higher than those of adults. Teens are easy targets for the tobacco industry. Having cancer may not seem like real concerns, teens don’t think much about future health outcomes.
The purpose is to engage and convince high school students to stop smoking. A change in the young peoples attitude and action could help them minimize their chance of getting cancer.
The audience is a group of young people, 17-18 years old, from an American high school class.
The speaker:
I am a young representative of “American Cancer Society”. Recently done a “stop ...view middle of the document...

) I underline my purpose and tell them how I believe we can cure cancer together (pathos/representatives.)
I will brief repeat my points (informative/logos). I will advice them to support and contact the organization (informative/ethos.) Thanking the audience for listening and give the last punch line to engage and convince them of the purpose (representatives/pathos.)

Hello everyone. My name is Emilie, 25 years old, and I work as a volunteer for American Cancer Society. I am here today because you asked me to come and talk about my recent campaign called “teen tobacco use.” First of all I want to thank you, not only because you asked me to come, but also because you realized the importance of focusing on this topic for your own future health.
Firstly I am going to discuss the tobacco use in high schools, as a framework for my speech. Secondly, I will discuss tobacco addiction and thirdly ways that you can help others to quit smoking. The purpose is to engage you guys to stop smoking. I will persuade you to go home and make that smoker you know live longer.

Introduction to subject
This speech is a bit different, because I want to start out with my conclusion. In every class an average of four people had lost a loved one because of smoking. Another ten people in this class often inhale second hand smoke. Why should you let a loved one die? Or even worse, why should you let them poison you with their habit? Maybe you are thinking: “This won’t happen to me, I will never get cancer.” And no you won’t – if you stop smoking now!
Example: Let me give you an example of the problem: I used to smoke for eight years, since I was 15 years old, and I never thought of the dangers caused by smoking. Finally I quit smoking two years ago. The first thing I noticed was the deeper breaths I could take, the cleaner smell of my clothes, my bedroom and my car. I want to thank my father for making me quit smoking, if it wasn’t for him, I would never be here today.

Head speech
Argument 1: When you Light Up
Let me start by looking at the tobacco use in high schools – and how dangerous it is to start smoking when you are young.
Imagine a morning you wake up and on the breakfast table you have waiting for you a mixture of 4000 different chemicals – which are proven to give you cancer: Nicotine, Ammonia, Tar and Carbon Monoxide. And you would have that mixture three more times before lunch, four after lunch and probably two before you go to bed – for the rest of your life. No, that’s not what most of us would call a breakfast. But about 1 out of 5 high school student in America inhale those chemicals every day. And every day more than 2000 kids try cigarettes for the first time.
Smoking is the leading cause of dead in the United States. It kills a total of 5,4 million people each year. Teens are easy targets for the tobacco industry. Some teens think smoking looks sexy or cool; others hope cigarettes will...
