Answer the following questions thoroughly and thoughtfully in a post of no less than 200 words.

  1. Based on preliminary ideas and the interview with Jean Twenge, which rhetorical appeal does Twenge seem to rely on the most? Ethos, pathos, logos, or kairos.
    1. Why would that rhetorical appeal be an effective move to persuade her audience?
  2. In terms of context, what does the video, “Your Phone is Trying to Control Your Life” explain as a reason for an increase in phone usage in the last few years?
    1. How can you relate to the information from the video?
  3. Lastly, The National Institute of Health conducted a study of thousands of children over a decade (information can be found in the video “NIH Study Tracks Effects of Social Media”). If this study were referenced in an article, what would the rhetorical appeal(s) be?
    1. Why or why not would that be a convincing enough study to prove that social media plays a direct role in increased depression and suicide in teens?
    2. the link for the video https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=MA8q88nEEwM
