Name: Mr. Ankeny Persuasive Thesis Statement: Riding you bike to school is better than driving your car.

Ethos: 1. I have driven a car for 9 years, and rode a bike for 23 years. 2. I have researched the effects of car pollution on the environment. 3. I have worked for 10 years, both driving to work and riding my bicycle there. Pathos: 1. Riding your bike makes you happy, and everyone wants to be happy. 2. Riding your bike gets you in shape, which improves your figure and self-esteem. 3. Driving in your car is comfortable and convenient, but it costs more money and pollutes the earth, things that harm you and future generations. Logos: 1. Riding your bike is better for you b/c it is exercise. Exercise makes you happy and healthy. 2. Riding your bike is better for the environment. 3. Riding your bike is better for innovation. Fact: Shown by deductive reasoning: 1. Exercise makes you happy (releases endorphins). 2. Riding your bike is exercise. 3. Riding your bike makes you happy.
