    evaluate persuasion

    ading Skill: Evaluate Persuasion
    Read the following passage from President John F. Kennedy's speech, "We Choose to Go to the Moon," which he gave on September 12, 1962. Then, answer the question(s).

    "...this generation does not intend to founder in the backwash of the coming age of space. We mean to be a part of it—we mean to lead it. For the eyes of the world now look into space, to the moon and to the planets beyond, and we have vowed that we shall not see it governed by a hostile flag of conquest, but by a banner of freedom and peace....We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win...."

    15. In this passage, what type of appeal does Kennedy primarily use?

    A. appeal to reason

    B. appeal to logic

    C. expert evidence

    D. appeal to emotion
