TED-Ed Talk Analysis
The readers are familiar with TED-Ed but will not know which specific lessons are being written about. They want to learn what the two lessons have in common and whether they are effective at teaching.
The paper analyzes how different lessons teach similar concepts. The thesis will establish an analytical connection between two TED-Ed lessons (and not an obvious connection like “they’re both about cats”). As a comparative analysis of two lessons, the writer examines how well the lessons’ authors teach an audience, exploring how the lessons appeal to an audience (think: ethos, pathos, and logos).
