Persuasive Techniques: Lessons and activities

Overall rating 4 out of 54.6 (72 ratings)

Last updated 03 April 2014, created 17 February 2009, viewed 101,153

The resource contains a powerpoint presentation covering persuasive writing techniques, with notes in the booklet/worksheets. I started lesson one with persuasive techniques bingo (from Teachit) to illustrate the range of rhetorical techniques before focusing students on the 8 techniques in the PERSUADE mnemonic.
