Persuasive Techniques: Lessons and activities

Overall rating 4 out of 54.6 (81 ratings)

Last updated 25 September 2014, created 17 February 2009, viewed 113,401

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.

An excellent resource. Some very good examples, I used it when teaching Martin Luther Jr's speech. Thank you.

I think the use of the word "negro" needs to be reviewed. This isn't politically correct and could cause offence.
