Persuasive Techniques: Lessons and activities

author avatar

Created by

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.

    Lots of ways in for beginning students. I particularly like the appeal to character section which is often only assumed knowledge and not explicitly taught, thank you.
