In this fun, multi-day writing and video project, groups of students just learning about rhetorical analysis, ethos/pathos/logos, and other essentials work together to launch a new political party, write a short speech, then adapt that speech to each of the audiences they encounter on the campaign trail! This project bundle includes a detailed teacher's guide, editable student handout and rubric, and the slides from the prezi introducing the project to students (linked in the teacher's guide). Whether your students are in AP Language or starting these skills earlier, this is a great way to help students connect to what they already know about persuasion!
