This worksheet should be used preparation for a persuasive essay or speech. Students read through three excerpts of speeches and identify how the speaker used emotional appeals to make a point.
Speakers may be using fear, compassion, pride, anger, guilt, or reverence to persuade their audience. It is essential that students can identify this common persuasion technique in order to be critical thinkers and effective persuasive speakers and writers!
This is a great group activity and can easily extend a class period. I typically have students attempt to write their own emotional appeal.
