Product Description
Persuasion is an art, and students need to begin to realize that it is all around them every single day!

I suggest showing students a short clip from Shark Tank to begin the discussion on persuasion, and how it can be used to get what you want!

In this first part of the unit, students will be choosing their topic (an item that they are going to try and sell, just like on shark tank).
Once students have chosen their topic, they will give their item a name (for example "Maddy's Marvelous Markers" or "Ava's Comfy Shoe Inserts").

Students will then go through the outline, and come up with a hook for their audience, a strong thesis statement, their intended audience and then they will look at the list of persuasive techniques and choose at least 3 types that they would like to include in their essay.

For the 3 included homework assignments, students will be given the opportunity to look at commercials or advertisements and look for persuasive techniques, as well as decide how persuaded they felt.

Included:

Persuasive Essay Outline

List of Persuasive Tenchniques
