The scenario: You and two of your friends are at Starbucks drinking coffee. Suddenly, you all hear about a popular environmental topic as it comes on the news. Each of you then begin having a friendly debate about the issue as you try to persuade your friends that you are the one that is right.
Directions: With your partners, you will need to create a 2-3 minute skit that will demonstrate your understanding of the persuasive techniques. Each partner will be assigned one persuasive technique that they should use to try to persuade the other friends. In the course of your skit, each partner needs to use their persuasive technique at least three times. The class will be evaluating how you use the technique and exactly how persuasive you truly are!
