This is the perfect packet to introduce persuasion to your classroom! This packet introduces six persuasive techniques, includes a jigsaw activity and contains a corresponding quiz and answer key.
The six techniques (Appeal to Authority, Bandwagon, Emotional Appeal, Poisoning the Well, Repetition and Rhetorical Question) are introduced with a student handout providing a definition, an example, and space for students to write their own example.
The Jigsaw Activity includes teacher and student instructions. Students teach the techniques to their classmates by creating posters and skits. Posters can then be displayed throughout the room!
The corresponding quiz contains 12 questions designed to assess students' grasp upon the techniques.
The lessons plans, activities and materials in this pack are from my complete Persuasive Writing Unit
