Product Description

In this activity, students will role play that they are trapped in their school by the zombie apocalypse. They have to decide whether to stay at the school... or whether to leave the school for an alternate location. In order to make this precarious decision, they must weigh the pros and cons of both scenarios and then craft a persuasive speech to convince the class (the rest of their group) to go or to stay.

In this high-interest activity, students will employ the devices and techniques of persuasive writing and include rhetorical devices and appeals to persuade their audience. They will present their speeches to the class using visual aids to enhance their overall messages.

Students will take interest in this topic and at having the opportunity to be creative! This make a great unit for any time of year but especially Halloween!
