Persuade Me

Practice persuasive writing and speeches with this lesson plan. Middle schoolers brainstorm the components of presentations by watching videos of sample speeches (if available), and ways the people delivering the speeches demonstrate correct components. The class creates a rubric for scoring speeches. They then prepare persuasive presentations after completing research and finding strong evidence. As students present their speeches, they are scored with the class rubric.

Lesson Planet helps me find fantastic ideas to spin off of and approach with my alternative education high school students. They can be difficult to motivate and sometimes when I'm just out of ideas- this site gives me just what I need to add to motivate them!
