Art of Persuasion 1

Today you will be working in groups to analyse a short speech or extract.

Each group will give a presentation to the class, covering the following points:

  1. What is the speaker’s aim or objective?
  2. What techniques does the speaker use?
  3. What ideals or principles does the speaker appeal to?
  4. In what ways is the speech similar or different to others we have seen.
