Elementary School Persuasive Speech Unit
Plymouth Massachusetts has provided lessons for their district’s 3rd grade persuasive speech unit. How to write an opinion piece and how to deliver a persuasive speech are included here.
From the website:
“Listening is powerful. Why practice listening? Because listening comprehension is fundamental to literacy.”
In addition to listening for comprehension, we believe the podcasts at the site offer opportunities for listening for analyzing speaking skills. Don’t just listen for information, listen for how the information is presented.
