Activity 3 – Making persuasive claims in an oral presentation
In this activity, students develop an effective introduction and an effective conclusion to their oral presentation making persuasive claims. They will use the outline developed in Activity 2 on their project/product in order to organise and develop their presentation and list the main arguments. The expected outcome is a presentation that provides persuasive arguments, evidence and counter-arguments.
- Individually each student takes the plan in activity 2 and designs an effective introduction and conclusion to the presentation. First, they learn about effective persuasive oral presentation openings, which are attention-catching, and effective endings, which call to action. Then, they decide on the structure of their own openings and endings and take notes with key ideas to develop in their oral presentation. (OUT OF CLASS) Module 2-Task 3-Activity 3a
