It's just like Facebook except it's boring, full of homework assignments and no fun to visit. Enjoy.

Rubric and Clinton/Trump Debate

Hey Gang,

With your impending persuasive speeches approaching I wanted to make sure you knew how you were going to be evaluated. With that in mind, I handed out the rubric I’m going to use for assessment. Have a look over and ask me if there’s anything your not sure about.

In case you lost it, here it is again.


Next we turned out attention to the election happening in the United States. Where better to look at the nature of persuasive speech than at two people who are trying to persuade an entire nation to get on side. To that effect, we started by looking at the Trump and Clinton websites, taking time to watch some promotional material.

After that we watch a few debate segments and discussed what techniques each candidate used.
