People persuade other people every day. Salespeople convince us to buy products, politicians persuade us to vote for them and you persuade people in your life to see things your way! This class will focus on the elements of persuasive speaking: language, appeals, techniques. Students will deliver several short speeches and one final speech. Join us to have some fun discovering the power of your persuasive voice!
