If you're unaware, a persuasive speech is one in which you attempt to convince your audience that a certain point of view or idea is better than another.
This lesson will detail how you can design a rubric to both set expectations for your students and assess their performance on a persuasive speech activity.
Every rubric, no matter what it is used to assess, will have several categories of performance as well as a point scale.
The rubric designed in this lesson will have five categories, each scored on a 4 point scale (0-3).
You will also see questions you can include on a student checklist to help set your expectations for their performance and allow them to monitor their work.
This rubric will be scored based on five categories: Introduction, Argument, Performance, Conclusion, and Overall Delivery.
