Persuasive Pitch Assignment

Fans of the TV shows “Shark Tank” and “Dragon’s Den” will love this Persuasive Pitch Assignment. Students will develop an idea of how to improve their school (e.g. installing recycling bins, creating a snack program, etc.) then they will pitch their idea to the judges (their classmates).

After all of the presentations, students will vote on which idea they would invest their money in. This assignment is scaffolded into 5 different lessons.

  • This resource contains individual PDFs of student pages to assist with online learning, i.e. Google Classroom™. The unit also comes with Google Slides™ versions of the included graphic organizers for 1:1 technology schools.

This assignment is also included in the Oral Presentations Bundle 2 and the Full Year Middle School English Language Arts Lesson Bundle 2
