by Stacey Lloyd
7th - 9th Grade

By the time students get to middle school, or even high school, they usually know the names of persuasive language techniques. However, they still need to practice identifying and explaining them in use. These FREE worksheets will help facilitate that process.


NOTE: These digital worksheets are designed to be used with Google Slides™. If you would prefer a PRINT VERSION, CLICK HERE!



20 Techniques of Persuasive Language: This one-slide informational resource covers twenty common techniques of persuasion found in advertising, propaganda and persuasive speeches and writing. It is useful for students to keep in their notebooks.

Identifying Persuasive Techniques in Advertizing: This activity puts students’ knowledge of persuasive language to the test by requiring them to identify how techniques are used in extracts from advertisements. This is a great way for students to see the ‘everyday’ usage of these concepts.

Identifying Persuasive Techniques in a Political Speech: This exercise focuses on an extract from Winston Churchill’s speech “Blood, Toil, Tears and Sweat”. Students are required to read the extract and then complete the table, identifying the effects of the different techniques.

Using Persuasive Techniques: This activity requires students to put their knowledge into action by writing their own persuasive sentences with the use of persuasive language techniques.

*Answer Keys included where necessary.*
