Step 8: Talk It Up
To get support for an issue, you have to be able to talk about it -- and in this step, students learn how to do that effectively. By developing and practicing both an elevator speech and a set of talking points, students come away prepared to persuade.
This resource was created with support from the National Association of Counties.
The student will:
- Draft an “elevator speech” about their issue
- Develop talking points to support their issue
- Adapt their elevator speech and talking points to various situations
