Week 2 – Different Speaking Styles

Developing Debating Skills (all ages)

In Lesson 2, we learnt about different speaking styles and techniques, and how these are persuasive to an audience.

The three key stylistic techniques we focused on were:

  1. Varying your style
  2. Contrasts and comparisons
  3. Three point lists

During the week, listen out for stylish speakers at school, on the TV and when you are out! Make a list of these speakers and what techniques they use, and see if they use any of the techniques we focused on in our lesson.

Use the sheet below to make note of your stylish speakers!
