Have you ever tried to persuade someone to do something you wanted them to do or to agree with you about something? You probably gave them some reasons why you thought what you were requesting was a good idea or why they should see things from your point of view.

Presentations can be very effective when you want to persuade people, because they allow you to use both words and images to get your point across. Presentations can be used to persuade people to agree with an idea. They can also be used to persuade people to buy a product or service.

In this lesson, you will create a persuasive presentation in Google Slides.

Persuasive presentations, which are sometimes called “pitch presentations,” are common in business, but you can prepare one for almost any purpose, such as convincing people to contribute to a fundraiser or persuading your parents to let you get a new pet.

This lesson uses Google Slides, but you could apply these skills and concepts using most other presentation applications or even with paper and art supplies.

As you complete this project, you will: Create a title slide and select a presentation theme, Give an overview of your idea, Describe the benefits and costs of your idea, Describe the challenges you might face and your suggested solutions, And write a conclusion that includes a call to action.
