The art of persuasion



Swaying the voter

Look for articles in the St. Petersburg Times, in print or online, that focus on the elections. Identify at least two of these campaign techniques candidates or the media are using. How does understanding the techniques help people become better voters? Discuss how this information can help you and others make better voting decisions. Some of these techniques also are used in ads to make them more persuasive. Look through ads in the Times and identify ads where these techniques were used. Share your thoughts here on the NIE Blogging Zone.
