Campaign Kick-off

In August 2010, Behind the News reported on the persuasive devices used in politics to encourage Australians to vote for their idea. This week grade 5 students will do just that!

By watching this report, I hope it helps your group create a crafty and persuasive campaign to encourage other grade 5 students to vote for your team’s idea to develop or improve an area of our school.

To have the best chance of success, your team will also want to consider having the following the support their campaign:

  • Political Party Name

  • Party Slogan http://www.winyourcampaign.com/Slogans.html

  • Persuasive Speech

  • Print media (posters and flyers)

  • Badges

  • Commercials

  • Debate

  • How to Vote cards (with preference deals with other groups)


    Your chance to comment – If you could only have one tool to campaign – which one do you think would be the most effective and why?
