Persuasive Writing: Pitch Your Business Idea (Ages 10-13)
In this workshop, students will learn how to write a “Shark Tank” or “Dragons’ Den”-style pitch to persuade the judges that their business idea is worthy of investment. Besides coming up with their idea, students will conduct research on their target customers and analyse successful pitches to identify key features that make them effective. With all their preparation in hand, they will then craft and script their own pitch!
