This course is targeted towards students who are operating at the higher end of the Level Five curriculum. Some NCEA credits will be offered throughout the year, for those students who are capable and willing to achieve them.

In this block, we will be discussing the art of persuasion, especially when it comes to being a persuasive speaker. We'll watch a few persuasive speakers, and analyse some speaking techniques that they use in order to make you believe them.

You can then use the persuasive skills you learn from this class to start your own cult, and take over the world.

Students will need access to a device (one which they know how to use responsibly in class).
