What Is a Persuasion Map?

The persuasion map is a tool that helps students to simplify the process of persuasive writing. Students can use it to prepare their arguments for persuasive essays and debates.

How to Create a Persuasion Map?

  • Choose your topic/ issue of interest for your essay, debate, speech, poster etc. Do your research around it and collect information.
  • Define the claim that you want to prove with your essay. Put this down in the first box of your persuasion map.
  • In the second layer of your persuasion map, you will list down the reasons for making this claim.
  • Here you can invite your peers to help you fill out the map. Share the document with them to get their input as well. Add comments or start a comment discussion thread to share your opinions during the process.
  • And in the third layer of the persuasion map, you will list down the reasons or facts to back up your reasoning.
  • You can use different colors to emphasize each different level of your persuasion map. These will highlight important details and make it easier to memorize.
  • Once you have added examples to support your claim, you can write down your conclusion at the bottom of your persuasion map.
  • Once you have completed the map, you can download it as a PNG, SVG, GIF, JPG, etc. and add it to your presentations or documents. Or simply take a printout to share with the rest of your class.
