Video for persuasion: emotional appeals

Episode description

Simpsons: Season 9, episode 21

In this episode, Bart and Lisa co-anchor a news show directed at kids. Bart creates a segment called “Bart’s People” to feature human-interest stories. Bart’s clips provide a nice example of empty emotional appeals and why they may be effective in the short-term but will fail in long-term persuasive goals.

About teachingpublicspeaking

I believe public speaking can go from most dreaded class to favorite class. I'm a former public speaking college instructor who spent years seeking out activities, assignments and examples to make the class interactive as well as educational -- they are collected here. I welcome suggestions for additions.
