Back to Africa
Deadline: Monday, November 19, 2012 by 08:00
Those who do not have their African country on the wall also means they received low marks for not following directions from the previous blog post on creating a African country.
This week's blog is a blog of persuasion. Persuasion is the act of convincing or changing someone else's mind, opinion, beliefs, or actions. Take a look at the photo of the apple. How do you interpret it? Is the apple on the left persuading the apple on the right to be happy? Or is the apple on the right persuading the other apple that he or she is "happy" even when it is not the case? Both interpretations are matters of persuasion.
Now, go back to your African country and persuade me that your country is the best in the class to visit. There are over 50 African countries to choose from for my next holiday. Will I pick yours?
Your blog post this week should:
- be a minimum of 100 words in length
- feature the best highlights in your African country (the climate, people, food, music, sports, animals, national parks, monuments, etc.)
- be creative and of course, persuasive!
If your country has had problems with natural disasters, famine, civil war, or political problems, you will have to be even more convincing as I may not want to go there. Show the very best side to your country for me to consider it. Remember, it does not matter how small or big your country is, there is always something you can find that could bring an adventurous tourist like me to come and visit.
Good luck to persuade me to visit your African country!
