You are a Sports Agent that represents talented people. A talent Agent may represent them to help pursue their talent as a career. Most artists, performers, and athletes have Agents.
You are an Agent with the company Elite Athlete Media Group. Your group needs to make a decision on which one of the two soccer players to represent. You want the best athlete, so it’s important you have evidence from the statistics to support your argument.
TASK- The “Persuaders”
Complete the following steps to take on the role of a Sports Agent
- Take a statistic sheet for Lynn Williams or Amy Rodriguez and divide into 2 groups, A and B.
- Study the statistics to be able to persuade who is the best player between group A and group B.
- After listening to the discussion and arguments, the company’s owner (your teacher) will approve which athlete the company will bring in to represent.
HINT: You are working as two groups to decide on which athlete (Lynn or Amy) is best for the company. Come up with arguments for each and in the end make a decision as a group.
(_______ is better because her “shots on goal” is ______ which is better than_________.)
In your journal, reflect upon what you enjoy or do not enjoy about a persuading activity.
