This lesson plan is for a short unit on making promotional films for elective classes to recruit students and to help students build their multimedia presentation skills as well as digital media literacy. The goal is to create a 2-3-minute example film that will promote elective classes and give reasons why students take specific programs and what their goals and intentions for these classes are. This is part of a unit that can be taught in as little as a week but would probably be best spaced out over at least 1-2 weeks.

This lesson extends over several class periods. Students view a Prezi presentation on Toulmin's argument and complete an assignment based on the presentation. Students then write an argument essay about the power of prevailing passion over reason.
