Pixar Pitch

I spent part of the half-term reading Dan Pink’s new book ‘To Sell is Human’.

Don’t be put off by the title. Pink’s message is that selling is no longer the preserve of the salesperson; everyone is now in sales, including educators. Each day we sell our message to students.

One of my favourite chapters is about pitching. There are a number of ideas that could be used with students, particularly when summarising knowledge.

One that I’m going to have a play with, and is mentioned in the video, is the Pixar Pitch. The idea is based on the format of stories told within a Pixar movie. This week I’m going to try adapting it as a plenary activity.
