Persuasion-Kennedy-Nixon Paper

Paper Instructions

Topic

Personal appearance can have a great impact on the effectiveness and perceived credibility of a speaker. Research materials on the Kennedy-Nixon debates and watch an excerpt of the debate via the following link: http://archive.org/details/1960_kennedy-nixon_2.

This essay is based on the 1960 presidential debate between John Kennedy and Richard Nixon, which was the first presidential debate ever to be televised. Kennedy at the time was considered to be young, handsome and charismatic, Nixon was more of an “old-school” politician and did not embrace the camera as Kennedy did. Kennedy, of course, went on to win the election. In this essay, you are asked to discuss the nonverbal behaviors of each of the candidates and what influence they had on the outcome of the debate.

Submit a 3-5 page paper to the Turnitin Dropbox within Canvas discussing how nonverbal communication, specifically nonverbal persuasion, played an important role in the debate.
