The lesson begins with a classroom discussion on the "Do Now" question. While the answers may vary for the “Do Now” questions, students should realize that all advertisements provoke some sort of emotions (i.e., to purchase the company’s item and/or to join a company, military unit) and that recruitment advertisements is not a new phenomenon. Nations had been promoting, through various media means, young individuals to join their army units in times of war. This discussion would then lead into today’s lesson on propaganda in the First World War. In this lesson, students, working in groups of five, would analyze the various propaganda posters, which are provided to them, that the warring nations published during the war. The first group would examine three United States propaganda posters. The second group would analyze three British propaganda posters. The third group would evaluate three French
propaganda posters. The fourth group would evaluate three German propaganda posters. The fifth group would analyze three Russian/Soviet propaganda posters. The sixth group would
evaluate three Italian propaganda posters.
