Product Description
Engage your students in exploring America's economic mobilization during World War II through using carefully selected propaganda posters along with a scaffolded FDR speech. This fun, collaborative learning activity involves students in defining what FDR meant by America becoming the "Arsenal of Democracy" through primary source analysis and then having students explore how citizens were asked to be part of this through propaganda poster analysis. Eight different posters are divided into two different handouts allowing students to explore different poster sets. A think-pair-share activity is included in the teacher lesson-plan to help direct students with different sets to engage in a discussion on themes and actions portrayed in their posters.

This product includes a teacher lesson plan, FDR speech supported with in-reading scaffolding for student reflection, two different student handouts of 4 propaganda posters each including questions to support analysis, and a student introductory reading on American economic mobilization during World War II.
