I love this activity!! In this Identifying Propaganda Techniques Worksheet, students are given a picture of a political candidate giving a campaign speech. In something a bit like a scavenger hunt, they read through the speech and analyze the image, hunting down every example of propaganda they can find.
Nearly every line from the speech utilizes a different propaganda technique, and don't forget to check the slogan on the podium and the flag hanging behind the candidate -- you might find Glittering Generalities and Transfer hard at work! Students circle or underline every type of propaganda they can find in the image, draw arrows, and identify the technique in the margins of the page.
A really fun activity that can be done individually, in pairs, or in small groups, this serves as great practice for Middle and High School Civics and American Government students!
Aligned to the Florida State Standard for 7th Grade Civics, SS.7.C.2.11 Bias, Symbolism, and Propaganda, this resource includes several different examples of the following propaganda techniques:
Some examples of the propaganda hiding in the campaign speech include:
This is such a fun enrichment activity to practice propaganda techniques. Your kids will have so much fun searching for every last bit of propaganda and marking up the page!
