Product Description
This is one of my favorite lessons for Government class! Students learn about the tricks political campaigns use to convince voters to vote a certain way. Included is a power point featuring seven different propaganda techniques (along with their explanations), links to a website where students watch nine different campaign ads and discuss which techniques are used (an answer key is provided), as well as another assignment that allows students to implement their new-found knowledge of propaganda techniques in a fun way! One of the most important lessons many of my students learn from this assignment is to be vigilant when watching campaign ads. They learn to judge candidates based upon their stance on the issues, rather than sound bites. This assignment works well when studying elections or the media. - I Love Gov
