Perfect activities for introducing the 7 types of propaganda and censorship! Use before or during your teaching of Animal Farm, 1984, Among the Hidden, Brave New World, The Hunger Games and many other texts, in a lesson about World War II, or all by itself for a fun, interactive look at propaganda today! Use in interactive notebooks, in literacy centers, in pairs, in groups, or as individual activities. This versatile min-unit can be used in so many ways your students will love.
This 8-page packet includes a two-page article on the 7 types of propaganda - glittering generalities, name-calling, transfer, bandwagon, testimonial, plain folks, and card-stacking, plus a brief look at censorship. From there, students can either complete a two-page activity answering questions about the article, a two-page identification of modern advertisements using these propaganda techniques, or they can complete an activity in which they find their own examples of modern propaganda techniques. For a challenge, students could even complete all three exercises! Answer key is included. Recommended for higher-level middle school through high school.
