This project uses all levels of Bloom's - Students will build research skills as they analyze and revise a WWII era propaganda poster!
This project can conclude a brief (or intensive!) unit on the American homefront during WWII. Students will apply knowledge of the homefront as they breakdown the explicit and implicit messages of propaganda posters, and compare those messages to the historical realities they have studied. Students will then deepen their knowledge by conducting independent research into the historical topic which their chosen propaganda posters portrays. Students will apply their research by creating their own historically accurate posters. Finally, students will write a brief paper that connects their analysis of the original poster to the new poster they made, while citing their research to support those changes. Students will appreciate each other's posters through a guided gallery walk.
