This lesson on WW1 Propaganda has students utilizing higher-level thinking skills to analyze 15 primary source propaganda posters. Everything you need is included for the lesson plan, including a worksheet, 15 full color propaganda posters, and an answer key.
The worksheet explains the 5 main objectives of wartime propaganda and has students come up with their own personal definition of propaganda. They then determine the goal of each poster based on the objectives. This provides a framework for students to work but also encourages them to think critically, analyze each poster, and determine its effectiveness. After completing the chart of these objectives, four analysis questions provide an opportunity to voice their opinion on the posters.
Finally, students create their own propaganda poster on the back of their worksheet based on what they have studied. This is a fantastic lesson plan that reaches all students and caters to varying learning styles!
A digital Google Drive version of the resource is also included with the download along with an answer key.
