This WW2 (WWII) mini lesson on US home front propaganda includes 21 images of propaganda posters and 17 discussion questions. After studying and discussing propaganda, the students will make their own poster. The requirements and expectations for the poster activity are on the last slide. This is a sample from my World War 2 power point.

Sample questions include:

--Why was propaganda needed to mobilize Americans?

--Why were different posters created for the same audience?

--Compare and contrast the emotions you feel today looking at these posters and the emotions someone in 1943 would have felt.

--In what ways can propaganda be positive or negative?

***there is pertinent information in the presenter's notes of the power point, please make sure you look at them***
