Students learn the objectives, characteristics, and techniques of propaganda in World War I.
Students in groups look through the 40 pieces of World War I propaganda. They are assigned to arrange their propaganda into 4 categories.
- For Gifted & Talented Students: Have them create their own categories with 8 posters
- Modified Assignment: Provide them a number of predetermined categories with objectives or techniques.
Then students create their own piece of propaganda. I usually display their propaganda posters on the bulletin board for the quarter. A fun, engaging, and interactive lesson that gets students
- 40 Propaganda Posters (I print them as a slides handout and cut them for students)
- Blank Category Chart (Although Poster Paper is Advised)
- Worksheet explaining propaganda's objectives & techniques
- Reflection Worksheet (Great for exit card or writing assessment)
- Create Your Own Propaganda Poster Directions & Rubric
