Discussion Board: WWII Propaganda Posters

During times of war, governments often resort to propaganda. For this discussion, you will apply what you know about critical readingmaking inferences, and propaganda to review propaganda posters generated during the time of World War II.

Directions

  1. Choose three of the WWII propaganda posters to review.
  2. Open a new Google Doc and copy and paste the URL of each of the three posters into the doc.
  3. Under the URL of each poster, apply what you know about critical reading by answer the following about each poster:
    • Who is the creator of these images?
    • Why were they created?
    • Who is the target audience?
    • What biases are they portraying?
    • What is the perspective of the creators of the posters?
    • How effective are the posters in persuading someone to think, believe, or act in a certain way about something?
  4. Copy and paste the responses to the propaganda posters you developed in the Google Doc as your Primary Post in the discussion.
  5. Review your classmates’ posts.
  6. Thoughtfully respond to your classmates about whether you agree or disagree with their responses to the propaganda posters.
