Active workshop on How does Propaganda Work
October 27, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
This workshop is inspired by the Historiana learning activity “How does propaganda work?” At the end of this activity, students will be able to define the term propaganda and identify different techniques that are deployed to make propaganda work. They will consider how the intended audience for a piece of propaganda shapes how it is produced and presented. They will categorise and analyse some sources which are propaganda from World War I. They will then identify for themselves some examples of modern propaganda and compare them to the definitions and the propaganda from 1914-18 to assess the similarities and differences between the historic and the contemporary. They will produce a short ‘how to?’ guide to present to younger students to demonstrate their learning.
