Are you looking for a way to integrate drama in the classroom? Why not have students create a commercial to show understanding of persuasive techniques? This document includes a step-by-step project description and rubric for a commercial project. Students work in groups (3-4) and create short skits that include two persuasive/ propaganda techniques (bandwagon, snob appeal, etc.). (7-9)
This is a reference sheet to help students with various propaganda techniques (bandwagon, loaded words, testimonial, transfer, name-calling, facts & figures, glittering generalities, plain folks, and avant-garde).
This is a 24 slide PowerPoint that will help students to understand how Hitler used Nazi propaganda to promote anti-Semitism and allow the Final Solution to take place. There are many examples of propaganda displayed as well as a description of the techniques used to persuade the Germans to accept Nazi beliefs. Students will be able to work together to decide how persuasive and effective a Nazi propaganda poster is and the techniques that were used.
