Term 3 sees us begin our FPS study of Propaganda. 

" Every day, we are bombarded with one persuasive communication after another. These appeals persuade not through the give-and-take of argument and debate, but through the manipulation of symbols and of our most basic human emotions. For better or worse, ours is an age of propaganda."
                                                                                                 Pratkanis and Aronson, 1991

*Start by becoming familiar with the term and definitions

* Look into the types and styles of progaganda (as listed below)

* Discover the many images and pictures of propaganda posters related to marketing, politics, wartime, and mass media (google images)

* Bring a propaganda poster to class on Monday to share
