Discussing Propaganda Techniques in Online Political Ads
In this ReadWriteThink lesson, students read or view a literary text, and then identify and discuss examples of propaganda techniques in the text. Students then explore the use of propaganda in popular culture by looking at examples in the media. Students identify examples of propaganda techniques used in clips of online political advertisements and explain how the techniques are used to persuade voters. Students then explore the similarities of the propaganda techniques used in the literary text and in the online political ads to explain the commentary the text is making about contemporary society. The lesson concludes with students writing a persuasive essay in support of a given statement. In the lesson, some specific references are made to Brave New World as examples. ReadWriteThink is sponsored by the International Literacy Association and the National Council of Teachers of English.
