What is Propaganda?

Rationale:Propaganda has been used throughout history by leaders and governments to influence their citizens during times of national conflict and/or crisis. However, its use was escalated to an entirely new level during World War I. In order for students to understand the concept of propaganda and how and why it was and is used to influence people, it is necessary to examine primary sources from this time period, and compare it to how modern governments have used this technique in recent history to sway the American population to accomplish foreign and domestic policy goals.

This lesson is designed to teach students about the use of propaganda during World War I through the examination and analysis of primary sources

We advertise for our own ideal, and therefore we fight using all good means to make good propaganda to win the soul of our people"
