Propaganda. Social Studies, Language Arts: 6470.06.
Abrams, Grace C.; Schmidt, Fran C.
Types and techniques of propaganda and its effects on American Life are discussed in this elective social studies course for 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students. Since young people today are bombarded with conflicting ideas disseminated through mass media, it becomes imperative that students become more knowledgeable about propaganda and its impact on their lives and on the total culture. In this course the student learns the techniques of propaganda, studies the intent and purpose of the propagandist, and distinguishes fact from opinion and bias from objectivity. The guide is divided into four major sections: 1) course goals; 2) a course content outline; 3) objectives and learning activities; and 4) recommended lists of supplemental reading materials, films, filmstrips, and guides.
