Propaganda Analysis and Public Education: A Study of the Goal of Teaching American Youth an Awareness and an Understanding of Political Propaganda.
Kelley, Joseph Gerard
In order to make a case for the study of political propaganda in the secondary English curriculum, this study details the history of previous attempts to incorporate the issue into the structure of formal education and presents a model unit for use in the contemporary educational system. Designed to move the student through the study of connotation and denotation, myth, George Orwell's "Newspeak," stereotypes, S.I. Hayakawa's theories about symbol and thing, and euphemisms, the curriculum model also provides a detailed exploration of the relationship between language and propaganda. A series of lessons proposed in this study considers the propagandist, propaganda techniques, the media of propaganda, recurrent themes, and the topic audience. (Author/KS)
