Language and Power Continues

Grade 11’s you will take the work that you constructed in your RSA animation video a step further…

The video you created will be included in you ‘Language and Power iBook’

As will a few other items…

This week, we will focus on PROPAGANDA.

Let’s start here:

Why would the US government use cartoons here?  How are they ‘abusing the power of language’? What emotional response does this video hope to attempt?

In teams (feel free to assemble a new group if you’d like) of no larger than five students, you will be creating propaganda for the graduating class of 2014.


For Guidance:


Time to join the conversation.  Please post your thinkings in our forum:
