Food for thought…

8th Grade Propaganda Video Rubric

These propaganda films should be instructive as well as entertaining. After editing the complete films, should go back and revisit the clips and add titling/commentary to both define propaganda and explain each of the four techniques they chose to portray. Their films should teach the audience how each method can be used to lead and often mislead the thinking of viewers.

Propaganda techniques include:

  • Bandwagon – follow the crowd
  • Testimonial – celebrity endorsement
  • Glittering Generalities- broad vague statements
  • Plain Folk – the friend of the common man
  • Card stacking – presenting only one side of the issue
  • Name calling – giving the opponent a bad label
  • Transfer – associate a symbol with something else
