Types of Propaganda

Types of Propaganda | English | Scoop.it
ProProfs Quiz Maker - This is a simple quiz assessing the knowledge of students who have just learned about the types of propaganda.
Toby Romanin's insight:

Can you see past media marketing ploys? This quiz will test your knowledge of propaganda commonly used by media and marketing companies.

Once completed, there are a few questions I want to pose to you.

Firstly, whom of you have bought something just because your friends have it? Can you give me examples and explain why you think your friends have bought it in the first place?

Now that we have identified these sources of information, if we look in a broader context do you think television, newspapers, the internet could influence us like marketing advertisers do?

Critical Literacy: Tackling Difficult Topics with Picturebooks

University of British Columbia - 25th May 2013 Alexis Birner (M.Ed) gives a presentation at the University of British Columbia (UBC) about Critical Literacy....
Toby Romanin's insight:

Critical literacy is the ability to deconstruct text (especially those found in the media) to determine the key concepts that shape cultural norms. In essence, we are being taught to be critical, independent thinkers when it comes to viewing media texts.

As students, you must think independently and always question why things are the way they are. As such, this Scoop concerns itself with this topic but it has been adapted in a way that the content being taught is communicated through picture books. This is a pretty cool idea in an otherwise content heavy subject.
