Propaganda

Summer Institute for k-12 Teachers

June 22 - 24, 2020

What are the features, uses, and histories of propaganda? What techniques have governments and political movements used to construct and convey messages?  How is propaganda related to the construction of national (or other) identities? Is propaganda entirely culture-specific, or are there universal features of this mode of communication?

As we head into another presidential election season, the ORIAS Summer Institute for k-12 teachers offers teachers an exploration of propaganda from different places and times. This program will draw on a variety of disciplines and will feature numerous examples of propaganda from around the world.

Teachers who wish to receive professional development credit will be expected to attend an extended afternoon session, during which they  each develop a mini-lesson featuring one or more of the pieces of propaganda they encounter during the week. Teams of teachers are encouraged to attend and build curriculum together. Up to 10 teachers can earn professional development credit. This option is free for teachers.

This institute is open to k-12 teachers across disciplines. There is no cost to attend. Space is limited.
