   Notes: Propaganda

   Propaganda:
Something that tries
to PERSUADE you
  Why is it important to understand
             propaganda?
•It can be misleading!
•People often try to pass their
OPINIONS off as FACTS
•People often have hidden agendas
•Propaganda often tries to keep you
from forming your OWN opinions
       Propaganda often:
• Only presents one side of the story;
  leaves out important information
• Uses vague, meaningless words or
  statistics
• Uses strong language, graphic images, or
  other attention-getting techniques that
  often EXAGGERATE or MISLEAD
• Uses irrelevant emotions or makes
  illogical connections to persuade you
    Questions to ask yourself about
             propaganda:
• Is the main purpose to
  EDUCATE/INFORM or to
  ENTERTAIN/PERSUADE?
• Where is the information coming from? Is
  this a biased or objective source?
• What AREN’T you being told??
• What do statistics and comparisons
  REALLY mean?
         Some examples:
• 100% of the people I surveyed said
  that I am THE BEST teacher they
  know!
• 10 people in this class passed the
  test… Only 5 people in my other
  class passed. You did twice as well!
• This is the best school I’ve ever
  taught in!
