Buy on TPT



This Animal Farm activity covers propaganda in several ways. Animal Farm by George Orwell is perfect time to teach propaganda techniques. Engage students by showing them the long-lasting consequences of laws, forms of government, and suppression with these activities.

Specifically Included in this Animal Farm activity:

✓ A 32-slide presentation that covers euphemism, name calling, glittering generality, deification, transfer, plain folks, bandwagon, stalling, least of evils, scapegoat, and fear.

• The first half of the presentation covers definitions.

• The second half covers examples of each type of propaganda in Animal
Farm. This format allows you to present information without “spoiling” the
story for students.

✓ A note-taking packet of for every type of propaganda for students to complete as they read.

You can use this Animal Farm activity throughout your teaching of the novella or as a review. Students will be able to identify propaganda activities, think critically about them, and apply them to their lives.

Ideas for use with this Animal Farm activity:

I typically teach the first half before reading the novel, have the students complete the note-taking packet while reading, and then review the final half of the presentation as review as we finish Animal Farm.
