Propaganda poster

  1. 1. PROPAGANDA IMAGES Utopia/Dystopia Literature Unit
  2. 2. What would be your propaganda poster for your novel’s dystopian society?
  3. 3. Based on our analysis of propaganda advertisements, use your dystopian society novel to create a propaganda advertisement produced by the “government/power.” What message does the “government” in your novel want to get across to the people. What are they covering up? What are they controlling? What sacrifices are the people forced to face? How can the they put a positive spin on things? For example: How can the government, in Matched make people believe it’s ok to kill the elderly? How can the government, in Divergent, make people choose one fraction or another? In Hunger Games, why is it ok for the districts to send two kids to fight to the death? These are just a few obvious examples from a few of the books.
  4. 4. Dystopian Propaganda Poster Assignment: You will be graded on the quality of the following ideas: 1. Theme- Determine the theme or central idea of the text, and analyze its development over the course of the text, including its relationship to the characters, setting, and plot. Have you chosen a theme that reflects a social issue in the novel? 2. Slogan- Your slogan needs to creatively address a social issue as well as persuade us that it’s “best” for the people. 3. Images and symbols- Images and symbols are used to represent the theme of the novel. Present claims and findings, emphasizing salient points in a focused, coherent manner with relevant evidence, sound reasoning, and well-chosen details. Use images to connect to your novel. 4. Persuasive qualities- Images and words should persuade, through argument, national loyalty, interest, or emotional quality.
