Overall rating 4 out of 54.3 (6 ratings)

Last updated 03 March 2014, created 04 November 2011, viewed 6,257

A follow on lesson - from the contextual one on Private Peaceful (also found here on tes) - looks at propaganda and persuasive techniques. Students get to vote if they would have fought in WWI or be a conscientious objector. Don't forget your sugar jar and 3 bags of sugar!

Thank you so much. We are having an Ofsted soon and I will be using lots of the ideas here. A thoughtful and imaginative way of delivering WW1 propaganda and recruitment tactics. Lesson plan was easy to follow too.
