(S1C35) Big Ideas, Propaganda & 1984
The first documentary is required. Since we may not have time in class, you should watch this documentary in its entirety -- from home (flipped classroom!). Consult your Worksheet (above) in order to understand what you should take away from this documentary.
This second documentary is from the perspective of North Korea on Western propaganda. The film, which could be considered propaganda itself, does address some common propaganda techniques used by western countries, including sloganeering and "globalization." We will likely not have time to watch this one in class. You should watch the first 38 minutes of it at home using the Youtube link given below. Of course, you will need to take some of the material presented with a grain of salt! After all, it's the North Koreans.
