Manipulation Through the Arts: Propaganda During the Cold War
Meghan LeRoux, Ed.S.
In this 5 week online course, students will learn about how propaganda was used in the Cold War, specifically through the use of the arts: visual art, film, television, and music.
Learners will be taught an overview of the Cold War before jumping into the definition and examples of propaganda before getting into the specifics of Cold War propaganda. The topics every week will be as follows: Week 1: What was the Cold War? What is propaganda? We will also discuss the propaganda tactics of both the USSR and the USA. This will be done through lecture/notes. Week 2: Propaganda Posters of the Cold War. Students will be taught how to analyze posters as primary sources and...
Students will be able to explain the role of propaganda as a tool of government control and evaluate the efficiency of propaganda.
Teacher will provide all source materials. The student has the option of choosing a project requiring access to technology that can create TV ads/short films. If the students chooses that option, access to editing software would be ideal.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Since we're discussing the Cold War, video clips containing the atomic bomb and its aftermath will be viewed. As far as the propaganda, multiple perspectives will be discussed and the teachers own personal beliefs/feelings will never be shared or discussed with the students. Students will also be taught the expectations/etiquette of how to agree/disagree with one's peers without being disrespectful. Students that are disrespectful will be asked to stop first, if the behavior continues the student will be put into the waiting room and parents will be contacted after class. Student will get a chance to come back for the next class, but if the behavior continues the student will be removed from the class permanently.
