World War I Propaganda Poster Assignment


There are some amazing resources online for teaching about propaganda from WWI.

This website contains examples from various nations involved in the war.

All of the posters in this Georgetown exhibit are US posters.

And finally this website contains WWI propaganda postcards.

We have included a simple assignment that we’ve had fun with over the years in our classrooms that asks students to design their own posters using recognizable symbols.

If you are looking for other WWI resources, we have two PowerPoints,  one for US, the other World History.

Casualties in American wars

The United States has been involved in many entanglements over the years for various reasons, however the result is always the same, the death of young men doing their duty for our nation.

Whether people agree with the reasons for entering or exiting a conflict, all can agree that the loss of life is a tragic event.

This chart is included in a few of our PowerPoint presentations, as a way of illustrating the human cost of wars in general and the Civil War in particular.

We have included some questions that can used with the chart.
