This lesson leads students through a wealth of primary sources from pathe news, government films and information leaflets. It analyses how the government in WWII used propaganda to rally and convince the nation to stand firm against Hitler and how they could endure and eventually win the war. How effective and convincing their messages were is up to the students to decipher and judge for themselves. Primary evidence, which not surprisingly give a positive outlook on events such as the evacuation of Dunkirk, Churchill’s radio broadcasts and the bombing of cities, is used; but how effective is their message and will the nation adhere to their warnings about spying and what not to say? Students are questioned throughout the slides and complete some independent research on the types of propaganda posters published such as ‘play your part, salvage and careless talk.’ A differentiated task at the end builds upon the evidence and judgements they have made. The lesson comes complete with embedded videos and a lesson plan on how to use the activities.
