Today in class we discussed propaganda and reviewed the different techniques that the media uses to convince us of things.  You will need to know eight different types of propaganda, how to identify them in the media, and how to identify them in Animal Farm.  You can view the presentation we used by clicking here.

We also reviewed the Kings and Queens of England from Henry II to James II.  Make sure you can tell this story and identify specific ways that each king or queen’s actions led to more power being taken away from the monarch or the pope.
