Website Spotlight: Posters from World War II
Website URL: http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/powers_of_persuasion/powers_of_persuasion_intro.html
Welcome to one in a series of posts which spotlight quality websites that I use with my U.S. History survey course students at Azusa Pacific University to enrich the regular material in our learning modules.
In this post, I limit myself to those specific aspects of the website which I find fit particularly well within our face-to-face class sessions (each student is required to bring a laptop to class) or as the basis for the students' regularly-assigned written reactions.
I ask the students to work through the posters displayed under each of the following headings:
Man the Guns!
It`s a Woman`s War Too!
United We Win
Use it Up, Wear it Out
Warning! Our Homes Are in Danger Now!
This is Nazi Brutality
He`s Watching You
He Knew the Meaning of Sacrifice
Stamp `Em Out!
