- This short video will help you learn more about propaganda. http://www.cbc.ca/video/#/Shows/Doc_Zone/Love_Hate_and_Propaganda/1411976690/ID=1423812933

If you are writing a personal narrative, here is some advice:
- Write in the first person. This means you need to write the narrative as if you are this character (“I saw…I wondered…”)
- Develop your character before you write. How old is he? Where does he live? What is his view of the war?
- Think about where/when/how this character will encounter propaganda. This will shape your narrative considerably. Here is a great clip from a film where a German teacher tries to convince his students to go to war: http://www.americanrhetoric.com/MovieSpeeches/moviespeechallquietonthewesternfront1.html
- If you want to see how the student feels after going to war (and seeing that the propaganda was a lie), watch this: http://www.americanrhetoric.com/MovieSpeeches/moviespeechallquietonthewesternfront2.html
