About this Grantee

To help students understand the critical role that propaganda played in the maintenance of totalitarian regimes such as Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, Mr. McDowell and Ms. Johnstowne simulate a ministry of propaganda. Students learn media literacy by creating storyboards that glorify a fictional state for film and print campaigns.
