Class for the next two days – we will be focusing on the role of Women in during World War I.

You have seen what propaganda pieces have came out from this time period. Your assignment is to create a piece of propaganda that describes the either the attitude, overall feeling, or sense of need of women during World War I.

You will be graded on content, artistic value, and logic on this assignment.

On the back of this piece of propaganda you must include: (see next slide)

propaganda rubric
Propaganda Rubric

On back of Art Work:

  • Name -1 Point
  • Date - 1 Point
  • Period - 1 Point
  • Class Title - 1 Point
  • Quote - 1 Point
  • Explanation– 5 Points

The explanation of this piece of propaganda should tell the viewer what it is that your piece of propaganda is explaining about not only the art you have created, but the general idea during this time period.

On Front of Art Work:

First off – No Stick Figures. You will receive a “0” – End of Story – Don’t even bring that argument to this class – you will lose. You are creative – you just may not know it yet.

This piece of propaganda should direct the viewer to exactly what it is your are trying to show. Connect relevancy of historical fact to the viewer. I.e. If you are showing that women were needed in the factory, create a picture that shows their importance – the need – the want – and the desire of these women to work hard for their husbands, neighbors, and country men. Create art within the art work that show the feeling of the time.

How will you bring importance to these central figures during the crucial time period in American History? – Use the class readings to help you brainstorm an idea!
