I really liked this website... Usually when I'm told to research a topic I'm not too thrilled about it but I was pleasantly surprised when I came to this website and I actually wanted to start reading and researching. It was quite interesting and I saw a lot of information and learned a lot. It explained and defined propaganda very well, and it was defined as biased information designed to shape public opinion and behavior. Propaganda has much more importance today than in earlier centuries. With the growth of media literacy and liberal demands, politicians and governments realized how important it is to win over public opinion and molding it through different forms of propaganda and mass persuasion. Although I already knew what propaganda was, this website is very effective in portraying what propaganda is and how it affects and applies to societies all over the world, and also how it affected World War ll. http://www.teacheroz.com/WWIIpropaganda.htm <--- This website has tons of different examples of war propaganda and it's really cool because if you click on one it explains what it was, how it was started, and how it effected a certain war.
