This Self-Learning Module (SLM) is prepared so that you, our dear learners, can continue your studies and learn while at home. Activities, questions, directions, exercises, and discussions are carefully stated for you to understand each lesson.
Each SLM is composed of different parts. Each part shall guide you step-by-step as you discover and understand the lesson prepared for you.
Pre-tests are provided to measure your prior knowledge on lessons in each SLM. This will tell you if you need to proceed on completing this module or if you need to ask your facilitator or your teacher’s assistance for better understanding of the lesson. At the end of each module, you need to answer the post-test to self-check your learning. Answer keys are provided for each activity and test. We trust that you will be honest in using these.
Please use this module with care. Do not put unnecessary marks on any part of this SLM. Use a separate sheet of paper in answering the exercises and tests. And read the instructions carefully before performing each task.
If you have any questions in using this SLM or any difficulty in answering the tasks in this module, do not hesitate to consult your teacher or facilitator.
Have you ever read on the internet or heard over the radio some news about famous people being bashed, attacked, or criticized without valid reasons?
Have you ever bought something you saw on TV or in an advertisement which you found to be not useful at all?
Why do you think these things happen? What makes these things happen?
In this module, you will learn about propaganda techniques which, just like the stereotypes, influence what you think about other people and things.
At the end of this module, you should be able to:
- define propaganda and the different propaganda techniques;
- distinguish types of propaganda techniques; and
- develop tolerance or show respect for others’ point of view.
