Vicious Vocabulary IV

As part of our Propaganda unit we will need to explore some new words. Please do a little research on these words to become familiar with them. 

Tasks you can do with these words: (try one or more)
- Find antonyms and/or synonyms
- Define in your own words
- Put into a mini story (50 or so words)
- Use an image that best captures the word

Words to explore:
  • championing
  • disseminate
  • censorship

Good luck!

  1. "Look at this selfish fool championing these poor farmers money!" exclaimed Jason.
    "We must disseminate this news so we can get help!" replied Dante.
    "Don't be psychotic Dante!" Jason murmured angrily. "If you do that the mayor will surely give you censorship. We must think of a smarter way to help the farmers."

  5. Censorship should be applied to all of Julius Malema's speeches. They are more of lectures of
    how he wishes to disseminate that he thinks he should be in control of South Africa. The championing of
    his fellow comrades is still not quite enough to overcome the whole country's opinion.
