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:
  • advocacy
  • pathos

Good luck!
