|I have now turned this set of ideas into a series of lessons, which you can find at http://www.onedamnthing.org.uk/?page_id=922.|
Inspired by the instructions from the Ministry of Information to the BBC http://www.bbc.co.uk/archive/hawhaw/8928.shtml?page=2. Students will write and record an authentic broadcast about one important event of the war.
There are excellent examples of BBC recordings here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/historyofthebbc/resources/bbcatwar/reporting2.shtml
and one here for Dunkirk: http://www.bbc.co.uk/archive/dunkirk/14311.shtml
And a great dramatisation of the Battle of Britain!http://www.bbc.co.uk/archive/battleofbritain/11425.shtml
http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/theartofwar/prop/ is a great page of examples of printed propaganda, which pupils will probably have done most work on.
