Refer to your notes on propaganda techniques to aid in your analysis and the sheet on elements of style. Here is the wikipedia link on propaganda. If you scroll down, you will find several of the techniques I lectured on.
For the entry, you must type out the paragraph(s) you are explicating and provide the explication below.
Your explication should focus on:
1) What is occurring in the passage? What message is Squealer attempting to oppose?
2) What words, methods, techniques does Squealer use to influence?
3) Why is this important to the story, character, scene, etc.?

You may chose a passage from the following below:
Page 52-53 - The explanation of the milk
