Secondary Social Studies

Post by ElishaW/Kagan » Tue Jul 19, 2011 7:10 am

At the Summer Academy many of the participants asked for resources for political cartoons. Here are some teacher and student friendly political cartoon resources...

Both Daryl Cagle and Bob Lang are excellent political cartoonists. has an interesting cartoon blog. Great for discussion and interpretations. is another appropriate online resource.

I hope you enjoy these ideas!

Do you have any suggestions for particular structures to use with political cartoons?

Many structures will work with political cartoons. Some that come to mind first include: RallyRobin, Timed Pair Share, RoundRobin (select a variation), Talking Chips, & Fan-N-Pick. You might refer to your structure functions page on 6.24 of the textbook which will guide you for selecting the correct structure based on your function.
All the best!
