Cartoons for the Classroom: 2008 Presidential Primaries

Take a trip back in time with this political cartoon analysis learning exercise, which has scholars reading background information on the heated 2008 primary campaign to help them approach two political cartoons. Three talking points (or writing points) guide deeper thinking in analysis of symbols and meaning. An extension activity has learners looking for their own political cartoons and analyzing them, using a learning exercise (linked). Consider comparing with the more recent primaries.
