Cartoons for the Classroom: Distracted Drivers

How do your high schoolers feel about texting while driving? Two political cartoons display the issue using humor, and background information gives a more serious coverage of the dangers and legislation involved. Three talking points drive learners to think deeper, as they consider the messages, possible counterarguments, what it will take to keep drivers focused, and whether other distractions should also be banned. The resource is from 2009.
