Cartoons for the Classroom: Gridlock in 2010 Elections

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Investigate symbolism within a political cartoon in this critical analysis handout, which outlines issues of the 2010 election process. Background information (on the risk of gridlock in legislation and the challenges of either party winning) helps scholars gain access to the cartoon, which utilizes symbolism and imagery. Three talking points guide learners into deeper analysis of symbolism and the stand the cartoonist is making. Link to cartoonist's archive doesn't work.
