Cartoons for the Classroom: Oh, What's the Next Crisis?

As scholars examine a simple political cartoon, they consider some of the crises of 2009: oil, foreign wars, energy, global warming, Swine Flu, etc. A list is provided for background information, and 3 talking points (or writing points) guide deeper thinking. Learners analyze the evidence and validity of citizen response as the cartoonist depicts it: panic. They consider whether or not the public overreacted to the Swine Flu pandemic, and which of the listed crises effected them the most.
