Cartoons for the Classroom: Spinning off of Eyjafjallajökull

The name itself may have your scholars' heads spinning: Eyjafjallajökull. Its recent volcanic eruption spurred many political cartoons on unrelated topics- using an analysis handout scholars examine the use of metaphor in 2 cartoons based on this event. Background information gives them access to the topic, and 3 talking points guide deeper thinking. Learners consider the use of metaphor and sarcasm, and write a metaphor of their own based on a volcano and a current issue.
