Editorial cartoons



Editorial cartoonists use a variety of tools to make a point. They use symbols, caricatures, stereotypes and analogies. Look in your local newspaper for editorial cartoons about the constitutional amendments or the candidates. With your classmates, decide which of these tools are being used in the various cartoons. What prior knowledge did you need in order to understand the cartoon? Share your ideas and thoughts here on the NIE Blogging Zone.
