Taking their side

In this three-part critical challenge, students rate the effectiveness of political cartoons portraying featured topics (business-labour relations, cultural minorities and prohibition). Students then interpret the cartoonist's views on the beliefs, fears and values of the people portrayed in the cartoons. Finally, students create an effective cartoon representing one or more group's perspectives on a new topic.
