Cartoons for the Classroom: Obama's Baggage

Add a little humor to the current happenings of Washington D.C. using this political cartoon analysis handout. A quote serves as context to help learners access the featured cartoon, which depicts President Obama climbing a "reality mountain" with "expectations baggage" weighing him down. Three talking points (could be writing points) guide deeper thinking as scholars consider the point the cartoonist makes, how he uses analogy, and their own take on the issue. Note: the resource is from 2010.
