Cartoons for the Classroom: Prorogue in Canada

Canada's financial woes and a controversially suspended Parliament create fodder for political cartoons in this critical analysis handout. Background information clarifies the context, allowing scholars access to the cartoons, which poke fun at Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Three talking points guide them to deeper analysis of an analogy in the first cartoon, and a pop culture reference in the second. Extension activity is provided, with a linked worksheet.
