Cartoons for the Classroom: Social Commentary

Expose your class to the genre of political cartoons less concerned with serious political issues. This political cartoon analysis handout features social commentary on the many entertainments of youth, ironically paired with their tendency to get bored. Three talking points (or writing points) get pupils analyzing this style of cartoon in the context of its irony and comedic genre. Consider extending the activity by having them create their own everyday life cartoon.
