Cartoons for the Classroom: Vanishing Newspapers

What is happening to our newspapers? In the context of the current trends of media and the ever-declining print news industry, this handout includes two political cartoons for pupils to analyze, both created by artists working for newspapers "likely to shut down within 90 days." Background information helps learners "read between the lines", and 3 talking points (could be writing points) prompt analysis and further thinking about implications of government-sponsored media.
