Creating Civic Awareness Through Artistic and Literary Forms

Interpret current events using editorial cartoons and other print media. Middle schoolers explore the meanings of literary and artistic terms such as satire, irony, and caricature. They visit internet sites to develop an understanding of symbols and cartooning techniques. They create their own editorial cartoon. Resource is most effective as a collaborative effort among social studies and language arts teachers, but it is not necessary.
