Not So Funny Papers

This Not So Funny Papers lesson plan also includes:

Conduct an in-depth analysis of political cartoons from the early twentieth century with your middle schoolers. Small groups complete a gallery walk and fill out a detailed graphic organizer in order to analyze four of the eight provided cartoons. After a whole class discussion, introduce and review the essay assignment included in the lesson. The graphic organizer is really nice and includes three levels of depth for learners to explore.
