The assassination of the Archduke: Exploring Perspectives

Use political cartoons for a multiple-perspectives strategy, as pupils learn about the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand. After an anticipatory discussion, they are split into 2 groups. The class reads a primary source account (linked), and then creates political cartoons. Consider having smaller groups work together on the cartoons (rubric included). Also, this might work better if half the groups do the Serbian perspective and half do Austrian, all at once.
