Political Cartoons are not your typical cartoon!

    social point

    is it controversial?)
  • Look at all of the details in the cartoon
  • Read all of the words in the cartoon
  • Look for symbols (Ex an American flag stands for
    freedom or the United States, Uncle Sam stands
    for the military, a newspaper or T.V stands for
    the media.)
  • Use your inferencing skills!
