Fine tuning our understanding of the political arena by looking at the funny pages


Who doesn't like cartoons?   I have found over the years that   associating   essential course  content with humorous  graphics, like political cartoons, is a great way to make what we do sticky.    Cartoons also prompt a response.  In this activity, 'TOON In, we combine both - a visceral response with cerebral consideration. 'TOON In is a great way to practice technical writing.  And it is a great way to assess what our students  understand. I often use 'TOON In collaboratively.  Click on  the example and template above for  ready to use PDF files. Don't hesitate to have students draw and write their own  'TOON Ins.  Enjoy.  Five minutes is all you need.       Just in time.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Enjoy.  Mr. Review
