With your class, look at today's editorial cartoon in the Boston Herald Smart Edition. Then discuss with your students.
  • What is the artist trying to express in this cartoon?
  • How does the artist portray the subject?
  • Do you think the cartoon was effective in expressing the artist's opinion?
  • How would the same idea differ if it was expressed in words, rather than in pictures?
