Unit: Cold War
Assignment: Causes of the Cold War Activity: Image Analysis: Illustrating the Cold War
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. Take a look at the political cartoons below and on the following pages, and think about which ones match the topics below. Once you have determined that, then think about how you would sequence them to tell the story of the Causes and Events of the Cold War. Note: SOME have more than one political cartoon to illustrate it; others have only one.
Step three is to cut them out, glue them into a “booklet format” (one per page) For each of these events: 1) write a title that corresponds to the event that you believe the cartoon is representing,2) write an explanation of the event, and 3) write your explanation of how the cartoonist is illustrating it (i.e. what is the message/opinion of the cartoonist, and how di you know?-what does the cartoonist do to show opinion?)
