All Classes - Political Cartoon Analysis due tomorrow, 4/28
Political Cartoon Writing Assignment - use the political cartoons to write 2 mini-essays. Due Monday, 5/2
Here are your instructions:

What topics related to the criminal justice system are depicted by the political cartoons?
Choose ONE of these topics on which to focus your writing assignment
This is an exercise in writing persuasively and using evidence from legitimate news sources, while also acknowledging bias
Part of critical thinking is not only being able to consider all sides of argument, and but why the strong points and weak points of all arguments.
For your topic:
Identify the two sides of the issue
Write two mini-essays (roughly two paragraphs each) in which you will argue each side of the issue.
You should introduce the topic and introduce the position (one paragraph). You should then back this up with examples. Lastly, you should acknowledge the other side to the argument, but point out why one could disagree (one paragraph)
You should do this for *each side* of the argument - not just the one you agree with!
You may use more than two paragraphs if necessary
You may use the following websites as “back up” materials:

All Classes - Start your suffrage political cartoon - due Friday
Pick one group and advocate for their suffrage. Ex: Votes for women, votes for African Americans, votes for 18 year olds, etc (there are plenty of others!) You may also create a cartoon to advocate for ending the poll tax, or the literacy tests.
If you opt to do a traditional political cartoon, the cartoon must be on white paper and done only in black ink
This is not an art class, I am not grading you on artistic ability but I am grading you on neatness!!
Can't draw people? That's okay! Draw a ballot box, draw a bar of soap (that one will make sense when you are researching the types of tests given at the polls), draw and old fashion scroll with a slogan on it.

**1st Block also gave me an idea, you may also create a meme. But it must be done in the style of current memes on social media, a striking image that is easily recognizable with a very short slogan.

Political Cartoons can be "Sweet or Salty," so make sure you decide on a Point of View and stick with it. Your cartoon might need a slogan, or some word bubbles and that's fine. But this is a political cartoon, not a comic strip and not a novel so their should not be an excessive amount of writing or dialogue
