The assignment

The Assignment

  • Research a cause of the American Revolution by locating and reading a source.

  • Create a bibliography using www.bibme.org of the source you utilized.

  • Create a full page political cartoon that combines creativity, color, and historically accurate facts about one of the causes of the American Revolution. (Reminder: Please do not utilize the Boston Tea Party as your cause.) This cartoon must not be copied from a political cartoon you found in a book or online—it must be an original work composed by you.


Points to consider

Points to Consider:

  • Did you design your cartoon in a way to make the viewer think? 

  • What is your cartoon’s message?

  • The goal is to combine what you know about the events leading to the American Revolution with your creativity.

  • You must incorporate historically accurate information into your cartoon.

  • Add color to bring your political cartoon alive.
