Presentation Transcript

  1. Political Cartoons Sometimes, the best way to make a point or get someone’s attention is to use “humor.” Political cartoonists make HEAVY DUTY political statements in ways we don’t expect…

  2. What’s the point the cartoonist is trying to make?

  3. The Cartoonists’ Tools

  4. Exaggeration - Cartoonists will overdo physical characteristics of people or things in order to get attention or make a point.

  5. Labeling - Objects or people are often labeled by cartoonists to make it clear exactly what they stand for.

  6. Symbolism - Objects are used to stand for larger concepts or ideas.

  7. Analogy - Cartoonists will 'draw' a comparison between two unlike things.

  8. Irony - The difference between the way things are and the way things should be.
