Most of you turned in your essay yesterday. If you didn't, spend today's class period finishing it (ask for help where you need it). 

If you did, you'll be working today on an assignment involving cartoons....editorial cartoons.

First, take a few minutes finding out how to read an editorial cartoon by watching a short Slideshow or reviewing some Key points in list form.

Next, open your Assignment page, which is a read-only document. Use the File > Make a copy... option from the document to make your own copy that you can type in. You'll use the assignment page along with what you know about reading editorial cartoons to analyze ONE of the following cartoons:
  1. Trick or treat 1
  2. Trick or treat 2
  3. Dad's costume
  4. Which Mitt?
  5. Boo!
  6. Vice Presidents
  7. Haunted House
Be sure to copy/paste the URL of the cartoon you work with on your assignment page so it's easy to compare your answers to the cartoon later on. 

NO HOMEWORK....UNLESS you're still working on your essay.
