Conflicts & Cartoons: Home

Assignment Overview

For your third quarter culminating project, you will be making your own political cartoons about any of the conflicts we have discussed in class this semester. This includes the Spanish-American War, World War I, World War II, Vietnam, and the War on Terror (starting after 9/11). 


1. Research opposing viewpoints on your chosen conflict utilizing the library database provided. 

2. Compile your research into a one-page, MLA-cited paper comparing differing American perspectives on the conflict. 

3. Create a political cartoon demonstrating your own personal opinion about the conflict. On the back of your political cartoon you will write a one-paragraph explanation of how you formed your personal opinion.
