This assignment can be used as an alternative assessment to make sure students understand the following topics:
â€¢ Spanish-American War
â€¢ Teddy Roosevelt and the Big Stick Policy
â€¢ Panama Canal
â€¢ World War I
There are GREAT political cartoons relating to these subjects, and you could pretty much teach an entire unit on US imperialism through analyzing cartoons! What a great assessment to have the students design their own!
