**Updated 2/17/18 with a NEW detailed powerpoint and NEW note-taking organizer that explains the Monroe Doctrine in simple terms AND includes student examples to inspire your class! An instruction page has been added as well.
This is a fun and creative assignment! After gaining an understanding of the James Monroe's ideology, students will create a political cartoon that describes the Monroe Doctrine.
In my classroom, students use the organizer to create a rough draft, which then is beautifully perfected on a larger sheet of white construction paper. It is super fun to see the ideas that kids come up with!
There is a Monroe Doctrine primary source analysis handout in my store that is great to use before the cartooning!
If you have a moment, I would love to hear from you. Thanks for stopping by!
