Product Description
Engage your students in a careful analysis of five political cartoons that help shed light on the causes of the War of 1812. Using carefully selected political cartoons spanning the Jefferson and Madison presidencies, these cartoons help students gain insight into attitudes towards the causes. Each cartoon is accompanied by a 1-page historical context summary that provides students background information to assist them in understanding the cartoon as well as to introduce vocabulary related to the topic. The five topics highlighted include: territorial expansion; trade and impressment; French-British conflict; American Indian conflict; and American attitudes/confidence. This product also includes: a lesson plan for teachers; a data retrieval chart to assist students in dissecting the cartoons; and an exit ticket activity along with a rubric. Links for each cartoon are included for teachers wishing to incorporate cartoons into a PowerPoint or other digital format.
