Core classes equal a ton of reading and writing. Here's a chance to ask students to take what they've learned about Nixon and the Watergate Scandal and put it into their own words by creating a comic strip cartoon of the events. It's great for students who like to draw and even those who don't find themselves getting into it.
Included with the assignment are samples of student work, just to give you a visual idea or point your students in the right direction.
I post the best cartoons/comic strips outside my classroom and I often not only have my students but other students who stop to check it out.
