Support students to build news literacy skills and share their voice with the News Literacy Project and KQED. Join us to learn how students can analyze and create political cartoons to share their perspective about issues. Editorial cartooning, a powerful form of opinion journalism, has a long history in the United States, and draws on a rich visual vocabulary to communicate complex ideas in an accessible way. In this hands-on workshop, learn from renowned political cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz and educators who have done editorial cartooning with students. You’ll also explore the News Literacy Project’s Checkology lesson on editorial cartooning and get started creating your own cartoon. Then, find out how your students can publish their cartoons with KQED’s Political Cartooning Youth Media Challenge.
