Teaching Inference with Editorial Cartoons in History Class

Today we are studying inference - our building's focus for the month - and we are doing an activity that has a "History CSI" theme - Caution Students Infering. We are using editorial cartoons and have yellow caution tape around the room as we try to discover the meaning behind various editorial cartoons and then create our own with a Manifest Destiny theme - our current unit. More on this activity later.

    Hey, I remember that day. I loved doing those editorial cartoons. . . They were pretty neat. I saw that a lot of them (including mine) were hanging on the walls in the eighth grade hallway.
