In her blog Play on Words, SLP Sherry Y. Artemenko describes helping an eighth-grader with language-learning disabilities to "get" political cartoons. She uses the student's social studies and science curricula to teach inferential thinking, so when the student demonstrated difficulty interpreting political cartoons, Artemenko turned to "Vietnam War: Sacrifices and Outcomes".
The site features six political cartoons followed by questions. "First we examined the cartoon and talked about it in the literal sense," she writes. "The four questions following the cartoon help the student get at the meaning and ultimately give their opinion on the issue."
