Webinar | Power in Art: Elevate Student Voice with Editorial Cartooning
In this free webinar from the News Literacy Project and KQED, you’ll learn how to use editorial cartoons in news and media literacy curriculums.
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.
You’ll discover how to support students as they analyze and create political cartoons to share their perspective about issues. You’ll also explore topics such as trust and credibility as they relate to opinion journalism.
In this hands-on workshop, you will:
- learn from renowned political cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz.
- explore the News Literacy Project’s Checkology®️ lesson on editorial cartooning.
- hear from educators who have done editorial cartooning assignments with students.
- get started on helping your students create their own cartoons.
- discover how your students can publish their cartoons with KQED’s Political Cartooning Youth Media Challenge Showcase.
This event is part of National News Literacy Week (Jan. 23-27), presented annually by the News Literacy Project and The E.W. Scripps Company.
