Analysing Cartoons Written by GrizzlyBear Tuesday, 31 May 2011 05:51 - Last Updated Tuesday, 31 May 2011 05:59

Cartoons are an image, and the method of analysing them is generally the same as it is for other images - with a few variations. This is a skill of value in English and History, and is one that should be developed fairly young. However, I've had many, many students at Year 10 level who can't do it. The documents I present here are directed towards helping students develop this skill. I've done some short form materials, and some longer form. In the longer form, I've done one with an Australian cartoon, one with a British cartoon, and one with a cartoon from the US. I may develop others as time goes on.

This first document contains a short list of the five main elements of a cartoon.

 

 

This second document contains the questions that need to be asked of a cartoon (and if you hear any answers I suggest you seek help!!!). Sorry, teacher joke. I couldn't help it,

now that I'm no longer in the classroom.

 

 

This document is a general rubric for cartoon analysis. I was always so pushed for time that I never had time to do these properly. So, here's one to save you some time. I'll do more as time goes by.
