Cartoons are especially powerful tools and can:

  • Tell a complex story in a few images
  • Provide comment and provoke thought on events and issues in the news
  • Give an example of vocabulary related to current trends and fads
  • Provide easily identifiable characters to form the basis for sketches
  • Show culture in action with the ways that men or women are behaving and are expected to behave
  • Comment on and illustrate a whole range of issues like racism, teenage relationships, sexism, ageism, family relationships.
