Folder contains lesson plans developed by Sturgeon Bay High School teacher Barry Mellen in 2008-09.
- Barry Mellen -- Lesson Plans Descriptions
- Lesson plans focus on the political cartoons of Herbert Block, one of the most well-known and prolific political cartoonists of the 20th Century. Herbert Block -- or “Herblock” -- chronicled U.S. domestic and foreign policy for over 50 years. His cartoons were not only of high quality, but also timely artifacts of American history. Was Herblock merely reflecting the prevailing feeling in the United States with his cartoons or was he leading the discussion and allowing everyone else to follow along?
