Join the National Archives and Share My Lesson for a webinar to learn about teaching the constitution with political cartoons.


Clifford K. Berryman was a cartoonist in Washington, DC from the 1890s to 1949. A collection of 2,400 original pen-and-ink drawings by Berryman from the U.S. Senate Collection is housed at the Center for Legislative Archives, a part of the National Archives. During this interactive webinar, discover how the political cartoons of Clifford K. Berryman can engage students with the U.S. Constitution. Explore how the “Big Ideas” of the Constitution are represented in Berryman’s illustrations. Practice techniques for analyzing political cartoons in the classroom and learn about additional resources from the National Archives.
