Cartoons invite laughter – a huge, contributing  ingredient in learning. Cartoons invite creativity – a huge, contributing  ingredient in learning. Cartoons engage the senses, the emotions -  huge, contributing  ingredient in learning.


GED students can use cartoons to illustrate social, economic and political messages. ABE, Family Literacy, and ESL students can use cartoons to express language and solve problems.
