Editorial Cartoons Resource – Opper Project


The Opper Project website (http://hti.osu.edu/opper/) provides instructors with the information necessary to introduce students to using editorial cartoons as primary sources. Named after Ohioan Frederick Burr Opper, the first great American-born cartoonist, the Opper Project is an on-line collection of historic editorial cartoons. The cartoons, which span over one-hundred years of American history, are organized topically with associated lesson plans.

  1. AP Language and Composition exams now reguloarly feature a visual abouth which students are expected to respond. Many times, as you know, the picture inspires writing, as well as shock and awe. Use them.
