A Matter of Opinion: Hugh Haynie Cartoons for the Classroom.
Kentucky Historical Society, Frankfort.
Editorial cartoons are useful resources for middle school and high school classrooms. They reflect multiple viewpoints about events in history and incorporate visual counterparts to literary elements, such as irony and symbolism. They appeal to visual learners and challenge students to use analytical thinking skills. The cartoons of Hugh Haynie can have special meaning for Kentucky students, since Haynie worked at the "Louisville Courier-Journal" from 1958 to 1995 and created thousands of cartoons on national and state issues. The 10 images in this file are copies of original cartoons in the collection of Judge and Mrs. Hugh Smith Haynie. Along with 57 others from the Haynie collection, they form the centerpiece of a temporary exhibit, "A Matter of Opinion: Hugh Haynie Cartoons," that were on view at the Kentucky Historical Society (Frankfort) from December 14, 2002 to March 30, 2003.
