Every teacher strives to find new ways to pique and keep students’ interest throughout the school year.
We believe that comic books can be one of many resources in this quest.
In this case we are highlighting a few Esquire Comics from the Cold War era.
The imagery can be quite graphic at times, so prescreening is always essential before passing something out.
We have included an assignment that is classroom ready to be used during a Cold War unit.
