IB DP Language A Language and Literature – sample text analysis – cartoon

Before you read the “spoiler” bullet points below take a careful look at the text. Imagine it is a text you are using for one of your DP Language A Language and Literature assessments: the individual oral, the HL essay, or Paper 1 and analyze it accordingly. (This text would not be appropriate for Paper 2).

Some elements of the text to consider:

  • The fact that this is a cartoon about cartoons – a neutral / informative text about editorial cartoons which are based on opinion
  • The use of panels and the blue background in the panels
  • The autobiographical elements of this cartoon
  • The basic amount of information about editorial cartoons that is presented
  • The style and content of the visuals
  • The simplicity of the language
