EL PASO – UTEP’s Center for History Teaching & Learning has prepared a free history lesson plan for middle and high-school students based on the JibJab Website’s satirical politcal cartoons.

The lesson plan uses a video, “He’s Barack Obama,” to engage students in historical thinking through primary source analysis and interpretation. The lesson is keyed to national and state history standards, but may also be used in economic, government, or language arts curricula, Keith Erekson, director of the center, said in a statement.

The Center for History Teaching & Learning promotes scholarly teaching among department faculty to support teacher education among students, and to provide professional development opportunities for current teachers.
