Artist Granland's mocking image of the modern American "homeland security" ship panicking about the portrayed "Mayflower" ship approaching New England depicts a bigger message of the irrationality of our immigration security today. Granland cleverly uses the Mayflower ship as a symbol from its historically famous time of really coming to America, where as he uses New England which would seem ironic just because of the word "new." Granland's purpose was to highlight the fact that our security immediately panics when any sign of immigration comes to play even when in the past, immigration is what started America itself.
Strong entry, it's obvious you understand the message the artists is working to portray. Your vocabulary is strong as well. Some of your sentences read a little jumbled though, try to make sure your words and thoughts are clear.

In the artwork of David Granlund, he calls out hypocrisy on the U.S. government and homeland security. He shows what seems to be the Mayflower sailing to New England, which is how modern civilization started in America, being stopped by a homeland security vessel. This is hypocrisy and ironic at the same time because the people in the Mayflower were actually stopped then America as we know it would not exist.
Your interpretation of the political art work is spot on, you did well in analyzing it. However you need to expand on why it's hypocritical, you need to mention current political climate towards immigration to round out your thought.
In the Homeland Security graphic image, Dave Granlund demonizes modern America by depicting modern Americans as hypocritical. Granlund demonstrates hypocracracy by the text bubble "Undocumented aliens off the coast of New England" being declared towards an old ship resembling the Mayflower. In addition, the Homeland Security ship is seemingly outnumbered, but because of modern technology, they are most likely the stronger of the two. The choppy waters also communicates that the Americans are not very happy about the oncoming of the foreigners. The artist conveys to the audience that we need to be better about accepting foreigners into the country because we were once aliens ourselves.
You formed a strong interpretation of the graphic, however it gets a little muddied with some of the excess sentences you have. I would suggest reading through and condensing your response just a little so you can strengthen your main ideas because they are a little vague as is.
Dave Granlund's image depicts the hypocrisy of the "homeland," America. The irony is construed by putting the "undocumented aliens" in the same shoes as the selfish American inhabitants when they first discovered the beautiful land in the same fossil of a boat. This portrayal of immigration gets citizens of the greedy country that is America angry because of the way the security is treating the desperate foreigners.
It's clear you understand what the graphic is portraying, but reading your response makes it a little hard to understand your main ideas. I'm glad to see that you actively worked to amp up your vocab, but the execution missed the mark just a little bit. It seemed like your were more focused on making sure the vocab was there instead of how they flow with the rest of the sentence and the response.
In Granlund's graphic image he portrays the pilgrims on the mayflower as "undocumented aliens." The words "Homeland Security" shows this image taking place in America. This image shows the problem of immigration in the United States. Citizens of the United States default to the term "aliens" when immigrants come to the country without even blinking an eye. Granlund obviously thinks there is a problem of how people think of immigrants in the United States, and he intended to point out the problem of immigration to the people of the United States of America.
Strong interpretation, but make sure you really expand on your ideas. The response is just a little vague
got your point across at the very end
In Dave Grandlund's graphic image, he portrays the hypocrisy the United States has begun to live in. Grandlund illustrates two ships, a current homeland security ship and a flagship that represents the Mayflower. Grandlund includes the Mayflower to represent Colonial people, immigrating to America and gain easy access. On the other side, a Homeland Security ship is seen defending America's waters, not allowing any immigrants to enter. By doing this, Grandlund sways viewers mindset our current issues of immigration by making the US seem to be very hypocritical.
This interpretation and response was spot on. However, some of your ideas were a little vague, make sure you expand on them.
bit of summary
love the vocab
understood the image and intention
Dave Grandlund's graphic image highlights the hypocrisy that is demonstrated by U.S. Homeland Security targeting immigrants trying to enter America. Grandlund alludes to the irony by including New England in the caption, as that is the location where the 13 colonies were established during the Revolutionary War. "Undocumented aliens" and the difference in the style of ships further proves Grandlund's point that America is being hypocritical by trying to establish closed borders when America was created by immigrants. This image is intended to relate to immigrants who have came to the U.S. and to not overlook the hypocrisy being demonstrated by the U.S.
Very strong interpretation and response, you did a great job in fully explaining your thoughts. I would challenge you however to try and change up your wording, you used "hypocrisy" more than necessary in the response. Branch out and play around with your words more.
upgrade some word choice but over all good
In Dave Granlund's artistic rendering he is conveying the message that Americans in today's society are extremely hypocritical. In his rendering the Department of Homeland security is "protecting" the United States of America from the settlers who created America. The inclusion of the boat that belongs to homeland security and the "aliens" boat shows the audience just how hypocritical Americans are when they try to limit or even abolish immigration into the United States since the country itself was founded by the immigrants coming from Britain to seek a better life for their family which is all that the Immigrants coming into the country now are trying to do.
You did well in conveying your own opinion on the subject subtly throughout your response. I would challenge you to work on picking a variety of words and branch out your vocab. Also I would encourage you to stay away from making generalizations like your last sentence, its risky to assume others' intentions.
last sentence assuming-> don't
Dave Granlund's graphic image emphasizes the ignorance of the "Homeland Security" while alluding to the event of the nonnative ship arriving to "New England." The men on the homeland security boat enhances the dilemma of acceptance in today's American culture. The artist conveys his idea of the US being crude to the "foreign" ship while at one time, the county was in the same position. Granlund appeals to the emotion of the audience by being able to relate the so-called "aliens" to any type of external force. The purpose of his image is to highlight the considerable amount of incredibly naive natives of the United States.
Very strong interpretation of the graphic. I'm also glad to see you made an effort to amp up your vocab, however you need to make sure you are using them all correctly (crude was not use entirely correctly).
focus more on ideas than vocab
use words correctly!
Granlund's illustration conveys the irony of Americans calling anyone who is entering America an "illegal alien" when hundreds of years back it was them who were the illegal immigrants. Homeland Security, the people who guard America now, are shouting out that the travelers on the Mayflower, which is how people from England came to America, are the ones invading someone else's homeland. Granlund's purpose is to make his audience realize that while the majority of people who are now so protective of their country actually seized this land from the Native Americans. He exhibits to the audience how the tables have turned in hopes to make people be more accepting of immigrants.
Your interpretation and response were done well, and your vocab use was strong. Make sure you thoroughly explain your ideas.
love the vocab!
bit more evidence needed
Grandlund's illustration showcases the hypocrisy that the United States has towards other countries. The hypocrisy is shown in the illustration by comparing how the United States rejects unidentified aliens despite the fact that we came to America as unidentified aliens. The authors purpose is to shed light on the immigration issues and allow the readers to comprehend why its morally wrong for the United States to deny any type of immigration into our country. The authors intended audience is the citizens of America because we are the only ones who can make a difference for the immigrants heading our way.
Great response and interpretation. Your ideas connect and do well to explain the reason for this graphic. I would encourage you to vary your word choice and branch out your vocab.
overuse of some vocab
upgrade sentence structure
In a graphic image depicting two large ships in an ocean, Granlund portrays his argument through the modern political focus of United States immigrants. Granlund reflects on a period of time where our ancestors sailed to American to find independence on the old wooden ship just like refuges from other countries are currently striving for. The hypocritical state of country is extremely present in this graphic image because we were once in the shoes of the refuges, so we, as citizens, should sympathize for them yet we aren't. Granlund evokes the audience to be pro-immigration by depicting this simple and rational thinking.
It is clear you understand what the author is working to portray through this image, however I would encourage you to reread your response and condense your sentences, there were a few that were fluff-er sentences that you didn't really need.

great vocab and analysis
Dave Granlund's illustration captures the irony of the US rejecting immigrants coming to America from other countries. The illustrator highlights the hostility the US conveys towards people from other countries. Dave's created this image to reveal the hostility the US has towards other people and how we were in the same situation five-hundred years ago. He directed his audience to the citizen of the US to open our eyes to the apparent unfairness and bias we have towards other countries and that our patriotism can cause harm to other people around the world.
Great response and interpretation. Make sure you reread your response though, I found a few grammar errors.
vocab is great
The graphic artist Dave Granlund emphasizes the idea that Americans came and empowered a land years ago and is now keeping people from coming and settling in his graphic image. Granlund uses irony in his image by making one boat a newly, more up to date homeland security boat and the other an older and less modern boat. He does this to show that America used to be like that brown boat looking for a place to settle and start anew. Now that Americans have done that, they're keeping others out and sending them back to where they came from no matter that condition that the new comers land was in. It correlates to today's times with the President and his out look on immigrants in the United States. Even though we did the same thing back then to the tribes that once lived there before.
Strong response and interpretation. I liked that you subtly interjected your opinion without stating it outright. There were a few grammatical errors and misuse of some words, make sure to reread your response.
ideas are there, work on conveying ideas thoroughly
The image illustrated by artist Dave Granlund, acknowledges the fact that citizens once came to america as "undocumented aliens" and now, many citizens see them as a threat and a bad thing, even an insult. "Undocumented aliens" were the people who built america, many people now ignore that fact. He specifically shows the difference in the styles of the ships to help viewers understand his purpose, and to help viewers relate to the image.
Great interpretation of the graphic. There were a few grammatical errors though and I would encourage you to expand on your thoughts more.
evidence is there but need direct ideas
The artist Granlund presents a very ironic situation of America being a hypocrite towards immigrates. As "homeland security" ship points toward an ancient almost prehistoric boat the captain of the American boat yells, "undocumented aliens off the coast of New England." This allows the audience to get the ironic feel of the picture as Americans once immigrated from New England to America and are no longer permitting undocumented aliens from entering. Granlunds purpose for this image is to shine a light on Americas hypocrisy towards immigrants while most American citizens themselves come from immigrating.
This was more of a summary than an interpretation, make sure you answer the prompt completely. Otherwise, good work.
This image created by Dave Grandkund, emphasizes the irony of Americans view of despising "aliens" from coming to America, with a flashback in time. The old, Mayflower like ship, is showing that American's infact were the ones doing the invading of America back in the 1500's and 1600's, but with the use of the word "aliens" a common term used today, the author shows the shift in roles that American's now play. From the ones being the disruption, American's are now controversial in resenting the entrance of aliens into the country they invaded themselves.
This was a good response and interpretation, but make sure you elaborate on your ideas and watch out for grammar errors.
-lots of summary in most of these
- incorporate sentences WITH analysis embedded
-direct comments toward the government, policy, military, or Coast Guard
The artists Dave Granlund created a graphic image showing the Unites States denying access to undocumented aliens off of the coast of new England. The image conveys an ironic message because the United States was a country founded by immigrants and now is denying access to the people that are in the same situation as are founders of the United States were in when they made the journey to the Americas. The image's caption setting the location in New England is significant because it makes a historical reference to the country the United States first people came from and fought against to gain independence. The contrast between the two vessels identifies helps compare the immigrants to the first people in the United States by the design of the ship. The image uses the design of the ships , the captions , and the viewers prior knowledge to portray its message.
Strong interpretation of the image. I found a few grammatical errors, make sure you are leaving time to reread your response.
summary until last two sentences
ideas were there but needs to be spread throughout
In the intentionally controversial graphic image created by David Granlund, he effectively emphasizes both the irony and hypocrisy expressed by many U.S. citizens, government officials, and security policies today with allusions regarding the undeniable and even celebrated fact that America's "first" settlers migrated from England, but instead he depicts a modern ship labelled "Homeland Security" spewing a quote to the Mayflower that is similar to what immigrants trying to enter the United States in the 21st Century are recognizably told. Highlighting this malicious behavior and directing it towards a group that aren't frequently condemned for immigration creates an hard-hitting and difficult to ignore cross between eras that is easily understood by many people of different backgrounds and points of view.
Great response as always, your interpretation was strong. You had a few grammatical errors, that first sentences is a very long run-on, make sure to revise your work and try and separate that sentence up.
