Historical Newspaper Your task: Create a newspaper about the unit consisting of articles, comic strips, advertisements and editorials. Instructions:
I. Give your paper a title that fits with the unit. “History Newspaper” is not enough!
II. Your paper should include 8 or more items including:
3 or more news articles about events from the unit. These should be written from the point of view of a reporter who witnessed these events and was “in the middle of the action.” These articles should be a minimum of two paragraphs and should include made-up quotes from people involved in the event.
1 obituary of a famous person from this period. An obituary is a short retelling of the major events in that person’s life.
1 picture that goes along with one of your front page stories.
3 or more “other” items such as:
Comic strips about either a person or event from the time period. Each strip should be at least 3 panels in length.
