Task 1: News Article
You are a newspaper reporter working for a large news organization during World War I. Your publisher wants you to focus on the important events of World War I, with in-depth examinations of specific people and events that are pivotal in the outcome of the war. You and your fellow reporters will work both individually and as a group to research the topics provided.
Do some research to prepare an article about your topic. Read in your text, look up information in other books, and search the Internet. Take notes.
Your job is to write a thought-provoking article for the special Issue. Explore your assigned topic thoroughly, with enough background information so someone unfamiliar with your topic will understand it. Examine the varying viewpoints of those who were the leaders, and those who were led. Who were the significant people involved and what were the significant events?
Each member of the group must contribute at least one news story. In addition, you should include a graphic (photo, illustration, map, chart, graph, etc.).
The page must be produced with Microsoft Publisher and include a title and list of contributing reporters. Identify the author of each piece of writing. Final pages will be shared with others.
Your article should be at least 300-500 words. Anyone who reads your article should clearly understand the successes and problems of your country today, and any issues leftover from World War I that still exist. Be sure and note any significant events or people that have emerged since World War I affecting your country.
Your notes from the previous tasks should be helpful, but you may need to do further research on the country.
