Your newspaper can be dated either in the past or in the future. However, the theme of wealth and poverty should be clearly apparent to the reader. You will need at least 2 pages to lay out all of the required articles.
Your newspaper must contain these items:
1 satirical essay
1 opinion piece
3 articles about a local, national, and international news event
Your advertisements must be original. Please do not copy and paste advertisements directly from the internet. Design your own.
You may use the graphic organizer you have completed for this unit to write your satirical essay. Good humor counts!
Your opinion piece must reflect the theme of wealth and poverty. It must also state a clear opinion.
Your articles may reflect a real life event or they may be completely fictional just written like a standard newspaper article which answers the questions: who, what, when, where and why.
You may use the columns feature in MS Word to create newspaper columns. If you are more experienced, you may also try your hand at using MS Publisher which is a popular desktop publishing program. There are tutorials available for using both of these programs on the internet.
For this assignment, you are required to create two advertisements for products which were or will be sold during the time period you choose for your paper. Please do not search the internet and simply copy and paste an advertising image you might find there.
Remember, a good advertisement promises you something: “If you use Swell Shampoo, you’ll look like the latest celebrity.”
Your advertisements should be persuasive as well as informative. Please design them yourself. You may use scanners, photos, photoshop programs, art/drawing programs or whatever combination of technical abilities you may have access to in order to complete your advertisements.
