Your assessment of this unit will require you to create your own newspaper. As you know, the Civil War, the Industrial Revolution, and Westward Expansion changed America from 1850-1900. After learning about the history and literature of the Realism period, you are to design a newspaper that includes content from several parts of the country during the years 1850 – 1900.
Your newspaper will consist of the following:
Original design and front cover – think of a name for your newspaper. It should be both creative and informative.
Letter to the Editor describing your opinion of some issue mentioned in the unit: abolitionism, women’s rights, immigration, child labor, etc. Explain the problem in detail and propose a workable solution.
Letter to the Editor describing your opinion about one the short stories you have read in this unit – make sure you use examples from the story to support your opinion.
Feature article about one of the authors in this unit. Be sure to use factual, interesting information; give names of the stories he/she has written. The article should be approximately 3 paragraphs in length. Make sure to include a picture of the author as well.
Create an original political advertisement or political cartoon.
Choose a historical event from this time period and write about it using realistic details that make your reader feel as if you were really there. Include a picture, map, or graph.
Choose an important historical figure from this time period and write a stream of consciousness narrative from that person’s point of view on the most important day of his/her life.
Create an advertisement for a product or service of this time period. Include a visual.
Copy the text of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address and re-write it in a dialect of your choice. Make sure to change spellings, vocabulary, wording, and phrases to make your dialect look and sound as realistic as possible.
Write an obituary that demonstrates a Naturalistic philosophy. Explain how the person died without being inappropriate or too graphic, and make sure it involves being overpowered by the forces of nature or an inevitable fate based on the person’s birth.
Lastly, you will need to include a works cited page in MLA format with all of your resources listed, including the sources of all images you used.
You may use any program to create your project, but you need to make sure you save your newspaper in pdf format. For recommended tools or if you need help saving as PDF, ask your teacher.
Here are some things to help you:
Do NOT use Wikipedia as a source. Your list of sources should also include the original source, not Google, which is just a search engine designed to help you find sources.
Your newspaper should reflect your creativity and originality.
