1800-1860 US Assignment

  1. 1. Magazine Assignment We will be creating newsmagazines about the early national period (1800-1860). You will each be assigned to a group and each group will be assigned a theme for their magazine and news show. Each group will then be expected to publish the magazine and share them with the class. The Assignment The first job of your group is to choose an editor. Choose someone who has shown themselves to be responsible and who has a good attendance record. Also choose an assistant editor to help the editor. Each person in the group should then choose one of the topics listed for your magazine (If your group has less than 5 members, choose who will do more than 1). You will be responsible for writing a 300 word article on that topic AND you are expected to produce one of the following as they might have appeared in a magazine of the time: • An advertisement • A crossword puzzle • A “Dear Abby” column • A cartoon • A recipe • The cover • Anything else you can think of that may be in a magazine? Get approval first! It will be the job of the editor to make sure each person has an assignment and that each person hands their portion of the magazine to them in time for the editor to put all the materials together and create a table of contents. The table of contents should include every item in your magazine (including ads, puzzles, etc) and the name of the person who created each item. Magazines will be graded for content, grammar, spelling and creativity. There will be an overall grade AND an individual grade for each article. Presentation of Magazine to class You will have a copy of your magazine to share with the class (Mrs. Babic will take care of copies). As a group, you will present a brief overview of your magazine (think: your table of contents!), explaining what bits of information can be found in your magazine. Make sure you are clear about where everything is located…we’ll be using each other’s magazines for our open note test on the early national period! Computer Lab Schedule (write down so you know your deadlines!)
