This is an assignment that I used at the beginning of the year for my journalism class. My class submits articles to the local newspaper. However, before we started that adventure, I wanted to make sure the students had a basic understanding of journalism and investigative writing concepts. This assignment is also really fun because it requires students to create a newspaper for a fictional community of their choosing! The requirements are listed in the PDF, as well as a Google Docs newspaper format that I found and used.
