In this project, students are to create either a newspaper or newscast on topics from the Cold War. There is an in-depth rubric for each part of the assignment as well as the assignment as a whole. Students have loved this project and it works well for both Middle and High School.
Assignment for students:
In groups of 5 you will be responsible for completing a newspaper (4 pages with a copy for each student) or a T.V. Newscast (aprox. 15min. on Video or as a Presentation) from an assigned time period during the Cold War. Basic standards for the projects are below and specific rubrics will be available next week. Time period choices are also listed below and will be chosen in the order of what number a group picks randomly.
