Description

This fun, creative project has students research a topic (from an included list of 30) in early American History and create a sensationalist tabloid newspaper.

Included in the download are a set of lighthearted directions that explain tabloids and what must be included, the list of 30 topics for students to choose from (or be assigned), and a rubric for how the assignment will be scored. Students then use their notes, textbook, or the Internet to research about their topic and create their tabloids.

Some of the topics include:

The Second Great Awakening
The Spoils System
The Trail of Tears
Women's Roles
Transcendentalism
The Erie Canal & National Road
Abolitionism
Unitarianism
.........and many more!

This is an assignment my students have had a lot of fun with and allows them to really show off their creativity! It can be a cooperative learning activity for groups or individually, depending on your class.
