This assignment provides students with the opportunity to further explore the major historical events & culture surrounding the countries of Eastern Asia. I created a newsletter template that allows students to construct their very own newspaper on the countries of Eastern Asia (Japan, China, North & South Korea, Mongolia, and Taiwan). The assignment includes major headlines and events and asks students to write a brief summary of each topic. Specific directions and assignment requirements are included on the template. Point values are also provided to make your grading a breeze. I hope your students love this assignment as much as mine do!
