This is a great cross-curricular activity with an English class! This can also be easily adapted for any History or English class.
Students will be creating a newspaper that would have come out during the Gilded Age. It will need to include articles, pictures and advertisements. Computers will be provided to help with additional research; however, the newspaper must be created by hand (this means not fully done on a computer). Students will need to include items that you would see in a regular newspaper as well as adding their own creative touches.
