Students will create a front page to a newspaper with the headline and feature article being about a historical U.S. recession or depression. The front page will be time era specific. Students will be instructed to use an inflation calculator to come up with a price for a newspaper and a price for two advertisements. There are 17 different recessions/ depressions to choose from. You may choose to have your students share their newspapers so that your classes can exam similarities and differences between recessions past and present. Project will require 2-3 day of in-class work time.
