Student engagement on research papers can be...challenging. In this twist on the traditional assignment, students will work in pairs to research a decade in the 1900s that they find interesting. They will work together to find sources, yet write their own brief news articles. The topics range from fun--music and fashion--to more academically stimulating--social issues and economic trends. Students will use Microsoft Word Newsletter Templates to make their research aesthetically pleasing to the reader.
