PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This assignment goes great with lessons on American Imperialism and the Spanish-American War. In this assignment, students create their own "yellow journalism" about an event that occurred during American Imperialism. I like to give this right after I teach about the USS Maine. There are two parts to this assignment:

1) Students create a yellow journalism 1) heading, 2) subheading, 3) brief paragraph of what happened, 4) a picture. This should all be sensationalized/exaggerated

2) For fun, students take a seemingly "boring" event and make it crazy like a tabloid.

Have fun! For the first part, I like to have students pick any subject that they want as long as we've learned about it in class.

TIP: An example is included :)
