Product Description
This is a historical writing project for students to learn the concept of yellow journalism and how it contributed to the outbreak of the Spanish-American War after the U.S.S. Maine exploded.

Students write a 3-5 paragraph article in yellow journalism style. They can be as creative as they wish while writing a story that is about the explosion of the U.S.S. Maine and blame it on the Spanish.

Project includes assignment sheet, scoring guide, and examples. My students used Google Docs newspaper templates to create their projects.
