Create a newspaper article about a major event or issue occurring during the Roaring Twenties (1920s). You will write the newspaper article as if you were a reporter FROM THE PERIOD. So you will use present tense and discuss the event as if it JUST HAPPENED and you are reporting on it (so you will not know major outcomes etc. – limit to what a newspaper would discuss immediately after an event). Be Creative and have fun with this assignment.
The topic/event I chose from the Roaring Twenties is the Harlem Renaissance
- YOUR OWN WORDS. Do not copy actual articles from the time period. Do NOT copy information about your event written on websites or in textbooks. Use the information/sources you find to write YOUR OWN headline. List your sources in APA format at the end of your article/transcript.
- Sources: You must use 3 sources IN ADDITION to the textbook – so four sources are required in total. (counting the textbook). These are content sources to help you learn about your issue and event and should be listed on a references page in APA format after your article/transcript. You should NOT copy anything from these sources as they won’t be written to meet the requirements of this paper, only to provide information about your chosen topic.
- Your article must be AT LEAST 500 words. Please do not go over 1000 words.
