You have to fill up two whole pages for the newsletter with feature articles, stories, cartoons, reviews of the play, pictures, coupons, or advertisements that have something to do with the Shakespearean or Elizabethan time period. You will be working in a group of two to three people.
1) Assign jobs to each member in the group so that everyone is responsible for one or more parts of the newsletter.
2) Research your information for the feature article. Print only the things you need. Take notes from the internet whenever possible, instead of printing.
3) Decide what else your newsletter needs and research, draw, or print out those items.
4) Type out your article. Make sure you include a “by-line” at the top of your article along with the title.
5) Use Microsoft Publisher to layout your newsletter. If you don’t want to use it, lay out your two pages on construction paper before you paste everything down.
