Task

Create some competition for The New York Times!

 

Your team has been hired to create a newspaper publication to inform the nosey people of the 1920ís about the latest happenings.  Your publication will be divided into eight sections: news, sports, advertisements, lifestyle, entertainment, editorials, obituaries and business.  For each spread in the paper, your team will write two articles based on the novel The Great Gatsby.

 

Each team member will be responsible for specific topics/articles throughout the newspaper.  In addition, it is important to include the basic embellishments and features found in a professionally published newspaper.  In the end, Engstromís and Prokopís Junior English Classes will vote on the best publication.  The team that produces the first place publication will receive the Pulitzer Prize for Journalism and be awarded additional compensation!
