Your assigned style is in the post below this one; this post contains the article assignment itself.
Create an article in the style of a given newspaper era. Choose as a subject a significant event related to the focus of your blog. (I will help you with this in class.) It can be historical or recent, but it must be true; you must do some research for this assignment.
The article itself?
-250 words or more (no maximum)
-an effective headline
-an effective lead
-stylistic markers (which I will explain more in class)
You may earn a few bonus points for using a picture that is both appropriate and appropriately captioned.
You may lose a few points for not taking the time to format this article so that it looks engaging -- a bit more like a newspaper and less like something you vomited onto the screen in between not doing your work.
Try to have fun with this. It's due on Monday, November 5; however, I will be grading you on what you do during the next two days.
