For the last two and a half months you have been observing and recording what’s been going on around you. Some are simple journal entries of what you saw, or were thinking or feeling at a particular time. In other entries you expressed strong feelings about things you were reading or watching on the news, or experiencing going on locally, in California, or around the world. Importantly, you have a record that you can now look back on, compare with others, and craft a narrative. We’ve talked about how journalism is the first ‘rough draft’ of history, Now, it’s time to look back and to compare what you were observing, with the observations of your peers and craft a common narrative.
So, now - over the next two weeks - you are to craft a digital newspaper (using the Google sites webpage format) of current events, locally, and around the world.
Working individually, or in small groups of up to 3 students, you are to create a digital Newspaper using Google Sites (recommended), or a Google Slides presentation. The purpose of the project is to inform, educate and entertain the reader with information specific to the historic times (Covid-19 Pandemic) we are living in.
