SCARLET LETTER
You are going to make your own three page (front
and back) newspaper from the times of the Scarlet
Letter. You can work in a group no larger than
three, and be sure to spread the responsibility
among all members equally. You need to include
articles, pictures, headlines, want ads, a classified
section, and perhaps a town activity section. At
least three articles need to be about the story of the
Scarlet Letter and how it is a part of town life. They
could range from articles about Hester and her new
role in town to Chillingworth and how he is helping
out Dimmesdale. It could be an editorial on crime
and punishment in the town, the separation of
church and state, or lack thereof, or the job that
Dimmesdale is doing as reverend. Be Creative! It is
highly recommended that, if you can, you use
Microsoft Publisher or something similar to make
your paper. Spend the necessary time and make
sure you pay attention to the specific requirements
for each issue listed below.
HAWKS PRODUCE QUALITY WORK !
I can't stress enough how important it is to do a good job on this assignment. Work with
your partners closely and make sure, just like a newspaper, that the author of each article
is written above or below the article itself. There needs to be equal amounts of written
material from each person to get full credit. You may not include more than two pictures
per page, and neither should be larger than the one I have included here. Your font size
can be no larger than TNR11 for this assignment. Good Luck!
