Quarter Two French Revolution Newspaper Project due 11/11/16
YOUR TASK: The French Revolution was a difficult time in French history. Citizens fought against their own government to make their voices heard. Your task will be to design a newspaper that highlights several important aspects of the French Revolution. Your stories should be based on facts from researching this time period. You may work with a partner or by yourself. Do not be afraid to get CREATIVE!
RESEARCH: You will have three days to work in the computer lab with Mrs. Petersen will provide sources for you to access from home and from school. NO WIKIPEDIA!
In your newspaper you will need to include the following:
*Title of the newspaper
*Four articles with headlines:
*An article on the causes of the French Revolution (money, bad harvest, & the Estates General)
*An article on the guillotine
* 5-7+ question interview with Marie Antoinette
*Top ten ways to fix a broken country according to Napoleon (You are going to have to come up with two of the ways on your own)
-If working in partners then each partner is responsible for writing two of the four articles. At the end of each article, the author’s name should be included.
