Constitutional Reporting

Imagine you are three reporters working for a newspaper or news magazine covering the newly created Constitution. Your job is to present the document in a digestible form; you want to help a modern audience understand it, all of it, including the Bill of Rights.

The three of you are to cooperate and accomplish this task using both class time and technology for communication and presentation. Together you will choose a news bureau head and editor, create your format and parts of your rubric. This rubric must measure accuracy, sourcing, cooperation, clarity of language and thought. Beyond that you have a great deal of autonomy, especially in creative directions. (I'll help if you want.)

Depending on how much class time you want to use, this project is due either the 14th or 19th of December. You'll decide this together, too.

Use this document to communicate.
