imaginary virtual periodical, english assignment help

Your mission is to create an imaginary virtual periodical (such as an online newspaper or magazine) from a time between 1400 and 1800. You should choose a specific year (or even day) and location for your newspaper that you believe reflects an important moment in time. You can include events from around 50 years on either side of the date but the closer the better (and from beyond the locale). Together the various stories in your newspaper should form a coherent portrait of the times. You should create stories that you believe present important social political, cultural and/or religious developments of the era. You can and should mix fact and fantasy, although all of your stories should be plausible. Do your best to draw on a combination of primary and secondary sources in creating your plan > > > Requirements: > > > > > > Your imaginary periodical should be the equivalent of at least five pages in length (1250 words) and contain at least five stories, including one lead story and an editorial, both at least 250 words long. It would be advisable to make clear the perspective of the editorial (the writer of the editorial could be a noble, a humanist, a sailor, etc.). You are also required to include one article about a painting or object. Please clear the topics with your instructor before writing this assignment! Also, write a one page discussion of how and why you chose the stories in your imaginary periodical. > > > > > > > > > > > > Recommendations: > > > > > > Think of giving your periodical different sections on a variety of topics, such as politics, culture (books, music, art), sports, the economy, biographies, fashion, interviews, etc. Then create stories about people, trends and events of the era, that are likely to have happened. Write it like a periodical not an encyclopedia with details about events that reflect larger trends. Periodicals do not read like textbooks which summarize long periods or give straight factual biographies or histories of wars, etc. In other words you should highlight a timely aspect of a person, or topic, in a way that fits into your view of the period. Please give your stories some depth, such as the context explaining why something happened and who or what it affected. This is a work of the imagination which should mix both ‘fact’ and fantasy. Avoid writing about major historical figures covered in class (such as Luther or Columbus). This assignment allows you to offer a distinct perspective on the past.
