Quest - A Century of Steel
You will be required to write three articles:
- History of Sydney Steel Plant - This
article will highlight key stages in the plant's development
from its birth in 1899 to May 22, 2000 when the last rail
was rolled at the Sydney Steel Plant.
- Life as a Steel Worker - This article
must describe the steel workers job and the conditions under
which they worked. You may add in quotes from steel workers
you interviewed. Be creative with your writing.
- Black Friday - This article will describe
the events leading up to Black Friday and how the situation
was resolved. "First hand accounts" and interviews
can be added to your article.
Your information for the articles will come from the websites
provided on the resource page.
When writing the articles you must correctly describe the
events; however, you can create characters to "interview"
for your articles. Remember a good reporter wants to grab
the readers attention!
- The newspaper should include a masthead at the top of
the first page with a newspaper title and publication information.
- All articles must be typed in column format.
- You must include photographs to make your newspaper more
interesting and authentic.
- Use your imagination and copies of local newspapers to
get ideas to make your newspaper more authentic. Look at
how newspaper articles are written and try to copy the style.
