Intro Paper( Proposal Due Friday)

Note: If you prefer an alternative assessment you may propose that as well. Research, primary documents and a written assessment are required but the format does not need to be traditional. Examples:

  • A 1920s (any decade) magazine modeled after Vanity Fair, Sports Illustrated, US - etc.
  • Newspaper modeled on The Times, The Daily News, the Wall Street Journal etc
  • A journal/scrap book written by a solider in one of the following Wars: WWI, WWII, Korean, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan.
  • Photojournalism about homelessness in America (Jacob Riis as your model)

You get the idea - what ever the format the focus must be 20th cent. Popular Culture.
