In this PBS lesson, from the Michael Palin's Heminway Adventure, students author a newspaper about Hemingway's life, especially his interests and travels. Students identify the many characteristics of a newspaper and culminates with the creating of a published document. Students examine advertisements, explore ways to inform, locate pictures of Hemingway, have fun with sports articles, and follow directions to create a finished project - a newspaper. Students strengthen their technology skills, exercise creativity, practice research skills, and examine newspapers while, at the same time, reinforce or expand new knowledge about Ernest Hemingway. Finally, groups share their newspapers with others in the class and school. Less
