Notes for Webizine: If you are creating a magazine you need to outline your textbook notes in an interview style (see link for format example). Pretend as if you are interviewing a person that is spoken about in the book. For example William Randolph Hearst, created yellow journalism ask him questions and create hypothetical responses that articulate the content from the chosen chapter.

Notes Broadcast: If you are creating a Broadcast you need to create a script and storyboard to outline your textbook notes in an interview style. You will need actors to pretend as if they are a journalist  interviewing significant figure described in the text.

Again for example William Randolph Hearst, created yellow journalism. Have one member play and journalist while another plays Herst. Ask him questions and create hypothetical responses that articulate the content from the chosen chapter.
