I need help creating the newspaper that Mr. Underwood writes in To Kill a Mockingbird in chapter 25, pages 240 and 241. 

I need to include at least 2 headlines, 3 local news articles, 2 national news articles, and 2 editorials. Also, I need to 5 quotes, with page numbers, from various characters in the story in my articles and editorials.

This assignment sounds great. I'm happy to get you started, but I don't want to do all the work, of course. Here are some ideas:

Headlines: What about something about Hitler and the Nazis? What about worldwide economic crisis?

Local news articles: What about the pageant (for which Scout dresses up like a ham)? And the trial, obviously?

National news articles: How about something dealing with F.D. Roosevelt? Maybe something about lynchings of blacks across the United States or something about the Scottsboro boys?

Editorials: What about a society lady complaining about how the young girls today don't know how to dress or behave properly? Or what about someone criticizing the missionary to Africa for his racist views?

These are just some ideas. I'm sure that other teachers and students here will have more ideas.
