First Quarter Assessment
You will create a newsletter, using Microsoft Publisher, in which you examine
how one of the early civilizations we have studied in class displays four of the five
characteristics of a civilization.
After selecting an ancient civilization you will explore how that civilization
displays four of the five characteristics vital to the success of the selected civilization.
You will write four newspaper style articles (in one Publisher newsletter) that examine
how each unique aspect of that civilization is displayed. You must also include one
relevant picture (with appropriate caption) that supports one of your “articles”. Captions
and titles should be included in the proper places for each article. You should use only
two pages of the publisher newsletter. Your finished product will be the two printed
pages (pages do not have to be printed in color).
Also, a bibliography page is required (MLA format) so that I know from where
you received your information. You must use at least 3 sources.
Plagiarism is copying another's information and claiming it as your own. If you
are caught plagiarizing your paper, you will receive a zero on the project.
The paper is due Monday October 10, 2011 at the beginning of class. Each day
the paper is late will result in the loss of 10 points.
Remember – I am available for questions or for help. Just ask!
