Day in the Life: Creating a 1920s Newspaper Create a newspaper that depicts the famous people and events that took place during the 1920s. Write at least 6 headline stories. Explain what happened in them. For example: Scopes trial pits Religion vs. Science = Headline Title Story: In response to challenges to their religious principles, traditionalists published a set of beliefs that came to be called fundamentalism. Tennessee passed a law banning the teaching of evolution, the theory that human beings and all other species developed over time from simple life forms. A biology teacher named John Scopes decided to challenge the ban, so he taught evolution in the classroom. The trial pitted Clarence Darrow, a lawyer famous for defending political and labor activists, against William Jennings Bryan, a former presidential candidate who argued for the literal truth of the Bible. Picture: Include illustrations with each of the 6 headlines. Be creative!!!
