To Kill a Mockingbird Webquests and Newspapers

Attached are two assignments to do in conjunction with Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird.
1) A group newspaper (rubric/assignment sheet attached) using Microsoft Publisher
2) A discovery webquest and comparison essay drawing connections between the Emmett Till Trial, the Children's March, the Scottsboro Trial, and To Kill a Mockingbird. (comparison worksheet, essay description, student-generated connections, and essay rubric attached)

Use my Webquest to facilitate the comparison essay:
