Katie Couric, Brian Williams, Diane Sawyer
Imagine that you are the anchor person (ex. Katie Couric, Brian Williams, Diane Sawyer) for a T.V. News show. Your assignment is to write the introductory script for the evening news explaining the rise of the Populist Movement. The script must explain what the Populist Movement was about.
· Who were the key people involved?
· What were the key events?
· What issues were Populists concerned about?
After providing the background information in your introduction, you will write an interview with either a real person from the Populist Movement or with one of the characters from the book The Wizard of Oz about the Populist Movement.
