Each morning, almost 800 newspapers from around the globe send the front page of their newspaper to the Newseum, which posts these original, unedited pages online. Newspaper pages can be viewed as a gallery, list, or map, and may be sorted by region or continent. Front pages can be downloaded as a PDF. There is a newspaper archive where newspaper front pages are grouped by “events of historical significance.” Includes the Des Moines Register, Marshalltown Times-Republican, Cedar Rapids Gazette, Dubuque Telegraph Herald, and Sioux City Journal.
Imagine the possibilities when talking about bias, information literacy, points of view, the relationship between the press and democracy, etc.
Newseum can be used in social studies, English, communications, science, journalism, foreign language instruction, etc.
