Newseum provides newspaper front pages online

newseum-pagesIn a Google search to find the photo of a newspaper front page to use in today’s lecture on newspaper design and terminology, I was delighted to discover that the Newseum’s online site includes a section of daily newspaper front pages.

You can sort the newspaper selection by country or state and have great examples of design, story selection, font choice, etc. You use the site for big screen display to discuss parts of a newspaper, as I did today.

With national stories — from presidential primaries to the Super Bowl — you can show how the same story gets played differently. A great teaching resource for classroom use or individual student use.
