Find and translate Newspapers from around the World!

Here are two great newspaper resources:

Newseum Map of Newspaper Front Pages

889 front pages from 88 countries.  This map allows you to hover over an area and see the headlines of the local papers.  There is also a tab for archived papers.

Map of newspapers around the world

This site is not as easy to navigate, but well worth the effort!  It has links to 10,000 newspaper websites.   Using the interactive map, you can link directly to any of the newspapers located on the map and translate the paper into your language of choice!

Both of these maps have unlimited active learning uses in the classroom:

Current events, Biased reporting, Point of view, freedom of the press, etc.

I hope you will take the time to explore!  KD
