Take a Trip to the Newseum

Question: Where can you go to find out the news of the day in your country as well as what’s going on half way around the world?

Answer: www.newseum.org

Every day, this Web site features the front pages of hundreds of newspapers from dozens of countries around the world. You can use it for culture-related activities, lessons on comparing and contrasting, or any number of other tasks. It’s also a good site to tell your students about so they can keep up with the major headlines in their own language while also being exposed to many English-language newspapers.
