Newseum Journalism for Students

Describing itself as “the world’s most interactive museum,” the Newseum provides numerous online resources for journalism students and teachers.  Among them are virtual exhibits of the history of printed news, a gallery of Pulitzer prize-winning photos and photographers, and a 9/11 gallery.

There are current articles about the press, such as the six-year decline in press freedoms around the world.  You can also view the front pages of more than 500 newspapers from dozens of countries — plenty of ideas for layouts for your school paper.  The section on education has resources and contest information for teachers and students.

Although the museum closed in 2019, the online resources are still available as of this writing.
