Why Use News?
Newspapers are excellent sources of information. Newspapers report about what is going on in our local communities, our states, our nation, and the world. Use a newspaper to:
- Find information about very recent events
- Locate in-depth coverage of regional/national/global issues
- Read about multiple perspectives surrounding an issue
- Examine issues in the context of the time they took place; see how people viewed an event when it happened
- Give a snapshot of a time period detailing how people lived (what they ate, what they purchased, etc)
Caution: Always evaluate what you find! The Evaluation tab at the top gives tips to help you critically evaluate the information you find.
