What is a Newspaper Article?

Newspapers have these qualities:

  1. Articles are accurate and factual.
  2. Articles are balanced and give both sides.
  3. Articles are objective and unbiased.
  4. Articles are clear and concise.
  5. Articles are recent.

Some useful newspapers for this assignment are:

  • New York Times
  • Washington Post
  • Newsday
  • Boston Globe
  • Christian Science Monitor

You may find a great article in a newspaper from another city or state, but try to use U.S. papers.


Do not use tabloids:

  •  Daily News x
