Newspaper Map

Newspaper Map is a an online map that helps you to locate online newspapers from around the world.  Students can look at the map to see the number of publications located in different parts of the world.  The markers are color coded to show the original language in which the publication was written.  But, don't let a foreign language stop you from reading the news from Paris or Istanbul- Newspaper Map uses Google Translate to quickly convert the news to the language of your choice.  This site would be useful in Social Studies classes to learn about global news events or in Foreign Language class to read articles in their original languages.  Check out the historical newspapers, too.  These would be great for history class.
